The ceiling might not be on your list of priorities during the renovation process, but know that it is just as important as the walls or the furniture. However, since most homes in Singapore are of the smaller variety, it can be pretty hard to design a ceiling that is the perfect balance of eye-catching yet understated.
On the other hand, 2018 is definitely going to see a rise in the show-stopping ceiling department because statement ceilings are becoming quite the ‘it’ commodity these days. The challenge here is to design one that can be attractive yet subtly elegant at the same time. So here are 5 amazing renovation ideas you can use for a show stopping ceiling design!
1.Work the contrast
The first thing you should always remember during any interior design venture is to work in contrasting colours. Similar is the case with ceiling designs – you have to use two elegant yet contrasting colours in order to truly make an impactful design. This living room ceiling design by 3D Innovations is a great example of this technique. The black offsets in the ceiling creating beautiful accents with the embedded lighting while providing an aesthetically pleasant contrast with the majority of the white surface.
2. Get unconventional
A ceiling design in a contemporary interior design doesn’t have to simply be a ceiling design. You can definitely create small extensions of it to merge with the rest of the interior design. These extensions do not have to be large, but you can definitely add a subtle lighting flair to make them stand out.
For example, take a look at this ceiling design by 3D Innovations – they’ve tweaked a typical tray ceiling design by designing a small ‘drop-down’ extension that add of the aesthetic quality of the space. You can take inspiration from this technique and customize according to your own home interior designs.
3. The magic of recessed lighting
Recessed lighting is an understated yet impactful way to embellish your ceiling designs. If you know how to work those narrow coves in your plaster false ceiling, then you can easily get a statement ceiling that is understated but impressionable at the same time.
Take a look at this living room ceiling design by Design 4 Space – they’ve used the periphery of the ceiling to work the magic of those recessed LEDs. It downs the space in a golden incandescent glow, which makes the entire ambiance cozy and comfortable.
4. Extension to fixtures
If you want to try something unique, then you can definitely go for a light plaster ceiling with a classic show-stopping light fixture in the middle. However, this set-up has to be incorporated in the right setting. For example, a living room interior design with a tray ceiling and a chandelier in the center is acceptable.
But here’s a unique example – you can create a small cove-lit nook with an attractive and stylistically relevant light fixture on top of the dining area as done in this interior design by Design 4 Space.
5. Simply fixtures
Sometimes, you don’t need clever ideas or extensive techniques to get a show-stopping ceiling. Sometimes, a knockout light fixture is all you need in order to make you ceiling a total dreamboat.
