On the average, renovations for ceiling treatments in living rooms run from $500 to $2300 per project, varying on the types of material used, the complexity of the project, the type of labor and installation. Projects which are more complex are obviously more expensive. Some of these require multiple stage installations such as constructing a built up or drop ceiling and applying features. The height of the ceiling is also a critical aspect of the cost since high ceilings require added scaffolding and are more difficult to deal with.
