Why are specific ceilings often under-appreciated as part of a home? One reason is that having a white and flat 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 the ceiling should stand out. Make a powerful statement that transcends a harmonized vibe throughout the rest of the rooms that reside within the home. A beautifully decorated 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 wow-factor ceiling because a 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, 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 ceiling, cove ceiling, or a drop ceiling that can quickly transform an under-appreciated ceiling. As already stated, the possibilities are beyond endless. However, remember when addressing a ceiling, it can add significant personality to any home. Even if you are looking to incorporate color to open the kitchen area up, the main point to always keep in mind is that it is about making use of your ceiling, which is brilliant, yet it is becoming a part of your overall living space.
