When we renovate our homes, we tend to forget about styling our ceiling. We don’t realise how much potential this blank canvas has to offer. 

Whether it’s covering up an old DIY mishap or simply injecting more character into your home, here are a few ideas for you to try.

A simple yet elegant way to vamp up a Scandinavian style kitchen is by incorporating baby blue coloured planks. The softer blue tone impeccably compliments the white cabinetry.

This Malaysian home opted for a tongue and groove ceiling to suit their minimalist zen living room. Choosing a lighter shade of wooden beams helped to brighten the space.

This home converted their ceiling into large glass panels, radiating the room with heaps of natural light. It also adds an industrial vibe to the room.

This Asian themed dining room added a touch of glam with hardwood inspired ceilings that feature tray lights. The room embodies a lot of Asian elements but infused a touch of contemporary design by incorporating an “inverted bonzai” chandelier.

This home in Putrajaya had their local interior designer create a coffered ceiling and paired it with a light fixture to suit the style. It is a modern take on the classical Renaissance architectural detail.

Solid colours are also a great way to accentuate and add character to a room. For instance, this homeowner painted their dining room ceiling black, achieving a minimalist monochrome style, simple yet chic.

This bathroom’s rustic Scandinavian charm gets levelled up with a deep royal blue tone. It adds great contrast against the stark white walls and dark wooden flooring.

When a room has dark walls and cabinetry, it’s best to marry it with a neutral toned ceiling. This living room is a perfect example as it features an earthy grasscloth ceiling. Grasscloth is a blanket term that’s commonly used to describe wall-coverings made of hand-woven natural fibres.
