Recently, there has been an increasing interest in redecorating ceilings. And, it isn’t difficult to see why. This part of the house is often ignored, but can have major style significance if renovated properly. If this is something that you are interested in doing, then here are the top guidelines and ideas that you should be considering:

Add a Stretch Ceiling

Want to make a statement but don’t want to make too much of an effort? Well, then choose stretch ceiling system for your home or office for a quick and easy fix. As there are so many designs and options to choose from, you can find one that will fit your space perfectly.

From mirror and glossy to matte and satin, it is up to you to decide what kind of effect you want to create. What’s more, you often have the choice to come up with your own design and customize your desired space to your specific décor style.

Paint the Ceiling

Since you are looking to make a statement, paint this fifth wall a different color to your walls. Unless, of course, your walls are painted in a distinctive color in which case this can be recreated on top as well. If you want to make the room look bigger, make the color one or two shades lighter.

 

You should also pay attention to the furniture or furnishings. If they consist of neutral colors, then opt for a bolder shade for the uppermost wall. On the other hand, if the rest of the décor is bold, having something a bit more balanced or softer can help to draw the eye upwards.

Add Artwork

If paint feels a little boring to you, why not opt for patterns instead? These can be hand painted, stenciled in, created with wallpaper, etc. The only thing to focus on is to select a pattern that suits the theme of the room. You will then be able to determine if the pattern should be modern, whimsical, vintage, etc.

It is also possible to place a carving or other physical, three dimensional art element there. It can be as simple or as intricate as you like. Just, once again, make sure that the artwork is a good fit with the components of the rest of the room.

Surround with Decorative Molding

Decorative molding is a great way to highlight any changes that you have made to the ceiling. However, there is no need to stick with boring old borders. Instead, do something interesting with the molding. For instead, use the molding to create a circular border in the middle of the room. Then, arrange your furniture underneath it.

This will offer up an especially gorgeous effort if the room is actually square shaped. Or, you can just stick the molding in a regular pattern. Even though it won’t make as much of an impact, it will still be eye-catching.

These are the top style changes that you should consider making them. Some of these can be made in tandem with other ideas to create an even more impressive effect!
