Tray Ceiling

Hi, i recently just bought a finished new construction home. I was interested in high ceilings, but this home has just the standard 8 foot ceilings throughout. Obviously i cannot raise the roof, but is there any way to make the ceiling "look" higher? Such as can lights. Also, is there any way to still put a tray ceiling in the master bedroom? thanks!

Welcome to the diy forums

While it may be possible to put in a tray ceiling, it won't be a simple task. It may require an engineer to design the framing, especially if roof trusses are involved. It is also possible that electrical, plumbing and HVAC may need relocating.

Look on the bright side - low ceilings should mean a lower heat bill.
