3. Coffer Ceiling

Ceiling trim gives a sense of elegance to any room. A big, luxurious dining space like this with bland white ceiling will make it look cold and off-balance. Hanging a beautiful chandelier at the center of the ceiling trim and right above the dining table will definitely create a magnificent focal point in this formal dining room.
