With its crisp lines and stark shadows — creating a softer look than the sharp angle of a 90-degree corner — Chamfer Bead is a favorite design choice among both drywall finishers and interior designers. A perfectly executed coffered ceiling, meanwhile, can single-handedly take a room from humdrum to elegant. Combine these two design choices into one ceiling detail, creating a coffered ceiling with Chamfer Bead, and you’ve got a room worth bragging about.
And that’s exactly what the drywall pros at Gary Johnston’s Plastering & Drywall did. We recently visited a custom home build they were working on in Naperville, Ill., where they were in the middle of creating a dining room ceiling that will be sure to wow their client.
