Always Looking Up

Upon first glance you may not think much of it, but your ceiling has the possibility of completely transforming your home. If you’re looking for a change, modern ceiling designs are anything but boring. Many of us dread the standard popcorn ceilings or stamped designs in plaster, but most of us choose to put up with them because, let’s face it - the thought of removing them can be messy and a long ongoing project. Talk about testing our patience!

 If the thought of scraping away dusty plaster makes it difficult to breathe already, consider hiring a professional to do your dirty work. After the mess has been handled appropriately, take some time to choose a design. The styles can be overwhelming and there are tons of options. Amy Courage, co-founder of Interior Design firm DesignBar says, “a ceiling update must be integrated with an overall vision for the room.” This means that ornate, metallic tin ceiling may not suit a rustic cabin themed living room. 

Also, consider the size of the room your planning your ceiling installation in. Dimensions and space play an integral part of the planning process. Some designs such as dark colored paint, may make the room feel much smaller and large, bold patterned wallpaper may come across as overwhelming in a large space. From candlelit vibes of gold metallic panels on the ceiling, industrial pipes intertwined overhead or the illusion of super-high ceilings all done with a paint job, the possibilities for ceiling design are endless. 

Our favorite? Reclaimed wood that suits several different decor themes including rustic, industrial and farmhouse. Plus, it’s a budget-friendly option too! Have fun exploring a new design element of your home and don’t forget to look up the next time you're in a new house, restaurant or office.
