It’s easy to paint the ceiling white then forget all about it, but you’d be missing out on an opportunity to add some warmth and depth to a room. Ceilings are basically a fifth wall, and while it’s traditional to paint them white, you can really have a lot of fun adding a splash of colour or a pattern that can create a sleek and sophisticated feel. Check out these easy DIY decorative tips, if you’re tired of those yellowed white ceilings!
There is nothing wrong with having a white ceiling, if that’s what you want. However, if you’re after something a little bit quirky and different, why not give these easy decorative ceilings a try? We’ve also found some excellent roof repair and ceiling restoration specialists across New South Wales who can help you out.
Give your ceiling a new colour
Painting your wall is a great way to add a burst of colour and texture to a room, that won’t be overbearing. If you want to add a bit of high-end elegance and drama to a room, a dark colour such as navy blue or even black will definitely achieve this look. Brighter ceiling colours are great for children’s rooms or bathrooms, or if you’re after something completely different—try metallic paint! This could perfectly offset a crystal chandelier for a room that oozes total elegance.
Use patterns and wallpaper to brighten up a space
Whether you use a stencil to create a patterned look or decide wallpaper is the way to go, there’s no doubt you’ll love the end result. Using patterns on a ceiling can really open up the space and make it look a lot bigger, just be sure to use light colours if you’re after an airy, open feel. If you’re keeping the walls neutral and to one colour, a patterned ceiling can really make it pop.
Love the rustic look? Go with exposed brick or wood
The rustic vintage look is on trend at the moment, which has seen a large increase in log cabin and cottage-style ceilings. You can try using recycled wood for the ceiling space, or add an exposed brick design using lightweight manufactured bricks or brick wallpaper. Either way, you’ll add a beautiful, homely feel to the space.
