Let your house dazzle with these fabulous colour combinations for false ceilings

False ceilings like Christian wedding dresses are almost always white. Tradition? Perhaps. But do you really want to go down that oft-taken road? Yes, there is an unparalleled elegance and simplicity in white. And yes, white ceilings are modern and minimalist. However, they aren’t the only option when it comes to deciding the colour combination of the false ceiling in the bedroom or the living room. An aesthetically thought out colour combination can provide an additional element of visual appeal to any living space without taking away from the elements on the ground. 

Here are some unique and stunning colour options in false ceiling colours that you can consider while designing or renovating your dream living space.

False Ceilings In Regal Gold

We’re not talking shiny shimmery gaudy gold here – gone are the maharaja’s palaces of yore. But there’s no denying the warm glow that emanates from a beautiful matt golden-hued ceiling. Gold is a neutral false ceiling colour choice which would look fabulous in a bedroom or living room. This contemporary false ceiling is painted in a textured elegant shade of gold that is accentuated by the hidden lighting.

A Light Shader Of The Wall Colour For False Ceiling

Here is the middle path when you want to go with white but don’t really want to go with white (if you know what we mean). You can choose a colour for the false ceiling that is a lighter shade of the wall colour. Diluting the wall colour with white will give you the exact perfect shade to complement the walls without creating huge blocks of bright colours that hurt the eyes. 

This bedroom with different shades of mauve on the ceiling, wardrobe doors, and headboard is so pleasantly purple. There’s no feeling of a colour overdose here as the shades all vary slightly and the effect leaves one with a sense of coherence and harmony.

Black is not everyone’s cup of tea. Not when it comes to ceilings. But when the deep and dark ceiling is balanced out by the rest of the elements in the room, they can have a bold and striking effect, infusing high drama in a modern living space.
