Something bold, bright and over-the-top lies just ahead. And when we say “ahead”…we mean literally over your head! We’re talking, of course, about the latest trend in ceiling design that features bold, funky wallpaper on the ceiling. For the past decade, the addition of a colorful or pattern-heavy statement wall in small spaces has been a wildly popular design enhancement. Expanding on that same concept, why not accent the space above your head?
Make Sure It’s Balanced
From bright colors and bold geometric patterns, to textured tiles and wallpaper, the options are limitless when it comes to making a statement with your ceiling. One thing to keep in mind when updating this space is to maintain balance between the floor and ceiling. Adding a brightly colored, heavily wallpapered ceiling in an otherwise neutral space can take too much attention away from the rest of your room. Balance the room with rugs, upholstery and fabric that provides equal weight to the space. Anchor the rest of your room with equally impressive accessories, colors and textures.
How to Do It
If you know you want to try out this trend, but aren’t ready for full commitment or a tedious DIY project, opt for peel-and-stick wallpaper. It’s easy enough for a beginner to install and can be reused. You have nothing to lose!
Another great thing about any fully wallpapered space is the ability it has to give the optical illusion of more room. A cramped powder room can feel instantly more spacious by covering all five walls with the right pattern of wallpaper, creating the illusion of more height.
