Most people focus on their walls, whether it’s changing the color, displaying artwork in gallery style, or hanging a mirror. To add visual interest and flair to your space, consider updating your 5th wall as interior designers like to call it. What is the 5th wall? It’s the ceiling! If you notice, most ceilings are white and flat which can be a bit dull. To give your space some dimension and texture, you can add panels, use beams, create an arched ceiling for architectural appeal, use wood in a herringbone pattern, or gild your ceiling. There are endless options for creating a beautiful stylish ceiling that is the focal point of a room. It will instantly transform your space. Check out some design ideas below to inspire you to give your ceiling a makeover with panache!
1. Coffered Ceiling
A coffered ceiling, also called a sunken ceiling, definitely makes a statement in a room when you walk in. A grid pattern is created using wood, medium-density foam, or fiberboard planks. You can then adorn the panels and beams with molding and other decorative elements if you want to dress it up in a more traditional setting. If you have a modern or contemporary space, keep the coffered ceiling simple and clean.
2. Striped Ceiling
You can paint stripes on the ceiling in various colors or use wallpaper in a striped pattern. Adding stripes will visually elongate your room and make a small space appear larger. It’s great for a bedroom, kids room, office, or nursery.
