Want to create a statement ceiling but don’t want to break the bank to do so? We’ve got you covered with this list of great décor ideas that’s sure to elevate your ceiling décor to new heights!
Whether it’s painting an elaborate mural between soaring rafters or adding subtle patterns to a false ceiling, decoration schemes that include the fifth wall can really help to brighten up your space! Of course, with the many wonderfully unique and exquisite ceiling décor ideas out there, it can be hard to find one that not only matches your personality and style sense, but your budget too!
We’re making it easy for you with this list of our top picks.
When doing up a house, interior design principles always pay attention to colour and contrast, since this is one of the easiest ways to add drama to a space. Painting your ceiling in a bright, contrasting shade is a quick and easy way to create a stunning first impression. If you want to add more cohesion to the space without minimising the statement made by your ceiling decoration, items of the same colour can be added to your décor within the room, to tie things together.
If you’re looking for a unique way to decorate your ceiling, hanging décor ideas that are paired with a ceiling medallion are a great way to add a chic and modern vibe. A decorative ceiling medallion can help highlight a sparkly chandelier or add a touch of ornamentation to a sleek pendant lamp. You could even show off your artistic talents; craft your own combination of ceiling medallion and light fixture for DIY hanging ceiling decorations that are absolutely one-of-a-kind.
Don’t have the time for DIY hanging ceiling decorations and just want to keep things simple? Then paint the ceiling the same colour as the walls! For an illusion of spaciousness, use exactly the same shade to make the walls and ceiling flow together without visual separation. For a less monochrome look, pick a darker or paler tint of the same colour. This method works great for false ceiling decoration too; use the main room colour on your structural ceiling but stick to white or a different tint on the false ceiling to add more depth.
All trends see a rise and fall, ceiling decoration is no different, and not all design concepts might be for you. But just think about how common it is to see wooden or decorative ceiling beams, ideas like painted stripes are basically a homage to this same look and don’t seem all that startling any more, right? Bold stripes add fun and character, while more subtle stripes add a unique and ephemeral charm; choose bright or neutral tones to suit your style and space.
In the list of ceiling decoration items and ideas that are truly stunning and uncommon, is a starburst pattern that draws the eye to a central point. This home ceiling decoration definitely makes a statement! Use it in your entryway or home office to create an interior décor scheme that’s unique and striking.
If you don’t want to leave out the fifth wall, but love the way you’ve set up the rest of the décor of your home, ceiling decoration that takes inspiration from what’s already there might be that final step that helps tie everything together. Pick an accent colour from the patterns in your soft furnishing, wallpaper or décor, and paint the ceiling in that shade. If you have a moulded ceiling or one with decorative ceiling beams, ideas like this will still work, since you can use the accent colour to draw attention and focus to the existing pattern.
Tired of boring paint and looking for a super-quick and simple way to add depth, colour and pattern to your ceiling? Well, one of the easiest ceiling décor ideas is to just use wallpaper. And yes, you can wallpaper the fifth wall, too! Plus, if you have a drop or fall ceiling, decoration using wallpaper is particularly easy to install and apply, since most false ceilings have a very smooth surface. Just pick your favourite pattern and you're good to go!
If you're going for a glitz and glam look, faux tin tiles are the perfect solution for you. There are many advantages to decorating with ceiling tiles, and faux tin tiles in particular; they’re available in various patterns, come in standard sizes, are extremely easy to install (just stick them on the ceiling surface) and they’re durable too. Their metallic finish also makes them a complimentary, reflective surface for your ceiling hanging décor.
If your style tends towards the unconventional or you’re open to getting a little more elaborate with your ceiling decorating, a geometric design might be the perfect fit! Checks, a gingham pattern or a plaid design, are a little harder to achieve than stripes, but they’re a guaranteed way to make a unique statement! Don’t want to commit to an entirely chequered ceiling? Using a checked pattern as a highlight in your false ceiling decoration is a viable way to tone down the design while still maintaining an individualistic style.
Today, moulded ceilings can be custom-made and there are also many prefabricated patterns available. Plus, easy installation and application to false ceilings makes this one of the best-loved ceiling décor ideas. Whether it’s a simple design or an intricately detailed motif, moulding on the ceiling adds definition and depth, helps highlight your ceiling hanging décor and light fixtures, and can turn a boring room into a statement piece.
