Adding Glamour To The Ceiling

by ·

In design the ceiling is considered the “5th Wall,” and it’s the perfect place to add drama and glamor. In the past few years the ceiling has garnered its share of well-deserved attention. From architectural moldings to wallpaper, the “5th wall” is finally becoming an important part of room design. And these are some of my favorite ways to add glamor to the ceilings.

Use moldings- it not only brings in architectural relief, but can also add pattern and interest. We recently completed a master bath renovation, and while our new bath room is beautiful, it also needed a little bit of visual interest.  So at the last minute we added a ceiling treatment and it truly added the additional “wow-factor” that was needed.

Wallpaper-While wallpapering the ceiling is not for the faint of heart, it’s so worth the effort. With the frequent introduction of new patterns, sheens and textures into the market, the hardest part will be making a selection. If you don’t want to commit to covering the entire ceiling, add strips of gold metallic contact paper to the 5th wall, creating a stripe pattern.

Paint-Ceilings don’t have to be standard white, if you want to add a little drama to the ceiling choose a paint that is different from the wall color. There are products that exist in the market which allow you to add a little gold dust or silver to the paint for added sheen. When my daughter’s bedroom ceiling was painted with stars we had silver sparkles added to the paint. Metallic colors are the perfect way to add a little glitz and glamor to a room.
