Master Bedroom Tray Ceiling Ideas

The master bedroom is your space, your retreat, your quiet, calming place.  The ceiling can reflect your personality and be a unique detail in this special part of your new home.

 

Adding a Trey Ceiling to Your New Home

Most builders offer trey ceilings as an option, but you may be limited to one particular style and size.  Other builders have several options.  Stanton Homes allows you to design a truly unique trey ceiling.

This master bedroom features a sitting area.  Both rooms offer a single depth octagonal trey ceiling, with a recess for optional accent lighting.  

The depth or height of a trey ceiling can be limited by what's above - if there is a room directly above the master suite, the trey ceiling might "drop" rather than "raise" the ceiling, and is usually limited to about 6 inches or so.

This master suite also features a private sitting room.  Here, the trey ceiling "interconnects" the two rooms in a truly unique treatment custom designed for the space.

This master bedroom features an extended height trey ceiling, with multiple layers of crown moulding. 

The "lower step" of the trey extends inward towards the center of the room, and an electrical outlet included inside the recess allows for the addition of future accent lighting.

A deep, bold color can really set off the architectural details in a trey ceiling.  The bright white of the crown moulding stands out very well against a deep blue, red, or green.

This dual step trey ceiling highlights alternating bands of ceiling color and wall color.

A luxury home can include all kinds of unique details.  This sloped trey ceiling in the master bedroom includes picture frame wainscoating details, along with a wallpaper treatment for the base of the trey.

The medallion centers the light fixture as the highlight of the room.

The width of the "steps" in a stepped trey ceiling can vary, changing the look and feel of the room. 

Standard widths vary between 6", 12", and 18" per step, though other options can also be constructed.  Steps size should be proportionate to room size.

A wider step can create a more ornate feel for the same trey ceiling. 

The wider the steps, the more materials and labor are required for the framing, painting, and trimwork in the trey ceiling. 

 

 

An extra deep octagonal trey ceiling painted with an accent color adds a lot of height and depth to the ceiling, without a huge expense.  This type of ceiling treatment can look very appealing in master bedrooms of many different sizes and shapes.

Standard height of each step in a trey ceiling is usually 8" to 10" per step.

Thus a room may have a 8' ceiling height for the "outermost" portion of the ceiling not part of the trey, then 8'8" height for the first step, and 9'6" inside the trey itself.  But heights can vary by room and design.

 

 Talk to your builder about the design you'd like to see in your new master bedroom.  Bring pictures, and explain what you have in mind!

Roy - happy to help.

Rob - there are so many different ideas, and many people aren't aware of all the different possibilities that we have available.

Carole - custom designed trey ceilings are one of our most popular "signature features"!

Katie - glad you enjoyed the ideas.  It really can be an inexpensive way to make a room very special.  We try to include two trey ceilings (master and formal dining) in just about every package we put together.

Trey ceilings really add a touch of elegance to any room especially when they are "electrified".  The effect can be quite dramatic.  Thanks for your post.

Mary - glad to help.  There are so many great ways to paint a tray ceiling!

Tom - and a cost effective way to add lighting to a tray ceiling is to make sure your builder includes a recess for lighting, along with an electrical outlet.  Then, you can add different types of lighting later.
