Ceilings are one of the most exposed areas of any room. From virtually any angle, at least a portion of the ceiling is always visible. Light plays across ceilings, changing the look as the sun shifts throughout the day, often making imperfections apparent. Although plaster was used for centuries in many structures, the interior of today’s buildings use drywall, which is quicker, easier, and less expensive to install. And, who wants a boring old flat painted ceiling… when the sky’s the limit?
Wood (or the Look Thereof)
Wood is making a strong comeback in contemporary design and is prevalent in many of the projects we see across North America. And for good reason: nothing adds warmth to a space like a beautiful wood finish, especially when it’s in a ceiling.
Color, Color Everywhere
The use of color in a space is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it also can have a profound impact on the mood and well-being of building occupants. For this reason, we’re not surprised to have seen a significant increase in the use of color in ceilings applications.
Dynamic Shapes and Sizes
Another big trend in ceilings is the use of dynamic shapes that define spaces and architectural features. Shaped ceiling elements allow architects and interior designers to provide visual interest in a variety of spaces, highlight functional zones and support wayfinding. Some are even lit from above to create both ambient and dramatic effects.
These are just a few of the ceilings trends that will enhance your home.
