Elevate Ceilings to Greater Heights with Six Simple Design Ideas

Thank goodness we’ve parted ways with popcorn ceilings! But it’s time to look beyond the basics and create ceiling details that dazzle. We’ve developed six simple solutions to add extraordinary and eye catching characteristics to an interior’s ceiling.

Cool with Coffered

For a larger, formal room (especially one with high ceilings), a coffered ceiling application can elevate the elegance. With a simple grid, either painted or stained, the eye is automatically drawn upward to the added dimension. To further enhance the illusion of spaciousness within a room, install narrow beams closer to the ceiling.

Brilliantly Beamed

Interiors with exposed or painted beams portray an immediate and powerful architectural element. Either stain the wood for a beautifully rustic finish or apply a color to complement the room’s overall styling.

The Value of Vaulted

Lose the cramped and crowded! Sky-high ceilings allow light to shine while adding a sense of grandeur to the space. But, take the vaulted ceiling to an even greater level by applying paneling, crown molding or beams to add dimension and contrast.

Rejoice with Recessed

Recessed ceilings, also known as tray ceilings, are an effective way to visually break up interiors to emphasize the impressive height of a room. Strategically chosen lighting, or applied or colored beams within a recessed space can strongly accentuate and enrich a room.

Playful Paint

Paired with any of these dramatic design ideas, paint is a powerful approach to add contrast. Try a bold shade for a visual punch or softer tones to subtly highlight areas and add depth.

From paneling to paint, take a gander at these stunning ceiling details that Lita Dirks & Co. has installed in recent projects.
