3 WAYS TO MAKE THE BEST OF THE SPACE ABOVE
When it comes to home decor, ceilings are often overlooked. A well-done ceiling can not only become the unique selling point of your home, but also your everyday inspiration. Look up these tips to refurbish the ‘fifth wall’ in your room and take it from drab to fab!
Add some character to your ceiling by taking the unconventional route. Turn the plain white roof into a vibrant, eye-catching, patterned feature ceiling. This can be done by either painting the ceiling or wallpapering it. You can opt for bold geometric patterns, stripes, florals or any other motif that catches your fancy.
Create a warm and welcoming ambience with a wooden ceiling. Dark shades of wood can lend your room a rich and stylish tone. Lighter shades on the other hand look more contemporary and relaxed. Wooden ceilings are as functional as they are ornamental. For one, they keep the heat from the roof, at bay. A wood panelled ceiling with a hardwood floor is a classic decor combination that never fails to impress. Another great way to heighten your room decor is to install wooden ceilings that run to the wall.
Accent walls liven up living spaces by adding the much desired splash of colour. But if going with the norm is not your thing, this bold trend is for you. Paint your ceiling the same colour as the accent wall to add some extra drama to your home. Choose your colours carefully. Dark overtones can be used to redress the vision of a ceiling that’s too high. When done rightly, wall to ceiling accents can create the illusion of a higher ceiling.
With these little tips and tricks, you can make your ceiling the focal point of your house. Let the creativity begin!
