What’s up? creative ceiling ideas for every décor

.

Vintage Feel


Color and texture on the ceiling adds an element of surprise in any décor. Tin ceilings originated in the 1880s as an affordable way to dress up a “fifth wall.” Today, affordable faux tin ceilings come in a wide array of textures, patterns, and colors. This contemporary kitchen has a warmer, vintage feel as a result.

 

Midcentury Modern

 

Cork—it’s not just for wine bottles and bulletin boards. This family room ceiling covered in cork and wood strips for added texture, gives the room a warm, eclectic vibe. The colorful furniture is a cool balance. Note: cork on the ceiling makes it super easy to hang temporary ornaments or lights for a party.

 

Flowing Fabric

Oh, baby! Who says lush folds of fabric are just for drapery? Create an ethereal, bohemian space by hanging fabric from the ceiling all the way down the wall to soften any décor. Who wouldn’t want to nap in this serene space?

 

Rustic Reclaimed

Tin roof, rusted. Usually found on the outside of a home, corrugated tin on the inside of your house is a bold move. Reclaimed tin panels come pre-rusted and well-aged, and are the perfect complement to a classic, bucolic country house. They also function to make a high ceiling feel cozier.

 

Upward Elegance

 

The perfect balance of light and dark comes to this elegant sitting room with a show-stopping ceiling. White overhead is traditional, but the custom plaster relief design is totally unexpected. Dark wood floors along with a dark grey wall color provide warmth and sophistication while the ceiling makes it feel bright and open.

Design trends: brightening up dark walls, glass backsplashes, and the wild world of wallpaper

.

Lighten Up

The Problem? Dark walls.

The Solution: Combine multiple light sources, add bright color accents, and resist over-furnishing. Voila! Less cave-y, more cozy.

 

Patterned Wallpaper

 

No need to buy elaborate furniture or replace lighting fixtures. Those small, simple sitting rooms can become bold and exciting with a little patterned wallpaper.

 

Glass Backsplashes

For a touch of glam, some extra light, or a feeling of extra space in the kitchen, consider a glass backsplash behind the range.

 

Embrace the Mismatched

Create a free flow feeling in your home with mismatched picture frames and staggered placement.

 

Taking Little Risks

Thinking about splurging on wallpaper, but scared to take the leap? The bathroom is the perfect place to make your wallpaper dreams come true. Less space to cover means it’s safer to take a bold risk—and less money to spend!

Design trends: pot fillers, swinging daybeds, and the latest and greatest in paint color

Pot Fillers

 

There’s something cumbersome about filling a bulky pot with water in the kitchen sink. But now you don’t have to! Pot fillers are brilliant little faucets installed right above your stovetop for easy fill-ups—and they make pasta night extra convenient.

 

All-Natural Kitchens

 

White kitchens are wonderful—but warm wood and soothing stone makes for a naturally rustic kitchen.

 

Create a Tropical Escape in Your Own Bathroom!

 

Lounge under the palm trees while you soak in the warm water—of your bathtub, that is. Surround your tub with green plants and tropical-themed wallpaper for a relaxing escape every day.

 

Swinging Daybeds

 

Swings and summertime…is there anything better? Instead of the run-of-the-mill porch swing, swinging daybeds offer ultimate summer relaxation. Warning: these comfy swings may result in long naps in the sun.

 

The Newest Color Trend 

 

Buttermilk is the flavor of the week in the world of colors. This hue is more inviting than white but softer than a pastel yellow. Perfect for the kitchen—or almost any other room in the home when paired with wooden trims and accents.
