Featured Ceilings

If you want your space to stand out from the rest then look at adding a Feature Ceiling.  Featured Ceilings are a perfect way to add interest to a room and can be quite easily achieved.  Think of adding a different texture to your ceiling such as wallpaper, metal, timber, mouldings, paint effects, brick or tile or if working to a budget then re-paint your ceiling in a bold or contrasting colour to your walls.  Featured Ceilings can be very individual and can really show off your personality as they can be customised to any taste.  You can be as daring or as subtle as you wish by your choice of materials.  Check out these endless ideas in how you can add a Featured Ceiling to your space......

Tip: Consider the shape and condition of your ceiling when choosing your type of Featured Ceiling.  If you are creating a Featured Ceiling with paint and your ceiling isn't in the best condition then look at using a flat or matt sheen level paint so the imperfections won't be highlighted.  And if wallpaper is being applied over an uneven ceiling surface, don't choose a wallpaper with too much shine or a light weight / thin wallpaper as this too will make any imperfections very noticable.  Instead choose a thick wallpaper or even an Anaglypta paintable wallpaper which are designed to hide rough surfaces and give your ceiling a smoother finish.  Otherwise cover over your existing ceiling with timber, tile, metal or brick facing for a real industrial feel and to add that extra textural element into your space.
