When it comes to the interiors for the home, ceilings can often get left out of the frame. We tend to focus on the walls, furniture and decor and the ceilings can be an after thought. Which is silly because it is the largest surface area of the room! By not leaving your ceiling completely blank and creating a statement ceiling instead can bring the room together.
A statement ceiling doesn’t necessarily mean something over the top but just something of interest. Here are some cool ceiling designs to spark your inspiration.
A pretty cloud design for the ceiling finishes off this pretty powdered baby blue playroom nicely. Bringing the wallpaper design further down on to the walls helps creates the feeling of being surrounded by sky even more.
This dining room has gone for a moody floral wallpaper on the ceiling. A dining room interior with a twist, using a mix of modern and traditional furniture.
An eclectic bedroom design finishes the interior look with a bold floral up top. Mixing different patterns gives it a maximal look.
A minimal apartment design adds a bit of fun and interest with a geometric black and white print. Even by just adding a small section of wallpaper to the ceiling can make a big difference.
Using wood for the ceiling can make a space feel a bit warmer, especially in all white room. A chunky beam and wood panel design makes this hallway feel not so cold.
Wooden slats on the ceiling is a simple design but not boring. The ceiling here has been painted black to match the rest of the interior. With the different textures in the room it creates a modern look.
The same wooden slat design for the ceiling in a slimmer format suit this contemporary dining area style.
If you have a plain white ceiling adding some faux wooden beams is a nice way to add some detail to the space like this coastal living room.
Adding some bold colour between the beams will definitely draw your eye up to the ceiling.
This ceiling is painted a gorgeous emerald green. The top of the walls have been painted the some colour to match the ceiling with white panelling on the bottom of the walls. It creates an elegant space while being a bit different from the normal.
This small powder bathroom has been given a similar treatment but with a deep navy blue colour and white tiles for the bottom of the walls. Proving that small spaces can use darker colours with no problem.
You can try using one colour for the room but different tones for walls and ceilings like this green moody living room.
Having an ugly ceiling tile to deal with is the worst. There are lots of different patterns and colours you can try to add some interest to the room. A cool colour block design works wonders on the ceiling, designed by Anne Sage.
If you planned the design of your room properly then you can put together a cohesive colour scheme like this bedroom. The teal ceiling matches the rest of the bedroom perfectly.
Panelled Ceilings & Mouldings
A traditional white moulded ceiling can be just enough detail to keep the ceiling from being completely lost all together.
An ornate moulded ceiling doesn’t have to stay just plain white! Contrasting a traditional design with some colour is sure to get some attention.
You can integrate the trim design detail into the wall and the ceiling like this beautiful bedroom design.
Maybe you can keep the wall designs as plain as possible and go all out on the ceiling. This living room has a detailed and bold coloured ceiling with a moulding and panel design.
Keeping all the walls white balances out the drama of the ceiling.
Sometimes its enough just have a smidgen of a colour or design on the ceiling. This brush stroked mural only touches on the ceiling before making its way down the walls. Giving emphasis to the light fixture and the dining table.
