Home interiors require skill and creativity to make them look presentable. Like walls and the floor, ceilings also need to be designed in aesthetic ways. There are various types of ceilings which are well-known for their looks and durability. Ceilings along with their lighting arrangements can make the room look stylish and illuminated.
Ideas to Choose From
Additional steps such as 2 to 4 can be used as an aesthetic incorporation. Therefore, if the original ceiling is 8 ft high, the steps can be either 8'6'' or 9' higher. The difference between the main ceiling and these steps in known as the depth or width of the ceiling and is also used to add designs to the ceilings.
As stated, the difference between the main ceiling and the additional layers or steps is called the depth. This distance can be made larger depending on personal choice. However, one good reason to keep this distance large is to add some decorative elements to the ceilings.
If you don't wish to overcrowd the ceiling, painting this area, with the same color as the walls, would look perfect. But if there is nothing other than an elegant chandelier or a fan hanging from the center of the ceiling. Block glass sections with ceiling lights, crown molding tiles or coffer sections will surely enhance the ceiling design.
The last but not the least are crown moldings which are a must for these ceilings. This is because they divide the main ceiling from the steps and also section out the individual steps from each other. They are usually wooden and color coordinated to blend with the ceiling and wall paint colors.
If you have a light background, using brown or black moldings would look great and if the walls are dark, white moldings are perfect. Crown moldings are available in various designs as well, so you can choose the ones that suit your ceiling the best. Make sure you don't overdo the moldings, as that can take the elegance away from the finished product too.
With these great designs, you can make your rooms look brilliantly stylish and classy. These ceilings are not an expensive choice, therefore, surely think about installing them to make your home more attractive.
