Today this design element is seeing a resurgence because of its uniqueness and the dramatic element that it can infuse into a house. If you are unsure of what these are, then think of all those ceilings that you have seen which have an angular ascent, following the pitch of the roof, and forming a peak.
The problem that most homeowners have with this type of ceiling is the difficulty they can have in decorating them. Here are few design ideas that you can use to dress up the ceiling of your room.
More often than not, we get so involved with choosing the right colors for the wall and matching furnishings that we forget that the ceilings of the same rooms are drab, dreary, and well, boring to say the least.
And if you have a room with a vaulted ceiling, it is important that the decoration of the ceiling take place before the work on the interiors starts in full swing. Let us take a look at design ideas you can use.
Try to play around with color combinations to create an interesting look on the wall. If you are open to the idea of prints on your ceiling, then opt for wallpapers with interesting prints. You can also use textured paints.
But consult your architect regarding this addition as you do not want the wooden beams to overshadow the room completely or take away from the appeal of the room. You can accentuate the wooden beams by using antique sconces on the beams for lighting.
Intricate Crown Molding
When you are thinking of using crown molding, then there are two ideas that you can use. You can either decide to follow the structure of the ceiling or create a second, fake ceiling below the actual height. If you use the second idea, it helps create the illusion of the ceiling being smaller than it is.
You can give your room a Victorian or Renaissance look with intricate carvings. It can be quite an attractive way of decorating the edges of the ceilings. You can opt to have a traditional or modern look with this type of design idea.
These are just some of the ideas for ceiling designs for homes that you can try out if you have a room in your house that has a vaulted ceiling. Consult with your architect and interior decorator for more ideas to decide on what could be the best look for your room.
