If you are looking to achieve a cohesive design here are some tips to help you upgrade your ceiling.

Homeowners invest so much money, time, and love into every nook and cranny of their home, doing their best to make it beautiful, unique, and absolutely perfect. However, there is one huge part of their home that most homeowners overlook, and that’s their ceilings. Often called ‘the fifth wall’ by interior designers, this is the largest expanse of uninterrupted space in most homes, so it makes little sense to neglect it if you are looking to achieve a cohesive design. Here are some tips to help you upgrade your ceiling.

Ceiling Tiles

Unsightly drop ceilings are often a given in the basements of most homes, and while you can have them torn out and redone entirely, this is a major renovation that involves a lot of time and money. For a quicker fix, update your ceiling with beautiful ceiling tiles. This can be an excellent DIY project that allows you to customize every part of your home.


This is an affordable way to gloss over unfortunate popcorn or stippled ceilings that can detract from the look and feel of a room. Easily add a layer of visual interest to a boring ceiling. This is ideal for homeowners with medium DIY skills.

Wooden Planks

The modern look of a custom stained wood ceiling is both elegant and down to earth. Bring the beauty of nature inside with an inspired modern twist. While this type of ceiling requires advanced DIY skills, it makes for a unique and inspired way to update your ceiling.

Painted Stripes

If you are a somewhat skilled DIY enthusiast with a love of graphic color and a steady hand, you may favor painting bold stripes as a way to update your ceiling. This is a creative  way to liven up a room with a mostly neutral color palette with a splash of color. It truly makes the ceiling an eye catching centerpiece.
