Coffered Entry Wall

I have a pretty tall front entry wall and it was boring me to death every time I looked at it. It was the same color as the rest of the walls and had absolutely no interest for such a large wall. So, I decided to coffer it :)

This is what the wall looked like before. I thought about adding family pictures, a gallery wall etc. I thought after a year I would get bored of the accessories I hung and would just have to change it again so I decided to go with something that was simple but had a great impact.

We started by having the wall painted white. I thought this in itself could be my backdrop for my gallery wall but after it was painted it still looked like a bore.

The coffer option was easy and cost $48.00. I ordered mdf planks from burton lumber (I would highly suggest not putting any type of ply wood product in your home especially in the hot dry St. George climate, stick with mdf or real woods, the fact that I live in a new home makes me cautious to always use long lasting durable products to add to the value to my home instead of devalue it).

I painted the plans first, nailed (and glued) them up, caulked, and touched up the nail holes and voila!!!!! Easy as can be and I’m loving the impact is has!


Client Testimonials
  • We had been looking for a good builder to build our home. We are from up north and were a little cautious about choosing a builder. Our in-laws had just built a new home and when we went to see it, along with seeing the American Heritage model home and the costs involved, we were impressed and approached American Heritage to build our home. We initially worked with Seth to formulate the plans for our home. We also worked with their architect and Seth contributed ideas as we went along. When the building started, Shem took over. He mans the building part of the home. We found both Seth and Shem great to work with. When we had changes that needed to be addressed, they were amiable and worked with us on them. Our neighbor next door watched as the home was being built and said that it was very good workmanship and he was amazed at how fast the home went up. He had built two homes himself. Shem had contractors lined up and it went very smoothly. There wasn’t hardly a day that went by when someone wasn’t working on it. We have had many complements regarding our home. The home has a good warrantee and we have called if anything was not right or needed to be fixed according to the plans, they immediately took care of it. We are really enjoying our new home. We love it, thank you to Seth, Shem and all the folks at American Heritage here in St. George, Utah.
