Look up!

 

Today I'm posting about something that isn't really talked about often, that I've noticed when it comes to home design and that's the ceiling. A well done ceiling can make a room. Here are some great ones!





I know when I have my own home I want high ceilings because it makes the place look for gracious and less cramped.

What's your take on ceilings?

I totally agree, the painting/tile/wood on a ceiling can totally change the look of a room. It is def. something people do not do enough. I love the zigzag striping!! That looks amazing!

I love when ceilings have some type of decor. I love the rustic exposed beams. I also prefer high ceilings, if a ceiling is to low the space just seems inclosed! I love the last three ceilings!

I love the exposed beams one! It's gorgeous. The chevron stripe one is awesome too. Great find.

I've been noticing this a lot too! My husband and I just started thinking about maybe, possibly {?} buying a house soon, and I would absolutely do something to my ceiling. It's necessary.

So excited to meet you soon Becca!

Kyle and I used to live in an apartment with super high ceilings. It was a really old building and the ceilings made it more expensive to heat (because heat rises) BUT I love the look of them and the way they make a smaller room seem larger.

Oh you're so right! Ceilings always go over-looked (or, in this case, under looked) too often! Never take a ceiling for granted- people WILL notice! When I get a house, I am absolutely treating the ceilings!!

so true! We rarely look up. But then again, I live in an old loft and when you look up all you see is piping!

Ceilings can be a great way to add interest in a room without overcrowding the living space! Love it!
