Columns can set the design tone in a room. A simple and cost effective way to dress up a column is to drywall it and add moulding to create a recessed panel. Paint the column in either a tone on tone color or accent the recessed area in a darker color than the column.
When remodeling your space, don’t forget to look up. A ceiling treatment can bring your room to a new level. Tray or Trey (each is correct) ceilings are a great way to add LED lighting to create soft glow ambience.
