When it comes to your home or office décor, there are many aspects that will impact the way you and your visitors feel. There is no doubt that a properly maintained environment is more pleasing and makes people feel more welcome. However, we often focus on such design aspects as the floor, walls, and furniture. One part of interior design that is often neglected is the ceiling. This really is a shame since you can add so much character, warmth, and personality to a room without giving up on space! When choosing the right ceiling for your home or business, it’s good to think about the impact it will have on visitors and how it will influence the way they perceive you or your company.


If you leave your ceiling untouched and without any real color or style, it can clash with the rest of the décor. For example, if you have a wonderfully modern setting and your ceiling looks old and outdated, then it will stick out like a sore thumb. By neglecting a part of any room, people will think that you haven’t really invested much time or effort into your interior design. For business owners, it’s even more important to make a great first impression, and this means that your premises needs to look its best – from ceiling to floor.

A fresh coat of paint

A fresh coat of paint might sound like a good idea and you’re not completely wrong. Painting your ceiling will at least make it look fresh and clean. It will not, however, hide any serious defects or damage. Applying paint to your ceiling shows people that you have put in some effort but you are not yet ready to invest in this part of the room/building.

For example, a classic style tile could look lovely in a traditional or contemporary setting.
