This master bedroom features a sitting area. Both rooms offer a single depth octagonal trey ceiling, with a recess for optional accent lighting.
The depth or height of a trey ceiling can be limited by what's above - if there is a room directly above the master suite, the trey ceiling might "drop" rather than "raise" the ceiling, and is usually limited to about 6 inches or so.
This master suite also features a private sitting room. Here, the trey ceiling "interconnects" the two rooms in a truly unique treatment custom designed for the space.
This master bedroom features an extended height trey ceiling, with multiple layers of crown moulding.
The "lower step" of the trey extends inward towards the center of the room, and an electrical outlet included inside the recess allows for the addition of future accent lighting.
A deep, bold color can really set off the architectural details in a trey ceiling. The bright white of the crown moulding stands out very well against a deep blue, red, or green.
This dual step trey ceiling highlights alternating bands of ceiling color and wall color.
A luxury home can include all kinds of unique details. This sloped trey ceiling in the master bedroom includes picture frame wainscoating details, along with a wallpaper treatment for the base of the trey.
The medallion centers the light fixture as the highlight of the room.
The width of the "steps" in a stepped trey ceiling can vary, changing the look and feel of the room.
Standard widths vary between 6", 12", and 18" per step, though other options can also be constructed. Steps size should be proportionate to room size.
A wider step can create a more ornate feel for the same trey ceiling.
The wider the steps, the more materials and labor are required for the framing, painting, and trimwork in the trey ceiling.
An extra deep octagonal trey ceiling painted with an accent color adds a lot of height and depth to the ceiling, without a huge expense. This type of ceiling treatment can look very appealing in master bedrooms of many different sizes and shapes.
Standard height of each step in a trey ceiling is usually 8" to 10" per step.
Thus a room may have a 8' ceiling height for the "outermost" portion of the ceiling not part of the trey, then 8'8" height for the first step, and 9'6" inside the trey itself. But heights can vary by room and design.
