A recessed ceiling dome can add an elegant touch to an entry or dining room. Domes are usually framed from site-cut plywood strips, a job that takes time and skill — but the Universal Dome Kit requires less of both. The installer need only frame the rectangular ceiling box (and a dome beam, if necessary); the kit comes with curved MDF pieces for framing the dome. A stock kit sized for a 5-foot by 5-foot ceiling box sells for $300; custom sizes are also available.
