Without question, the most bare expanse in any Los Angeles home is the ceiling. But it doesn’t have to be dull and boring – you can make the ceiling the focal point of your room!
Statement ceilings are a huge trend for both new construction and existing homes. They can easily transform your space without taking up any floor or wall space. And, they look great in both small and large homes!
Some of the best statement ceilings feature simple, minimalist designs – they do not have to be bright, bold or heavily patterned. Let’s look at some of the best ceiling design trends to consider for your fifth wall!
Installing exposed wood beams on your ceiling is a wonderful way to add decorative charm. You can install aged-wood beams, but these beams are often expensive, heavy and may have pest damage. A better option is to install faux wood beams, which are manufactured with high-density polyurethane, but made to look like the real thing.
Coffered ceilings feature a series of indentations or hollows on the surface of a ceiling. Not only do they add character to the home, but also they hide imperfections and create the illusion of height. You can choose the architectural shape as well – rectangular, square or octagon.
Colorful Prints and Patterns
Looking to make your ceiling pop? Experiment with different graphic patterns and colorful prints. These designs will certainly make your room unique, and they’ll draw your eyes upward to make the ceilings feel taller and grander. You can achieve these prints and patterns with paint or wallpaper.
If you like the idea of installing wooden beams on your ceiling, consider making your whole ceiling wood! Wood ceilings are popular because they’re rich and sophisticated. And, you can still have exposed beams if you choose! Be sure to discuss your options with your residential contractor in Los Angeles, as wood ceilings can be made from solid wood, veneers or fiberboard.
A tray ceiling is an inverted ceiling that’s a few inches higher than the areas around the perimeter. This gives it a tray-like look, which is where the name comes from. Tray ceilings look great in larger rooms because they act as the focal point. The center can also be decorated with either mirrors or painting.
Statement ceilings are definitely popular right now, and they work for both new and existing homes. To discuss your plans for a beautiful, unique statement ceiling, contact Kavin Construction today.
