coffered/tray ceilings and wall paneling
Hello, I'm currently building a traditional Colonial in a fairly affluent area in the Boston Suburbs. Comparative sales are between 1.6-1.8 million for 3,000 sq ft homes. This is for my family but I want to maximize home values. I don't really have a preference either way.
What is your opinion on coffered and tray ceilings. Are these "expected" at this price point. Also what are your thoughts on wall paneling. I've noticed that most new homes in the area fake it with molding as opposed to real raised panels. Do buyers ever notice/appreciate the difference.
Finally which rooms would you coffer, tray or leave plain and which rooms would you panel?
thanks so much
