"Your wall decor isn't finished if you forgot the ceiling treatments!"
For majority of homes, ceiling is looked at, as a simple, flat surface - most often plain white - that gets little or no attention.
Yes, it will serve as a base for mounting track lights, a chandelier, recessed light fixtures, but that would be all.
The only time when is being looked at ? When it's time to repaint the room.

Most people settle for boring, textureless ceilings, and don't even realize what a difference decorative ceilings treatments can make to their overall decor.
Choosing between ceiling treatments we present below, you can add surface and texture, and bring them to a new life.

If you want to make your wall decor to stand out, add color to your ceilings: either acccentuate them with a totally opposite color from the walls, if you want to show off a beautiful ornate molding, or a complementary one, if you want an understated look.
For example, this Imperial VP131600 Architectural Tin Ceiling Paintable Wallpaper imitates tin ceiling tiles, but it's made of stain resistant and paintable vinyl.

Ceiling medallions provide a simply and relatively inexpensive way to accent a ceiling. Even better, they can hide some holes where the lighting was replaced or repaired
They have the advantage of providing excellent soundproofing quality compared with plaster or drywall.
There are so many options to look at for planked ceilings: pine boards or Douglas fir ones, just to name a few.
They are easy to be applied, and it can be put over a large range of existing surfaces. Price is modic, and most of times, with a little bit of skills, it does not require professional installation.
The idea is the same with beamed ceilings, but the difference lays in the fact that beams intersect, so they form recessed areas, called ceiling coffers. Beams can be ornate or simple. Ceiling coffers can be painted, wallpapered, covered with veneer or tin panels.
All these decorative ceiling ideas should give you at least the starting point in changing your ceiling appearance: from a simple and boring, to an eye-catching one.
