In the mid-1900s, textured ceilings were all the rage. Popcorn ceilings, drywall swirls, and some patterns that young homeowners might never have even heard of (orange peel, anyone?) are a standard feature in many older homes. Modern homeowners have such a disdain for this trend that in recent years, smooth ceilings have become the only acceptable option for many people. However, things are “looking up” when it comes to new ceiling trends! Home ReBuilders has noticed more and more clients becoming interested in statement ceilings done right.
Here are just a few of the ceiling features that our remodeling contractors can help you with:
Wood Paneled Ceilings
Perfect for creating a calming, nature-inspired atmosphere, wood paneled ceilings add warmth and character to just about any room in your home. They’re particularly suited for your at-home library, a unique kitchen, or any room with large windows that seem to spill out into nature.
This trend has become increasingly popular as shows like “Fixer Upper” show how to blend rustic farmhouse style with modern architectural features and décor. Exposed beams look fantastic in a large living room, any room with a vaulted ceiling, or a kitchen. Nowadays, realistic-looking faux beam solutions make this trend more affordable and attainable.
A tiled ceiling gives you the freedom to play with and showcase your own personal style in an unexpected way. Tin tiles impart a worldly, exotic vibe into a sitting or dining area, while marble tile can help envelop your bathroom in luxury from floor to ceiling as part of a bath remodel. Modern tile choices are lightweight and durable, making them the perfect choice for a playful home design.
The accent wall is a tried-and-true way to add a pop of color to your home – but the next big trend is a bold accent ceiling. With a few coats of paint, you can completely transform the look of your room. A jewel-toned ceiling with matching furniture is a smart way to impress guests and make your home feel like it truly reflects your style, without breaking the bank. Or, consider a pastel ceiling hue for a touch of whimsy and wonder in a new baby’s room.
While crown molding is nothing new, it’s easy to overlook if you don’t already have it. Crown molding adds a touch of elegance and a high-end feel to your home, without the investment of a whole house renovation or larger project. If crown molding is a little too traditional for you, consider a natural wood hue rather than the typical white molding to add some warmth and dimension to your home.
Daunted by the idea of such a unique project, or not sure what will work best in your home? Home ReBuilders’ design build team can help guide you through the process and figure out what ceiling trend is best suited for you. However you choose to outfit your ceilings, you’ll be surprised by just how drastically you can transform a room’s look and feel by focusing on this one area. You can enhance the look with dramatic curtains that draw the eye upward, upgraded overhead light fixtures that play nicely with your new ceiling, and furniture and décor that complement your ceiling.
