They call the ceiling sometimes the 5th wall, and boy do people forget about it. I know we have overlooked this space before or haven’t really given our ceiling much thought. However, we do think a ceiling design can have a huge impact on your home decor. 

The best thing about ceiling makeovers is that they can usually be a DIY project. It might be time if you haven’t looked at your ceilings lately.

What can I put on my ceiling?

  • Drop Ceiling with new drop ceiling tiles. You won’t believe all the different styles you can achieve without having that old office building feeling.
  • Tin Tiles
  • Corrugated Tin
  • Paint- even just a fresh coat of ceiling paint can make a world of difference.
  • Wallpaper (yes, wallpaper)
  • Murals-think of a more modern mural and not the Sistine Chapel (unless that is your thing of course)
  • Texture using classic plaster
  • Different types of molding
  • A real beam or a faux wooden beam to create that farmhouse feel
  • Architecture details to create texture such as coffered ceilings
  • Draped fabric
  • Tongue-and-grooved wood for a textured look
  • Beadboard
  • Drywall
  • Decals that could go up the wall on the ceiling

Do you need help deciding what color of paint to use for your ceiling?

We recently just tried Samplize and it totally beats having to buy individual paint samples. These 9.75″ x 14″ samples will get shipped directly to you and save the hassle of clean-up (we loved that).
