Designing your ceiling is probably one of the last things you have in mind when you are thinking about home renovation. While many of us are fine with leaving their ceiling plain and simple, it is a good idea to consider designing this (often) overlooked and underutilised space.

 

There are plenty of benefits of a well-designed ceiling. Just to list a few…

 

  • It shifts the design focus up to your ceiling and reduces the need for decorations;
  • It is an unconventional space where you exhibit your creativity and interior design style;
  • It is an impressive add-on to your interior design (honestly, not many would put much thought into ceiling designs);
  • And many more...

 

To throw you a few ideas on ceilings designs and how they can enhance the aesthetics or functionality of your living room, here is a collection of top ceiling designs, selected from The Interior Portal’s group of interior designers:

 

 

Charming Wood Ceiling That De-clutters Your Room

Noticed how the plain and predominately white-colour design transformed into a sleek and modern living room with the addition of a dark wood ceiling. It adds character to room without over-cluttering the room with decorative ornaments.

 

 

 A Witty Play Of Light On The Ceiling

If your house has high ceilings, you can consider draping chandeliers with complementary ceiling design. In this luxury mansion, the designers create a tray ceiling and contrasted the recessed area with a darker hue. When the light shines on the ceiling from the sides and through the chandelier, you see a wonderful play of light that creates an “ombre-coloured” ceiling. It is both classy and witty.

 

 

 Creating Individually Unique Design Theme

Everyone has his or her individualistic taste and preferences in interior design. For the homeowner of this whimsical home, it is evident that they are lovers of everything oceanic. The ceiling design is shaped like the blue waves to enhance this theme and doubled up as mood lighting to create a relaxing and cosy feeling.

 

 

A Homely Feeling That Cannot Be Made Possible Without

Adding false ceiling beams is a great way to emulate the cottage-inspired or vintage look. It accentuated the ceiling while giving off a warm and cosy feeling. Without it, the look just feels less complete. 

 

Another great example to showcase how decorated ceiling plays an important role in certain interior styles.

 

 

 Subtle Or Loud Statement Ceiling Of Your Liking

Another way to approach ceiling design is to furnish it as a statement ceiling. It has the same concept as an accent or statement wall but at a different location. Statement ceilings can be both subtle or bold but usually carries distinctive colour or pattern which breaks away from the overall design of the room.

 


 

I hope these designs can spark your interest in designing ceilings!

 

Do take note that several factors influence the suitability of different ceiling designs. Ceiling height, acoustics, interior styles, lighting position, colour schemes are a few to name.

So... before you decide on the ceiling design, check with your contractor and/or interior designer for its feasibility and suitability. If your interior designers are any of the firms mentioned in this post, I’m sure they will be more than capable to manage your expectations.
