Stylish Ceiling Designs To Look Up To (Literally!)

The ceiling of a property fulfils a very important purpose and also brings the whole place together. Apart from providing a solid structure and shelter, it can be utilised as a focal point to accentuate the entire room. We have gathered a handful of ceiling designs that are easily overlooked when it comes to bringing out a creative and lasting effect.

New Additions
If it’s time to spice up your ceiling with some upgrades or you’re ready for a fresh look, try incorporating new features that can transform the way you see your home without compromising the current space. There are a lot of ceiling designs that are built around shapes and patterns to consider, such as a wooden geometric-patterned ceiling or a snowflake-shaped raw wood ceiling. By including elements, like a herringbone ceiling or patterned metal ceiling tiles, you are able to subtly add some art without being too overwhelming. The inclusion of extra pieces like floor-to-ceiling curtains in the living areas and vibrant textures that link headboards to ceilings in bedrooms can make all the difference.

Light It Up
The correct ceiling designs and proper lighting work hand in hand to produce a great finish. If you want to make a smaller place feel bigger, a diamond-faceted ceiling may be the way to go to shift your perspective. The ceiling can be given some glow by placing undulating light lines to help complete a continuous look. The way the lights are positioned can also help set the mood. A tray ceiling with lights encircling around it can brighten up the space to shift the attention onto the meals while a dark, concrete tray ceiling with dimmed lighting suits the bedroom perfectly. You can add a unique twist by placing a stucco ceiling with slits to let artificial or natural light brighten up the room. On the other hand, there is the option of installing a distinctive lighting system that can be matched well with a glass ceiling.

Aiming High
The ceiling can be personalised even further by ceiling designs that bring a wow factor and make the property stand out even more. An awe-inspiring effect can be achieved through including a ceiling mural or a painted wooden ceiling contrasted with a bold colour on the walls. Alternatively, a consistent colour palette on the walls and ceiling can present an effortless and elegant image.

A Modern Take
For some residents, they may reach the decision that the entire place needs a new look through a modern make-over. You can opt to get with the times by setting up themes throughout the different rooms.  For instance, you may place a pressed-tin ceiling in the kitchen for a modern touch or a barrel-vaulted ceiling in the living room for a bolder statement. Another approach to have a more contemporary appeal can be through consistently keeping up a white and wooden theme from top to bottom. The classic black and white theme for your theatre room can balance the timeless look with trendy interior.
