Modern ceiling design

Criteria for choosing a ceiling design. Modern interior design can provide a lot of options for decorating ceilings. Sometimes it is even difficult to make a choice since the design of the ceiling depends on many factors. And it is not always possible to take them all into account. Therefore, planning and careful preparation is an important part of any design work. We will help you understand the nuances of the selection.

Let’s start with the style direction of the entire room. It is important that the design of the ceiling matches it. After all, you will agree that the suspended ceiling will look ridiculous in the kitchen in the style of Provence, or in the living room Empire. Therefore, when choosing the decor of surfaces, do not forget about the general mood of the room and the style orientation.

As already mentioned, the choice of ceiling design depends on many factors. You need to choose the color, shape, style and material for the design. These criteria are influenced, for example, by the functionality of the room, its dimensions, technical features, and the overall style of the room. We will take into consideration the main factors that influence the choice: the style and purpose of the room, the material for decoration, the color of the design.

The ceiling is not only the upper space, but it is also the most important component, which is the logical conclusion of the entire apartment.

Style factor

Let’s start with the style direction of the entire room. It is important that the design of the ceiling matches it. After all, you will agree that the suspended ceiling will look ridiculous in the kitchen in the style of Provence, or in the living room Empire. Therefore, when choosing the decor of surfaces, do not forget about the general mood of the room and the style orientation.

Also, when choosing a style, pay attention to the functionality of the room, and the characters of the people who live in it. Believe me, it makes a big difference. For example, the art design in urban style, or ornate plaster ceiling decor for antique styles will only irritate pragmatic, scrupulous individuals.

Loft style house

This direction is suitable for people who are energetic and modern. This urban style is not comfortable to some extent. Although it has all the necessary details for life, the color design and tendency to minimalism, as well as a large number of urban elements, makes it somewhat cold and empty.

It will not fit a small room. Since the loft is dominated by dark colors, it will make a small room even smaller. But if you are the owner of a spacious room with high ceilings, feel free to choose this style for decoration.

For the ceiling in this style, the inclusion of brickwork in the composition of drywall structures and painting is suitable.

Suspended plasterboard ceilings are also perfect for this interior.

Classic style

For a classic ceiling, it is best to design a ceiling made of drywall and Wallpaper.

Plaster ceilings and vaulted ceilings will also fit perfectly into the classic interior design.

Provence

Warm and homely, it is perfect for the living room and kitchen. The peculiarity of this style is its craving for naturalness. It adopts natural color combinations and accepts environmentally friendly types in finishing materials. In this case, for the decoration of the ceiling, feel free to use natural wood, paint, plaster, natural stone elements.

Provence furniture should also be as natural as possible. Accordingly, the surface materials in this style take the natural color of the material. So, dark wood will make the room warmer and more comfortable, and the plastered ceiling will give the room space and freedom. This style is suitable for homebodies, people who love quiet and cozy evenings. Individuals who are happy to receive guests, like to regale them with culinary delights, and do not particularly want to spend time outside of a comfortable home.

Art nouveau interior designs

A completely new style that has absorbed elements of previous trends. It is rooted in the classics, adjacent to the loft and minimalism. However, this is an independent currency that differs from all previous ones. It is often confused with the high-tech direction, but they have some significant differences.

First, art Nouveau is characterized by smoother lines, but contrasting combinations. While high-tech likes sharper outlines of objects and images but does not experiment with colors – it works in the same color scheme, with harmonious combinations. So the ceiling in the Art Nouveau style may differ significantly in color from the rest of the room. Here we find black, green and dark blue decorations, which is a rather bold decision.

Therefore, the ceiling in the Art Nouveau style may differ significantly in color from the rest of the room. Here we find the non-standard ceilings: the ceilings are black, green and dark blue design, which is a pretty bold decision.

Finishing methods

For different styles, rooms, and in fact, people are suitable for their own materials and methods of finishing.

Regarding the style and functionality of the room: everything is simpler here. Each his own. A certain style has its own set of colors and ways of finishing the ceiling. What are the options at all?

  • Wallpaper for ceilings

The simplest and most common option. Most of all, it is suitable for classic style. However, with current technologies, more and more original models are appearing on the market. So you can find Wallpapers for any style. In the range of textile, and 3-D, and any orientation. So, you have a chance to find a model that after pasting can not be distinguished from a real art painting. Yet, initially, this is the easiest and cheapest way to design a ceiling. This option is suitable for small rooms with low walls, where the ornate design will be inappropriate.

 

  • Smear, paint, plaster

Whitewashing and staining are also fairly cheap methods. If the latter is often found in modern design, the former is extremely rare. It is used for the Provence style, and sometimes for the Mediterranean style. Its main feature is its naturalness, so it can be used by people who are prone to allergies. The disadvantages are short-lived. Also, the whitewash does not withstand high humidity. If the design of drywall ceilings will hide all the flaws and irregularities, then paint and whitewash will have to work hard to prepare the basis for the work.

 

  • Suspended plasterboard ceilings

This method is a bit more complicated and expensive. However, it is quite popular and common. In addition, it allows you to create the most unusual design options. It is characterized by durability and strength. If you choose the appropriate material, the design will be moisture-proof and fire-proof, which allows you to use it in any room. Of course, it is more difficult than the previous methods, but you can make such a design with your own hands. For installation, you will need sheets of drywall, guide and load-bearing profiles, anchors, screws, a drill, and a little skill. So, you can create any decor yourself. However, in the initial stages, we recommend that you contact the master for help.

  • Stretch ceiling

One of the most expensive, but at the same time common methods. Usually, this type is combined with suspended structures made of drywall. By adding hidden spotlighting to this combination, you get a luxurious modern ceiling design.

Since this material is less fastidious, it is especially water-resistant. But it will also require care. Do not forget to wash the suspended ceiling at least once every two weeks. The color scheme of this type is surprisingly large: here you will find blue, Burgundy, green, white, gray, black and other backgrounds. It will perfectly fit into the direction of high-tech, modern and minimalism.

The functionality of the room is of great importance

Moving on to the third important factor that affects the choice of style, color and finishing method-the room. Choosing the right type of finish for the type of room, you will get a quality design that will serve you for many years. Color and style also play a big role.

The ceiling for the bedroom

A place to sleep and rest should have an appropriate design. Here you can apply both glossy and matte surfaces. In fact, any type of decoration is suitable, as long as it does not weigh down the room. Therefore, some extravagant types will have to be excluded. It is better to give preference to a quiet design that disposes to full rest and recovery.

Therefore, in the style direction, give preference to modern, classic, Provence. Loft style homes, minimalism, cubism, and other cool styles can also be used depending on individual preferences. But it is better to move them to the background, leaving room for warmer and more comfortable currents.

What is better to do in the kitchen

Since this room is more susceptible to contamination, give preference to the appropriate materials. A good option is painting and stretch ceiling, also suitable washable Wallpaper.

Children’s room

Too much accumulation of details will only interfere with the display of the real idea. Stop at one or two ideas and implement them. What does this mean?

If the walls are already painted in the children’s room, then this decor on the ceiling will be inappropriate – make it simple and calm. Or Vice versa. Remember, everything must be harmonious, even in eclecticism.
