5 Ways to Transform Your Ceiling

From dramatic colours to patterned tiles and wallpaper, ceilings have become the focus of many designers in recent years. Long gone are the popcorn ceilings of the past. In their place, we are seeing everything from embossed tin tiles to ceiling medallions. If you want inspiration for upgrading your home’s ceilings, check out these innovative ideas.

Painted ceiling

Adding paint to your ceiling is an excellent way to enhance its appearance. Opt for solid stripes for a classic look or double-down on a pattern that is already present in your decor. The key with a painted ceiling is to make sure that your colour or pattern is timeless.

Sculptural ceiling

Another way to liven up your ceiling is with sculptural elements. Add an embossed pattern over your entire ceiling or just around the light fixture. Paint the sculptural elements to match your existing ceiling or opt for a contrasting colour for some extra pizzazz.

Mimic patterns

For a real show-stopping ceiling, consider mimicking the pattern of your light fixture throughout your ceiling. Circles, stars or whatever piques your interest can make for a dramatic ceiling upgrade.

Black is back

Although it takes a bold personality to commit to this dramatic design, black (or dark) ceilings are a fabulous option to try. Make sure there is plenty of light in the room to offset the dark ceiling and add some matching darker toned accessories.

Embossed tin ceilings

If you want to combine three popular decorating trends, add large-size metal tiles to your ceiling. This combines the large tile, metal and upgraded ceiling trends for a look that is sure to impress.
