If you’re in the midst of a remodel or even just the process of decorating your space, you may be a bit curious about what you can bring to your ceiling to make it pop. Whether you have an outdated ceiling you don’t really like or you have a plain ceiling you want to bring a bit more personality to, there are plenty of ways to accent your ceiling and create a fun, dynamic look for your space. Here are just a few of the many ways you can use decorative ceiling accents to upgrade your home.


1. Smooth Things Out

One of the first things to consider when thinking about the ceiling you want is the ceiling you already have — meaning if you happen to have an outdated or unstylish ceiling you don’t like, smoothing it out can often be the best upgrade possible. For example, you may be pretty tired of your popcorn ceiling, and smoothing it out can bring a modern touch to any room. Plus, some popcorn ceilings can come off fairly easily — just make sure you scrape test it to make sure!


2.  Light Fixtures

Another great ceiling addition that can serve as both aesthetic and function is a light fixture. From chandeliers to more subtle hanging lights, adding a fixture can bring a dynamic pull to the center of any room. Try out different light fixtures and tones to see what works for your style.


3.  Crown Molding

Crown molding is a fantastic way to make any ceiling pop. Not only does it frame the ceiling and the walls, but it also brings a vintage look to any space. Also referred to as cornice molding, crown molding can elevate a space with a bit of visual charm. This can especially be great for simpler rooms in need of something that pops.


4.  Paint

While this might not be for everybody, some color on the ceiling can go a long way. While some people prefer to keep their ceilings white to cool down the space, painting the ceiling a darker color can bring a bit of coziness and warmth to a room. Additionally, painting your ceiling the same color as your walls can bring a sense of completeness and consistency to your space.


5.  Wallpaper

Is the paint not quite enough for you? Why not go for a full-fledged pattern by wallpapering your ceiling? While you can color coordinate with the details of the rest of the room, you can also go for something unexpected. Everything from floral prints to plaid is on the table!


Ceiling Accents for Your Home

Your ceiling is a part of your home, just like the walls and the floor — it’s a surface that deserves attention, and can tie a room together, even if you don’t see it at first. From installing a light fixture to painting it a fun color, there’s truly so much you can do with your ceiling. It’s all about what your style calls you to do!
