In years gone by, people were aware that unique ceiling designs were as important as the design of the rest of the house. This is not so true today. Many homeowners do not place the same importance on the ceiling as say, the floors. However, with some creativity, unique ceiling designs can really give your rooms and home an amazing and unforgettable look.
While most ceilings are flat and mirror the size and shape of the floor, there are many ceilings that are sloped, domed, have exposed interior beams, air conditioning ducts or other beams and wiring in awkward or unsightly places. These elements need to be worked with and incorporated into your ceiling design plan, not covered up. Covering these kinds of issues will usually stand out more if not dealt with properly, so use them in your plan and you will have the best solution.
Ceiling illusions can cover up flaws and enhance any room. If the ceiling is lower, you can make it seem higher and with a high ceiling, you can make it seem to come down and be more personal if you’d like. The height of the ceiling should be proportionate to the size of the room, but that does not always happen. Unique ceiling designs can really help to change the atmosphere and character of a room to make it a more enjoyable space to be in.
There are many decorative elements that you can use, like ceiling medallions, ceiling rims, beautiful molding and even ceiling domes. Take a good look at your ceiling and try to get an idea of what kind of feel you think it should have. Do you want it to feel free and open or cozier? Once you have a good idea of the feel you want, you can start to build a design that will reflect that mood.
Molding is a really great design element that can be used to create interesting and unique ceiling designs. To start with, it can be used with just about any of the other great ceiling applications like lighting fixtures, painting and art applications, medallions, friezes, beams etc. Flexible crown molding comes in just about every style and ranges from the rather simple to the extremely ornate. You can even have your flexible crown molding custom designed! This is an especially great option if you already have beautiful carvings or plaster work that you would like to match.
If your space has rounded walls, then flexible crown molding is a must have. What is so great about flexible crown molding for your unique ceiling designs and wall decoration is that it is easy to install, it is light weight, but not fragile, it is easy to manipulate and easy to transport, it can be treated similar to light wood, you can paint it, the material it is made of is quite hard, strong and resistant, it’s size will not deteriorate and it comes in a large variety of shapes and sizes.
Unique ceiling designs can be accomplished with the help of flexible crown molding alone or in addition to other design elements. With its easy application, quality materials and many beautiful designs, molding can transform any room and if you take the time to learn to install crown molding yourself it can also be a great investment.
