What To Do With Boring ol' Ceilings.

Hey Blush

I haven't really been active on this forum since I joined. And I guess that it's time for a change Handshake
Now, I've been working on a house for a BPS Contest. And in my rooms I've noticed one thing. The ceilings are just plain, old and boring. I need some suggestions. What should I do with my ceilings?! It's driving me crazy.

Some nice cc & a bit of guidance would be very much appreciated. Thankyou! I have some pictures of the room I'm working on Smile

You could add beams like these or these. As your room looks a bit "exotic" dark wood beams could match.
Alternatively you also could make the ceiling wooden like flooring (but not both wood and beams) Smile

You can put any flooring on the ceiling so you can use wooden tiles (like I have here), hardwood (like here), or ceramic tile as used in the kitchen or plaster like in the bedroom (here) .

If you keep the colors subtle any of these could work in this room.

I think in that particular room, I'd pull the color from your accent wall partway up onto the ceiling. Whenever I remember my ceilings (I often don't!) I usually use the "simple flooring"' tiles and CASt them to something different.
