Adding Some Flare to Your Already Custom Ceiling: Cove Ceilings and Oval Ceilings

Did you know you can add custom features to your custom ceiling? Whether you are adding a barrel ceiling, groin ceiling, dome ceiling or cove ceiling you can always add custom features to make each of these ceilings unique. A few ways to customize a ceiling is by adding a light well or a reveal.

A light well or light ring allows for accent lighting to be added after drywall to help accentuate your custom ceiling with mood lighting or sometimes as a direct light source. See examples below

Adding a reveal to your ceiling is simply completed when you slightly furr in a particular ceiling. When you build your ceiling in slightly you create a unique ceiling that becomes more noticeable. See example below of how we take a standard cove ceiling and add a reveal. It looks like a giant piece of crown molding.

When you are able to add a light well or a reveal you will ultimately help transform your custom ceiling into an eye popping feature of a home.
