We spend so much time decorating the different parts of our home—often neglecting nooks, crannies, and even the ceiling. It's not surprising though, after all, your guests wouldn't enter the space looking up, right? While the ceiling can be the least of your concerns, you still need to give it the right boost. Give white paint a rest and explore the different ways you can decorate it. Here are ideas worth considering:


Trust paint to be the go-to of many homeowners. Whether you're hoping to extend the color of your walls or create a statement—the right color can make a huge difference. Go bold with bright colors or keep it sleek with neutral picks. Check Pinterest for pegs you can follow.

Feeling a little creative? You can even paint a picture or draw a pattern using your chosen colors!

Dress up your ceiling with a chic wallpaper that complements your home's theme and style. It's best to consult with a professional and see how you can achieve a smooth and seamless finish. When choosing wallpaper, look for options that match your home's color palette or that of your furniture.


Make a room cozier and even more welcoming with ceiling draping. This tip can give your home a whimsical appeal and a quirky vibe, too. Choose drapes with lovely details that would complement your furniture. You can do this in the living area or in your bedroom, too.


Just like the wooden floors, a wood ceiling can also add a warm and country touch to your space. You can work with ceiling planks painted in white for a country chic look or keep the distressed finish for a rustic flair. Remember that it's best to discuss these options with a design professional.

Tin Tiles

For a vintage meets elegant look, tin tiles can create an impact in any room. Often seen in homes with dropped ceilings, these materials come in different colors, patterns, and textures that can add character to your space. If you can't find the exact tile you need, tin tiles can be customized, too. Consult with a designer to see how you can incorporate it into your home. Tin tiles are also easy to install—making it a good solution when you want to decorate and conceal imperfections.
