The living room is the room where we spend most of our time and, more important, the place where we like to spend time with our family and friends. This is why every detail here matters, including the ceiling. You might ask why is the ceiling so important in a room. But when you lie down to relax, the first thing to see is the ceiling. And nobody wants an ugly ceiling, since it would spoil the beauty in the rest of the room too. Check out these great living room ceiling ideas and read our suggestions for it!
An impressive chandelier is what makes the difference between a dull ceiling and a wonderful one that your guests will admire long time! Depending on the rest of your living room design, you should choose one that is really amazing, whether in size or in decorations. Modern crystal chandeliers are trending right now, especially those who have hanging crystals. Not only that it looks absolutely elegant, but it also helps in reflecting light and making your living room more airy and well lit.
Although fake ceilings were out of trend for a while, you can still use them when inspiring for living room ceiling designs. They are great for hiding LED lights inside them and creating a special atmosphere. Of course, you have to be careful with the colors and models you choose so as not to contrast (too bad) with the rest of the living room. You can even create several layers of wavy fake ceiling sheets that will look very special and elegant. Add to it a great ceiling and voila!
The great part about choosing one of the living room ceiling designs is that you can play around with the colors. In general, people prefer to go for neutral or elegant colors for their living room ceilings, but you can’t deny that a combination between white and bright red wouldn’t look very nice. Also, the variety of combinations is basically infinite, but one golden rule you have to stick to is to respect the color scheme. If you’re not sure how to do that, perhaps it would be better to call a specialist.
Geometrical shapes in your (fake) ceiling are also another great design idea. You can match a modern or minimalistic design of the room with cut-out geometrical shapes in your fake ceiling. Or if you feel adventurous, you can even cut out your real ceiling, although it’s not recommendable. Moreover, you can play around with the sources of light and create nice effects by juxtaposing the sources and the geometrical shapes. Also, you don’t need to throw away the material that remains after cutting the spaces, you can paint it in your second color in the color scheme and place it around for a more inspired look. Take a step forward and choose the furniture and the details in the room (cushions, rugs, works of art) in similar colors or simply use just two colors for the entire room.
