A ceiling is the single most expansive surface in your living space. Decorate it luxuriously or on a friendly budget to bring freshness and new life to it.

A ceiling is considered by many to be the fifth wall of the home. You can make it stand out as a stunning feature and a possible conversation starter by incorporating subtle or sophisticated ceiling decor designs on it. Decorate it with paint, wallpaper, lights, false ceilings and much more to give it an instant boost and a unique look. You can experiment with the ceiling in your dining room, living room, hall or even your bedroom as there are endless possibilities.

Here are a few tips to keep handy while designing your ceilings:

  • Lighting: Use chandeliers or structured pendant lights to dress up your ceiling in the social spaces of the house and use recessed lights or track lights in your bedroom for a more relaxed feel.
  • Paint: Use warm-toned paints to bring in more warmth and cosiness into your house and use cool-toned paints to make your room appear larger and airier.
  • Wallpaper: Use peel and stick decals on your ceiling rather than fabric or vinyl wallpaper as they are easier to install and more durable as well.
  • False ceiling: POP false ceilings, cove false ceilings and wooden false ceilings are trending these days. Use pop colours like blue or yellow to uplift the vibe of your living space.
  • Other decors: Use vases, decorative accessories, upholstery and throw pillows in the same colour family as that of your ceiling to create a more cohesive theme for your room. However, be careful not to go overboard with it as the final result can look overwhelming.

Finally, it’s time to dig into our amazing collection of ceiling decoration ideas that can be implemented anywhere in the house to make it more visually appealing.

Dome-Shaped False Ceiling Decoration

This dome-shaped false ceiling design for the living room looks grand and opulent. This type of false ceiling typically consists of an arch of different depths to give it a more three-dimensional look and hence, requires more vertical height and associated floor space to be installed.
