Creating a tray ceiling from 1980s recessed flourescent light

12 years ago

You know what I am talking about - those ugly flourescent lights covered by plastic panels (bug catchers in our home) that are recessed in the kitchen ceiling. They are typical of houses built in the 70s and 80s. I am thinking of creating a tray ceiling,putting crown modeling inside and then hanging a light or placing recessed lights. I just don't know what it would like and have had limited success searching for pictures on the internet of such a remodel. Does anyone have any photos or a website to give me ideas about what I am envisioning. Did you keep the area square or change the shape? Many thanks in advance
