Where are Trey Ceilings placed within a home? While Trey Ceilings can be placed in nearly any room of the home - from the kitchen to the great room - they are most often placed in master bedrooms and formal dining rooms.

What are some of the most popular Trey Ceiling styles? Step, shallow step, vaulted, octagonal, angled, or single box are some popular trey ceiling designs.

The layers in this trey ceiling are taller, emphasizing the raised height ceiling. How many ceilings are painted white versus the wall color? We've found that white ceilings are slightly more popular - although lots of Chapel Hill new home buyers request painted ceilings as well.

Create character in your kitchen, with a trey ceiling that goes over the space where you spend most of your time. This example is clean and crisp, with a simple box appeal that serves as an extension of the show stopper chef's kitchen.

Give your dining room an incredible designer appeal, with a multi-layered octagonal trey ceiling accented by bands of color.

When the emphasis is on all the archways, you might want to opt for an all-white octagonal trey in the formal dining room. This provides the expected formality, while keeping most of the attention elsewhere.

Simple and sweet, this master suite with trey ceiling has a soft, warm feeling, with a sitting alcove that beckons just beyond.

When you enter your dining room through the wide swoop of this dramatic arched entry, the bold red and white of this traditional dining room reflects confidence. When there's that much going on in the rest of the room, use your trey ceiling as a punctuation mark, like this.
