are soffits passé?

My husband and I wanted to put a soffit over the double sinks in our master bathroom, to "frame" our grooming area - sort of create a little nook effect. Our builder says "no one does soffits anymore" --- true? I could swear I've seen lots of soffits in Houzz... maybe a certain style of soffit? Are there nuances of what is "in" and what is "out" in soffits that maybe even my builder doesn't know about?
Thank you for reporting this. Undo
oh_hey
we built our ceiling down to "frame" in our vanity area. it's not a soffit per se, but sounds like it's what you're talking about. i don't think there's any wrong with it. ours isn't deep, though, and it's framed out and almost complete covered by our crown moulding. but if it's what you want - then go with it!
