Look up at your room’s ceiling. Now look around the room. Does something seem amiss? Yes, because there most definitely is. Why do we get into the habit of painting or tiling only our walls and leave the ceiling blank? There is so much we can do for our ceilings. After all, when you lay down to sleep or just look up, don’t you think your eyes should have something attractive in front of them? Let’s explore some design ideas for your ceiling that can transform your room altogether.
You can use simple white ceramic wall tiles for the ceiling or paint it or even delve into some imaginative design ideas for the same. Glance through the options mentioned below for all you can do to make your room’s ceiling more pleasing to the eye.
Ceiling tiles offer a huge assortment of choices for rooms with drop-ceilings. This idea is great for rooms with drop ceilings as they allow quick access to leaky pipes or damaged wiring. All you need to do is simply swap out unsightly foam tiles for glossy tiles to get a raised panel which can be left in a matte finish to help bounce your room’s light around. These tiles can even be customised with the paint colour of your choosing. This project is best suited for people with beginner DIY skills. The only tool needed to make this project happen is a utility knife to cut the end pieces of the tiles to size. Once installed, simply spray the walls and ceiling in the same shade for a major improvement.
2) Wooden Planks
Instead of only sticking to modern wall decor or paint shades, why not go for wooden planks? Wooden planks are the go-to product for a complete ceiling overhaul. However, this option requires you to bring in someone with a little more expertise to be able to make cuts with a chop saw, measure the planks meticulously for a proper line-up, and attach furring strips with a nail-gun. Once these wooden planks are installed, your ceiling will have a custom, stained wood ceiling.
3) Painted Stripes
Perfect for medium skilled DIY people, the painted ceiling project is an
innovative and thoughtful choice. All you have to do? Add a graphic impact to your white drywall with the help of a taped-off, painted pattern. Further, to create perfect stripes, measure 14-inch alternating stripes, and paint the same using a roller. This idea costs almost next to nothing and helps you escape the neglected drywall ceiling and add a splash of colour to your room.
