Thinking about sprucing up your interior this fall? Updating paint color or adding a few decorations are always a fun and easy update. This season, think outside the box. Your home is protected by a Bloomington roof, and underneath that roof are your ceilings. Give your ceilings a little love! When was the last time that you thought about doing a ceiling makeover? If you never have, read about some changes you can do.
Post-beam ceilings are a charming and beautiful update to your ceilings. The beams are actually on the ceiling and visible. It is easy to add to your ceilings to create an entirely new look and atmosphere. These beams can be decorative and create a whole new environment to a room. A common color for these beams is a dark color like dark mahogany. Consider using old barn beams too! A different color beam than your ceiling creates contrast. If the space is smaller, painting them the same color as the ceiling can make the room feel larger.
Coffered ceilings are another option to look at. This style has been used since the Roman and Greek time periods. This architecture style divides drop beams into a grid creating squares or rectangles. Coffered ceilings are an incredible design element to any room. This type of ceiling is typically used in a living room or dining room. With a coffered ceiling, that becomes a focal point of a room. Because of this, use more simplistic design elements throughout the room like a neutral colored wall and small decorative pieces.
A drop ceiling may be an option to consider if your basement isn’t fully finished and has plumbing and wires exposed. This is not as exciting as a coffered ceiling or adding post-beams, but it still is an update. Drop ceiling tiles make a grid and then are suspended from the ceiling. The suspension allows pipes and cables to be hidden. This is an effective way to update a room if you are looking for a practical project.
You have probably seen a tin ceiling at a fun boutique or restaurant. Create this unique look for one of your ceilings! There are multiple designs and styles. Tin ceilings can be screwed, nailed, or glued into place. Since there are so many options for tin, it is guaranteed to make a statement and a conversation starter for your home. Common colors are white, silver, and copper, but there are many other color palettes to choose from. If tin seems like a bold update but you are still interested try a tin ceiling in a smaller bathroom.
