Why is a ceiling often under-appreciated as part of a home? One reason is that having a white and flat ceiling is often-times considered the norm. Ceiling design can vary from room to room, but whatever design is incorporated throughout the rest of the home, consider the kitchen the heart of the home and make the ceiling stand out. Make it a powerful statement that transcends a harmonized vibe throughout the rest of the rooms that reside in the home. A beautifully decorated ceiling will not only change the atmosphere in a kitchen, but it will transform the entire space. It doesn’t take much to create a wow-factor ceiling because a simple coat of paint can make a drastic change and complement each element that sits below.
The possibilities for creating a decorative ceiling is endless. From structural as exposed beams, decorative plaster, tile, glass, wood, the addition of a fake ceiling, and not to mention a variety of the other decorative aspects such as a tray ceiling, cove ceiling, or a drop ceiling that can easily transform an under-appreciated ceiling. As already stated, the possibilities are beyond endless. However, remember when addressing a ceiling, it can add big personality to any home. Even if you’re just looking to incorporate color to open the kitchen area up, the main point to always keep in mind is that it’s about making use of your ceiling, which is brilliant, yet it is becoming a major part of your overall living space.
