Making a Statement Ceiling
There are many ways to create a focal point in a specific room, but have you ever thought of making a statement with your ceiling? Statement ceilings are becoming a trend in many households. Shapes, textures and even windows can create a ceiling that stands out from the crowd. If you want to get in on this trend, use the following ideas as inspiration for your statement ceiling.
Molding On The Ceiling
You know that crown molding is a big part of an accented wall, but why not use this stylish element on your ceiling? You can use the molding to create a pattern that looks like square panels. What may seem like a simple look above your coffee table or fireplace is actually creating a focal point in your living room. You can even draw attention to the pattern with one or two overhead lights.
Moldings In A Fun Shape
You can also add a fun look to your ceiling with moldings in a diagonal pattern. It’s a great way to give your tray ceiling, which already adds dimension to your basement, a little texture. One idea is to use the diagonal moldings to create a diamond pattern on your ceiling. Remember to have fun with your design rather than stress about the diamonds not being even.
Colored Wooden Planks
Are you looking to create a new vibe in your attic or master bedroom? You can create a cozy atmosphere with ceiling planks made of reclaimed red oak barn wood. The planks can be stained in an aqua or green shade to add a soothing vibe to the room. It is hard to miss a colored wooden plank on the ceiling of your bedroom or attic.
Round and Elegant
The dining room is another place in your home that works with a tray ceiling. You can paint the recessed area in dark blue and the drop-down portions in white. Now, the drop-down portions should create a round shape in the center of the ceiling. How can you add a touch of elegance to what is already a beautiful space? Hang a chandelier in the center of the round area.
Stained Glass Hallway
Are you thinking of changing the vibe in your upstairs hallway? You can add a touch of sophistication with a stained glass window, except you’re going to place the window above your head. This means you’re swapping out your ordinary skylight for a stained glass skylight. You can make the space feel longer by installing a skylight that fits the length of the hallway.
There are many ideas to explore for your statement ceiling, from an arched wooden ceiling over an entrance to a cathedral ceiling with a chandelier. You can find ideas that work for your traditional, warm or modern vibe.
It’s important to think about the type of look you wish to achieve in your home. You want to find a statement ceiling that enhances that look while adding a focal point to the room.
