In most homes, a boring neutral shade is the default ceiling color. We think this is a missed decorating opportunity. Top Interior Designers in Lahore feel that just like the four walls, the right paint color above can transform the look and feel of a space. Here’s a look at some interesting painting ideas for your ceilings that will provide an antidote from the default boring color.
If you are blessed with high ceilings, don’t be scared to boldly paint them a darker shade. The height will absorb the color and produce an invitingly intimate environment. It does so in a way that no amorphous expanse of the “default white” can ever deliver. On the other end, while it may seem counterintuitive, painting a small room a darker color—including the ceiling—blurs boundaries, producing a sense of vastness, where square footage and ceiling height are, in reality, at a minimum.
According to some interior designers in Pakistan, if you have a room with a standard eight-foot ceiling, the trick to make it look bigger is to combine a dark shade with a light-toned wallpaper. For instance, you could pair dark gray paint with a powder pink wallpaper—this winning combination creates an amazing high ceiling effect.
Faux Stone Paint
In a room which is painted in monotone, for instance cream white or pewter gray, try getting a faux stone paint treatment for your ceiling. This looks wonderful with monotone-painted rooms, especially if the room you have chosen this for is painted in grays or whites. The faux stone ceiling will add an unbeatable appeal to the overall look of the room, making it grand and majestic. This idea works perfectly for the lounge and the central lobby of the house.
Bead Board Ceiling
Most people with inclination towards modern minimalism love retro white kitchens. To perk up this type of kitchen, add a bead board ceiling to it with a soothing, ethereal shade of paint like pale blue perhaps. Similarly, if you have a Scandinavian-inspired lounge that is replete with neutral décor and white walls, counterbalancing them with a bold teal bead board ceiling would look great!
Ceilings are the least popular elements with clients and little attention is given to them, however, looking at the same old conventional shades in these ceilings is synonymous to surrendering to the default. Take up the challenge to add an interesting, aesthetic flair to your room by redoing the ceilings with some of the aforementioned ideas, and ensure seeking professional design advice from Architects in Lahore prior to getting your ceiling installed.
