Red face trim decoration on ceiling

We are building a new home - it is possible to have a tray ceiling in the master bedroom (15x16). I was curious about have a regular ceiling, but instead creating a box shape with moldings. Is this acceptable - I have not been able to find any information on line about this. I am sure I have seen this done before. Any suggestions?

Check your local building center or mill that supplies moldings. There many sizes and profiles that can be used in different ways. Many opt for moldings on master bedroom ceiling for an added architectural element. You can use moldings to frame ceiling to give the illusion of a tray ceiling. If building, why not go for a real tray ceiling?,1793,HGTV_3464_2929994,00.html

While sometimes a tray ceiling can be installed after the fact, it is a lot cheaper to plan ahead. I've painted a lot of tray ceilings that utilized a lot of mouldings and a few that used none at all.

There are many different ways to approach crown moulding. I've painted some that had 5 or more mouldings tied into one crown. You can also get large and ornate crowns made from plaster.
