How much do you think about your ceiling? The chances are your answer would be not very much. But what if you made a statement of your ceiling?
Although artex is long out of fashion, there are plenty of other ways to make your ceiling interesting without it looking tacky. Read on to find out our top ways to make a statement with your ceiling.
1. Add a ceiling rose
Ceiling roses add some intricate detail to an otherwise plain surface. You could go for something with an elaborate design, or you could choose a more modern design with smoother lines.
They work perfectly in period homes – try one in a Victorian terrace for a hark back to the past.
2. Work it with coving
Coving doesn’t have to be boring. There are plenty of different types and designs available to choose from that will complement your room.
3. Make a centrepiece with your pipes
If you live in a converted warehouse or factory, you may have pipes hidden away underneath. Why not let them show and make them part of the room? You could paint them different colours to make them stand out, or polish them up to restore them to their former glory.
4. Uncover beams and inject with colour
If you’re lucky enough to have exposed beams, why not paint them in a bright colour? This could look fantastic in a kids’ bedroom. Try pairing red beams in an all-white room for a striking look.
5. Restore your old ceiling
If you have an original plastered ceiling, make the most of it. Uncover it and have it restored to its best and make it a centrepiece in your room. A great idea is to pair it with modern furniture to keep it looking contemporary.
