You might not realize it immediately, but the ceiling takes up a pretty large visual capacity within your living room. Aside from the usual liability of aesthetics, a good ceiling design also determines the lighting accents and combinations. This allows the designer to place the right kind of lights around the right kind of space. This is why it is important to invest in a well done ceiling plan. It may be simple and concise, or it may be stylistic and elaborate – it completely depends on the kind of aesthetic you’re going for. Below, we will be looking at some great ceiling ideas worth investing in.
- Bring on the minimal
If you want a truly elegant ceiling design to match the modern contemporary vibe of your home than go for minimal. A simple lighting fixture over a highlighted area would be the best. As you can see in the image below, this kind of an aesthetic is quite straightforward but the impact is always powerful.
- The retail style
This kind of ceiling design has an industrial and/or retail vibe. It consists of a liner formation of spot lights that shows light on walls. This kind of design is used mostly for accentuating feature pieces within the home, but once in a while, it can be used as the only light source for the interior space.
- Simple ceiling fixtures
