There's lots of reasons why we might not be looking up right about now, but maybe it's time. Literally. How about a ceiling makeover? While there are ton of decorative options, let's look at some ceiling makeovers just using a gallon or two of plain old paint. It's hard to imagine how different these rooms would look if they each had a plain white ceiling.
A darker ceiling brings instant sophistication to a room.
Stenciling adds a Middle Eastern flair.
A gingham painted ceiling - so fresh and cozy.
Stripes provide graphic detail.
What's not to love about a circus tent? Hard to believe this is a flat ceiling.
A black glossy ceiling and floor work perfectly together.
And here's the same idea - both ceiling and floor matte gray.
Any blue ceiling is a classic as mimics the sky.
The softest pink in a nursery.
Lively ceiling for a playroom.
And, of course, should money be no object, a lacquered ceiling. Ceilings can be as casual or dramatic as your imagination. While there's nothing wrong with a crisp white ceiling, a new color or design can update a whole room. And then, what's not to love about looking up?
