When styling homes, there is little to no chance that sprucing up the ceiling is part of the equation—in fact, most homeowners just leave it as is. However, what a lot of people don't know, is that by simply dressing up the underside of the roof, one can completely transform a space as it draws the eye upward and not just around the room. To help you start utilizing this fifth wall, here are some ideas you can try: 


Lend some character to a minimalist-inspired space by using a geometric print on the ceiling. It doesn't veer away too much from the clean aesthetic, but it adds an interesting element to the room.

Give your cooking corner a farmhouse kitchen vibe with a pastel, plaid print! Pair it with white or wooden furniture and copper cookware to complete the rustic feel. 


If you want something more intricate and eye-catching, try a large print paisley in the bedroom. Avoid colors that are too dark and moody to keep the room from looking cramped. Keep the accessories to a minimum, too.

If you're styling a kids' space, take it as an opportunity to pick any loud print and use it to add a playful touch to the room. Pick one color from the wallpaper and use that as an accent color to keep the look streamlined.

You can do the same trick for the nursery as well! To save you the trouble of picking specific colors for boys and girls, try a metallic hue for a gender-neutral option. If you decide to convert the room in the future, gold works well in grown-up spaces, too.
