If you want a textural treat that visually expands a space, an unexpected designer trick is to apply wallpaper on the ceiling. Decorator Gwyn Guanzon likes to accent his projects' bedrooms with wallpapered ceilings—such a small detail that can up a room's luxurious vibe.

Here are Gwyn's topnotch tips if you're looking into doing the same for your space:

1. Be honest with your wallpaper supplier.

"Tell them it is for the ceiling and inform them of the ceiling height. Otherwise, misunderstanding will derail the installation." Be very wary of this, otherwise you might end up with uneven prints and patterns on your ceiling.

2. Prep the surface. 

"Make sure the area is clean and free of dust before installation." Even before the installers arrive, take it upon yourself to prep your ceiling. Grab a ladder, some soapy water with a sponge, and scrub away. Wallpaper adheres better to clean surfaces.

3. Have the ladder or scaffolds ready. 

"Usually, installers don't bring one," he says. Make sure to prepare everything they might need so there will be no excuse for them to do a bad job on purpose. It also helps to supervise the project to get the results you want.
