You might think of ceilings as space enhancers, not as sources of character for interior design. You are not alone, but you should start to consider giving these often-ignored architectural elements distinctive personality.
Statement ceilings are all the rage, and now is the perfect time to be playful and creative with your fifth wall.
Embrace Stained Wood
Celebrate the natural hue of your ceiling. The visual presence of timber can inject warmth in the room, especially when the floor is carpeted. It effectively brings Nature into your space, which screams biophilic architecture.
Every experienced kitchen remodel specialist will attest that stained wood can enrich any rooms that lack texture. It can also tie all pieces of timber furniture together to create a sense of harmony.
Introduce New Fixtures
Retrofitting your plain ceilings consisting of wide sheets with beams can lend more interest to your overall interior design. If you did not use wood planks for ceilings, these added horizontal features highlight length and visually elongate the space.
A more affordable alternative to solid beams is tongue and groove beadboard. It can be quickly installed on characterless ceilings. Paintable and stainable, this thin fixture allows future redecoration with reckless abandon.
Tile Drop Ceilings
Artistic tiles are becoming the darling of design build contractors. These fashionable grids make good coverings for false ceilings. Apart from adding an Old World vibe to the room, such tiles can provide simple access to compromised wiring and leaky piping. They can render the upkeep of your electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems more convenient.
