The ceiling is usually not given enough importance but this is starting to change lately. Not so long ago everyone had plain white ceilings. It was fine but it wasn’t really fair that the walls were the only ones people were interested in making look beautiful. The ceiling deserves that too. So what can you do to make it stand out? Well, there are several possibilities.
For example, you could create contrast in the room by painting the ceiling a dark color and the walls bright or vice versa. This way it will stand out regardless of the color you choose. Also, if you opt for a plain and simple ceiling design, you can always accessorize it and decorate it with a beautiful chandelier or pendant light.
The design you choose for the ceiling can also be conditioned by whether or not you have a high ceiling or a low ceiling. High ceilings make a room seem more spacious and this is why they are usually painted a bright color.
Low ceilings make the room feel cozy and inviting so in this case you can also play with different colors and designs to make it look more sophisticated. Then there are also all the other possibilities such as having exposed beams, suspended ceilings, sculptural ceilings, cathedral ceilings, tray ceilings, drop ceilings, vaulted ceilings and all the other types.
