FAQ: What is a coffered ceiling? What about a tray?

Today I posted the following picture on Twitter of a home I showed in Urbandale. Great home...$269,900 and has this killer master bedroom. Coffered Ceiling 

I see home with a tray (or trey) ceiling in almost many new construction homes I see, so this was a nice surprise!

What's the difference?

Coffered ceilings offer squares or rectangles on the ceiling and has beams that make a pattern appealing to your eye. Many elegant homes will use this ceiling to add detailing with woodwork or to blend in support beams that may be in the middle of the room. A tray ceiling is a "drop" ceiling that can also be detailed. They can be dressed up with crown molding, lighting, or can have more than one layer. Also very pleasing to the eye. How about this tray ceiling...it lights up and gives a great feel to this media room! 

Home with the coffered ceiling is listed by David Peers of Coldwell Banker Mid-Am GR Have more questions? There are definitely more answers. Feel free to connect with me via Facebook, Twitter, Text, Email, or by cell. I’m happy to help.
