You'd be surprised how much more attractive a room can be with the simple addition of a ceiling medallion. Made of urethane, this architectural detail is a great way to draw attention to a chandelier or fan, especially in a dining room or foyer. The medallion has two interlocking pieces that are easily installed around a fixture, so you don't have to remove anything to install the medallion. It is fastened to the ceiling with construction adhesive and trim head screws in precut holes.

You'll find a range of styles from the classic to more intricate designs in sizes ranging upwards of 12 inches in diameter. You can paint the medallion before or after installing it to make it look like a natural part of the architectural details of the room. For a nice selection of medallions go to Inviting Home.

A handyman will charge $155 to install a two-piece 22-inch ceiling medallion, which includes the labor and material. But you can buy the medallion and adhesive for $105 and install it yourself, saving 32 percent. It's an easy afternoon project that will make a big difference in not much time.
