Interesting ways to decorate your ceiling

Why should only four walls in the room get all the attention, when there is one right above your head just waiting to express your style?

Designers sometimes refers to the ceiling as the fifth wall and if you think about it, it kind of makes sense. When it comes to decorating a fifth wall, (or rather ceiling) only your imagination is the limit. Here are just a few great ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

1. Silver shine. If you want a touch of metallic beauty in your room, chandeliers are the normal go-to lighting fixtures, but if you want to really enhance the luxury factor, consider decorating your ceiling in silver leaf to make your living room or bedroom the epitome of elegance.

2. Stylish stripes. Painted lines on the wall can be catchy, but when daubed on the ceiling they are sure to demand attention.

3. Tempting tin. In addition to adding a vintage style and great texture, tin tiles on a ceiling offers a stunning shimmer effect that acts like a mirror, enabling an opening up of the space. Combine with metallic Ceiling Roses to get the full effect. Find these at a supplier like

4. Leader board. The combination of blue painted boards on the ceiling and white cabinets in the kitchen creates a cool beach-chic vibe. Two chairs covered in blue and white upholstery complement to tie all the elements together.

5. Ravishing wallpaper. Gold starburst ceiling fixtures look amazing in the living room as an elegant showstopper in itself but placing silk wallpaper behind it makes it almost impossible to keep your eyes from drifting upwards.

6. Bold in black. Decorating your ceiling any shade other than the conventional white will attract attention to it, but perhaps none is a more daring choice than choosing black.

7. Magnificent moulding. If you still desire a traditional white ceiling, maybe add a little texture to it if colour is not possible for you. Geometric moulding patterns add modern appeal and it’s possible connect to white sliding doors in the same pattern.

8. Stunning stencils. To further highlight special architectural features like arches, for example, why not consider stencilled patterns to give them greater emphasis. Options for stencil patterns are limitless and can be as bold or subtle as you want.

9. Mix it up. There is no rule that says you have to decorate your space in just one material.  As if you were designing an accent wall, by opting to mix up your materials and fabrics, such as weathered wood combined with chrome, you can create a style statement without overwhelming the space.
