33 Beautiful Ceiling Designs That Will Make You Look Up

Ceilings are usually forgotten in a home renovation, because let’s be honest here: how often do you actually look up? But convert that flat, white and boring ceiling into something special, and your home is immediately on a whole new level playing field. It’s a great surface to try out outrageous design ideas, but it’s also a great way to introduce subtle touches that make all the difference. If you’re thinking of leaving your ceiling empty, these dazzling ceiling designs should change your mind:


1. The rest of the furnishings were deliberately kept simple in order to cast the focal point onto the ceiling. The thin wood slats accentuate the length of the space, while the wood tones bring much needed warmth.
