Default Coffered ceiling

Would anyone have a pic or two to show me what the difference between coffered ceiling and a raised ceiling. I googled it and all the pics are from custom homes. Is it the same thing? Thanks!!! Oh yeah coffered ceiling in my dining room and raised ceiling in my master bedroom. Thanks for you help.

this is just a guess but maybe coffered ceiling means you have the normal 9 foot ceiling, but the coffered part is lets say 8 feet? whereas a raised ceiling means that the highest point is more than 9 feet and the coffered part is 9 feet? i don't know.

Here are pictures of coffered and raised ceiling.

I preferred raised ceilings since the edges are not lower as sometimes with coffered ceilings (at least what I have seen). I also like the square look better.

I think they're all coffered ceilings...but they could all be raised ceilings too. It really depends on what your builder has in mind when they refer to it. Better make sure your builder knows what YOU have in mind.
