Perhaps you’re planning to renovate and repurpose an extra room in the house. Or maybe you’re starting from scratch with a newly-bought home. Whatever your reason is, you should never leave out the ceilings when planning the interior design of your new living space. You’d be surprised at how much the tiniest details in your ceiling panel can affect the overall vibe of your room, and at the same time reflect on your style and taste.
The ceiling: Suspended Ceilings
Suspended ceilings are popular and well-loved for their many benefits. They provide good coverage of unsightly electrical wiring and exposed beams. They also consist of lightweight materials, and they feature simple grids that are both classy and clean. This design also deserves additional points for allowing minimal effort for cleaning and maintenance.
Suspended ceilings are perfect for playrooms, studies, gyms/workout areas, and multi-purpose rooms that require good lighting.
The ceiling: Wood Ceilings
Wooden panels are often used for rooms used as work spaces. They are versatile; they may go from very relaxed in rustic or light tones, to professional and sophisticated in luxurious, dark tones. Wooden ceilings can match practically any room décor.
Wood ceilings work well on practically any room, but they look best on home offices, study rooms, and art studios.
The ceiling: Metal Ceilings
A room can easily turn from drab to fab with the use of metal ceilings. Tin ceiling panels can recreate the look of old movie places. Many of these metal ceilings come in a flat, dark color, which is perfect for absorbing light while watching or playing games on a widescreen TV. Aside from their upscale, contemporary look, there are also a good number of metal ceilings that help soundproof rooms.
Metal ceilings look striking on media rooms, gaming/computer rooms, home theaters, and recording/band studios.
The Ceiling: Personalized Ceilings
What better way is there to decorate a room than to add a personal touch? None.
It isn’t too hard to create a unique ceiling look that reflects your personality. Paint the ceiling panel in your favorite shade. Get creative and add some hand-painted patterns, designs, or even quotes. Or just go for pre-designed panels or planks that will look good on your themed rooms. There’s no limit to what you can do when personalising your ceilings.
With correct planning and matching with the room décor, personalized ceilings will look spectacular anywhere. They are most popular, however, in living rooms, art studios, libraries/reading nooks, and man caves—the perfect get-away spot when you just want to Zen out.
