Ceilings are an important detail of any home that, while often overlooked, can significantly change the look and feel of your interior. From cozy wooden beams to opulent patterns, there are many ways that you can spice up your ceiling and further improve on the aesthetic of your home’s interior.
In this post, we’ll take a look at a number of stylish ceiling ideas that will significantly improve the look of your home. We’ve made sure to include both higher-end options, as well as affordable alternatives for those on a budget. Let’s dive right in.
While smooth ceilings are suitable for clean, minimal interiors, adding some texture can greatly improve the feel of your room. A popular choice is the knockdown style, which is quickly taking over in homes that once used the now outdated popcorn ceiling.
What’s great about knockdown ceilings is that you can change the texture pattern to whatever you like. Perhaps it could match other interior pieces in your home, or be something entirely different altogether. Change popcorn ceiling to knockdown with this helpful DIY guide.
As seen in architect Michael O’Sullivan’s home in New Zealand, the herringbone ceiling is an intricate and impressive design that proves ceilings can be a focal point without compromising on the rest of the interior. The geometric patterns are best suited for modern spaces, but can also be pulled off in classic homes when the correct colors are used.
If you want to add a sense of class to your walls or floors, tiling is likely your first option. But did you know that tiles also make for great ceiling decorations? Tin tiles, in particular, are available in a variety of metallic hues and can make even the simplest of white roofs look like something out of a luxury hotel.
There’s nothing better than a warm, cozy interior where you can relax and unwind after a long day at work. While rugs and carpets are suitable options for making your floor feel more homely, wood is the best choice for adding a sense of coziness to your ceiling.
If your home has a more summery feel to it, some light wood paneling will further add to the beach house aesthetic. For larger, more wintery homes, darker wood is the best option. We recommend avoiding the darkest shades as they can make a room feel lower and more confined.
You can add texture by using multiple panels, such as a beadboard. These will not only make your room look bigger, but the sheen from semi-gloss finishes will also make your roof look higher.
Often seen in high-end hotels, coffer ceilings can add a great amount of depth and draw the eye upwards. The added dimension will also make your room look a little larger. The elegant, timeless appearance of the coffer ceiling make it particularly suitable for classic interiors.
