12 Attractive Ceiling Decoration Ideas You Should Try for Your Home Design


We’ve heard it said that the ceiling would be your fifth wall of the room. And most folks maintain them plain, paint them white, and forget about these. Ceiling decorations are the last thing on our heads when remodeling a room. However, I really do not want to overlook the ceilings in my home. I don’t want them to own extravagant designs; however they indeed are a terrific chance to add some attention, color, and customization to some residence. Honestly, I really like my bathroom ceiling so far. I thought it would seem right that I’d do every room of the house.

Unfortunately, I think that it would be overly much (although I do wonder if maybe I will replicate it in a single room, the music room, or perhaps the hallway). I’ve been attempting to find some other ceiling decoration ideas I can utilize within other rooms in my home. I have come across so many astonishing ceiling decorations and interior drywall repair in the process. I thought I should pass them along for you in case these receive your creative juices flowing for your home, although a great deal of these wouldn’t work in my residence.

  1. Stylish Stripes

Stripes on walls can be eye-catching, but painted on a ceiling, they have been sure to require attention. White lines and sage green highlight the ceiling inside the master bedroom.

  1. Stained Plywood Slat Ceiling

Since I started my bathroom ceiling, let’s begin with it.  This is hands down my beloved of all the ceiling decorations I’ve ever accomplished. 

I felt it might make the room feeling dark and cave-like.  It has had the reverse effect, in my belief. The ceiling in the room always is higher than eight feet.  I genuinely intend to do this in every room. I won’t, but I would like to.

  1. Leader Board

The mix of blue planks on the ceiling and the cabinetry in the kitchen creates a coastal-chic vibe. Both the two armchairs covered in a blue-and-white upholstery that is complementary tie the elements.

  1. Hanging Lamps

Lamps really are a cosmetic element for ceilings. They are suspended long-lasting to decorate this region of the space, and it is possible to find lots of different types. Nowadays, since the ceiling ribbon is booming, they indeed are much larger and are often hanging. For this, you need to bear in mind when decorating high ceilings, that they’re going to appear suitable.

  1. Wallpapered Ceiling

I’ve always wanted to wallpaper a ceiling, but I frankly don’t see if I have the patience for it. I have never done it before, but I would imagine as the adhesive dries, the paper might have to be momentarily tacked to the ceiling. Does everybody know? In any event, if you have got the patience (and neck as well as arm strength) for it, then it can look pretty amazing.

  1. Magical Molding

Perhaps adding a little texture to it instead of color might be for you personally if you still like a ceiling. The geometrical molding of the room adds appeal and connects at a similar pattern to the sliding doors.

  1. Plants and Flowers

Lamps are not the only real means to decorate ceilings. Flowers and plants are popular these days for decorating all types of areas, including vertical gardens for ceilings and walls. This trend is seen by us any place in the shops of the cities, which is also gaining traction for both other spaces and offices.

However, what sort of plants and flowers are for decorating ceilings, right? You could also hang perpendicular gardens from the ceiling, hanging plants, or use moss. We’ll show you ceiling decoration with dangling potted plants and lamps. The industrial-style decoration is incredible!

  1. Go Green

If your pop-up store has a ceiling structure such as sticks or metal beams as you want, it will be perfect for hanging other greenery and plants – as little or as much. From artificial ivy to Spanish moss, a grassy “air plant” that clings to the iron cord and does not need soil is a perfect choice for space.

  1. Iron Sculptures

Sculptures made from iron and other substances are a desirable solution for decorating ceilings. Various sculptures can be made depending upon the decorative style, using different materials. It’s striking and innovative, although it’s a little-used option for decoration. It’s just another notion as it’s original, we adore. Here we’ll show you the result of this kind of ceiling decoration in a Madrid restaurant. The appearance is impressive, don’t you think?

  1. Metal Ceilings

Besides, we provide some metal ceiling design thoughts assembled for you. The cool thing about them is they mostly are made of those matters that imitate metal; therefore, it isn’t that hard or expensive to execute these ideas in real life.

  1. Photos and Readymade Art

Banishing the white and covering popcorn ceilings up is also easier than ever. Large prints could be installed, ceilings can be printed with graphics and illustrations, and wallpapers with large designs can span the entire space.

Based on art or the photo, the ceiling can become the focus of a room or keep the design from floor to ceiling for a fully immersive experience. Consider using stained timber that is used as trim, your vintage map print, or art prints using abstract shapes or patterns. All may do the job with a modern vibe.

Event places or some galleries might already come with a ceiling that is decorated. It could be you decided to rent that space. If not, then a pre-existing or dangling system that is adhesive provides a frame out of which to display items that are lighting.

  1. Non-Traditional Color

White may be the safest neutral in the block, but that doesn’t mean anyone has to stick with it. Bold, bright choices could undoubtedly become the focus to draw the attention upwards in a place with dimensions. Bring down the color choice to the walls area solution to visually enlarge the room’s size.

A ceiling could pull together elements in a sense that walls will otherwise slip the focus from, instead of working in, harmony. A darker or lighter color pulled from the room’s décor can brighten up space, even though life can be added by using a color complementary to a floor.
