Interior Design for Ceilings
When designing interiors, a lot of people only focus on what is in their site line. Picking out the right furniture, selecting flooring material, wall color, accessories and window treatments are all elements that make up a space. However, more times than not, the highest plane of the room is forgotten about… the ceiling. Usually, most ceilings go untreated which is ironic because it is one of the largest surface areas in a home. Adding detail to ceilings is a way to add color and pattern to a space, it can be an added architectural element that adds charm to a home, and the possibilities of design features are endless.
One of the easiest ways to include a ceiling into a design is to simply give it some color. Painting a ceiling with a coordinating color or even an accent color can give a room a unique feel or a subtle design element. Keep in mind that darker, more saturated colors can make a room feel smaller and in turn making the ceiling look lower. The plane is usually the size of the room, so choosing a color will give the space a new feel and dimension.
Another way to add color and interest is through the use of wall paper. Don’t be fooled by the name, wall paper can be applied on the ceiling as well! The concept of adding pattern to a ceiling can be extremely unique and be a focal point of a room. Wall paper selection is very difficult and installation on walls is difficult so applying it to the ceiling should be left to the professionals.
Now-a-days people are always looking for added features in homes that give it a custom charm. Adding details in the ceiling is a way to accomplish this goal and will make it home stand out.
Applied molding is a solution to adding dimension and pattern to a home that is already built. This gives the area a one of a kind look without being overly dramatic. For new construction homes, playing with dropped soffits and tray ceilings can drastically change the dynamics of a room or a home as a whole. Adding architectural features can be an intimidating challenge so a professional eye and expertise should be accounted for.
