Why are ceilings often under-appreciated as part of a home? One reason is that having a flat white ceiling are often-times considered the norm. Ceiling design can vary from room to room, but remember, the kitchen is the heart of the home, and therefore every inch of the space should stand out. The statement should create a harmonized vibe within the kitchen that transcends throughout the rest of the rooms that reside within the home. A beautifully detailed ceiling will not only change the atmosphere in a kitchen, but it will transform the entire space. It does not take much to create a focal point because a coat of paint can make a drastic change, which will complement each element below.

The possibilities for creating a statement ceiling are endless. From structural as exposed beams, ornamental plaster, tile, glass, wood, the addition of a false ceiling, and not to mention a variety of the other decorative aspects such as a tray, cove, or a drop ceiling that can quickly transform an under-appreciated and bland ceiling. As I have already mentioned, the possibilities are truly endless. However, remember when addressing any wall, which is what a ceiling is, it can add significant personality to any home. Even if looking to incorporate color to open a kitchen area up, the main point to always keep in mind is that it is about making use of the ceiling, which is brilliant, yet it is becoming a part of the overall living space.
