A coffer is an architectural ceiling element that appears as a sunken panel in the shape of a square or rectangle. When installed in a room, it often becomes the most striking design feature adding a rich look of luxury and warmth that draws all the attention to the ceiling.
Including labor and material, a contractor will charge $1,914 to install a coffer ceiling system in a 12-by-15-foot room. If you have carpentry experience and tools, you can buy the material for $1,300 and install the ceiling to save 30 percent. No matter who does the job, it’s an investment you’ll enjoy for years to come.
The job involves planning the layout of the ceiling, installing the grid system, dropping the panels into the grid and then measuring and cutting the border panels as needed.
