Creative Ceiling Treatments for Every Room

Let’s take a break from all the Christmas decorating to talk about creative ceiling treatments. We think about our floors and walls, but often times our ceilings are left plain white. Take a look at these gorgeous ceilings to see how an impressive ceiling can become the star of a room.

A barrel vaulted ceiling is truly a thing of beauty. I would imagine this is the most difficult type of ceiling to install due to its curved nature. Look how gorgeous it is!

Here’s one glass ceiling you don’t want to break! An atrium treatment makes you feel like you’re cooking outside. Perhaps the next best thing to outdoor grilling.

The same house sports a rustic beamed and vaulted ceiling in a hallway. I love that the walls are a series of mullioned windows.

A cove is an unexpected ceiling treatment in a modern farmhouse style kitchen. It echoes the shape of the kitchen island below and becomes the perfect cubby from which to hang a pair of pendant lights.

Coffered ceilings can be given more depth and interest with contrasting paint on the ceiling and beams. It looks good no matter what room you find it in.

A circular wood-beamed ceiling decorates a winding staircase. Imagine how much different this view would look if the ceiling had been left plain white.

Tin ceilings are often found in Victorian homes and provide a wonderful vintage vibe. I have wallpaper on my dining room ceiling that mimics the pattern of tin. The realtor actually told me it was tin but we felt it and realized it was wallpaper.

  1. Moved to a new house earlier this year. I have a standard 8 foot ceiling and need to move my dining room fixture over a couple of feet. Considering coming up with a decorative moulding to cover the old footprint of the fixture (boob light – what were they thinking?) rather than redoing the entire ceiling. Something rectangular. Have you ever seen anything like that?

  2. I love the vaulted and beamed ceiling. Mainly because it is what I envision for my combo dining room and kitchen ceiling. Of course, that will only happen if someone gives me the money for the construction with the stipulation that I have to use it on my current home.
