5 Ways to Spruce Up Your Ceiling

5 Ways to Spruce Up Your Ceiling

How often do you find yourself looking up at the ceilings of your home or anyone else’s? It’s likely that it’s not too often. This could be due to the fact that many interior design efforts are focused on specific rooms of the house rather than the ceilings. Most ceilings are typical, flat, and plain, but there are numerous ways to dress them up and impress your guests! Not only will your ceilings be impressive, there’s a chance they can increase the value of your home—now that’s a bonus!

If you’re in need of a change and some new interior design ideas, check out these 5 ways to spruce up your ceiling. Even doing one room can make a difference.

1. Tin Ceiling Tiles

Tin ceiling tiles come in all different colors (most being metallic), patterns, and textures that help to add flair to the whole room. If you can’t find the right color for you, they can be painted to match your existing home decor. It’s also good to know that a stylish appearance isn’t all tin ceiling tiles have going for them. They’re also moisture resistant, fire resistant, and require minimal dusting, and because they’re so easy to install, they’re one of the best ways to cover existing imperfections on your ceiling.

2. Decorative Ceilings

Decorative ceilings have the ability to change the whole look and feel of a room. Specific ones will even make the room feel larger than before, as well as allow more light to shine through. The different types of decorative ceilings include dome ceilings (perfect for hanging chandeliers), cove ceilings, groin vault ceilings, and more. Decorative ceilings are highly compatible with entryways, master bathrooms above the bath, kitchens, bedrooms, and basically any other room.

    3. Lighting

    Almost anything can be decorated, even lights. From crystal chandeliers to ceiling medallions, there’s plenty to do to dress up those lights on your ceiling. If crystal chandeliers don’t fit into your budget at the moment, there are others that can impress almost as much. Examples include pendant, lantern, glass, candle, and shaded chandeliers. The list goes on, but these are some popular examples. You can also opt for a ceiling medallion. A ceiling medallion is a decorative molding that surrounds the lighting. They’re available in different shapes and are sometimes used to match with the existing crown molding.

    Hint: If you have low ceilings, recessed lighting is an option. This modern look creates an atmosphere that is more open. In this case, hanging fixtures will only make your space feel tighter.

    4. Ceiling Drapes

    Ceiling drapes are eye-catching, especially in a bedroom or living space. They’re known to provide a cozy feel and are appropriate for any age. With all of the available color and fabric combinations, you can purchase ceiling drapes that are great for children’s rooms or mature adult rooms. Children’s ceiling drapes are usually bright and colorful, while adult ceiling drapes are usually more on the neutral side, but this could depend on the room’s existing color and decor.

    5. Paint

    Last but not least, and not always the most obvious, paint! While it’s true the majority of households have painted ceilings, it’s likely that most of them are plain. Instead of a simple white one, there are numerous ways to paint your ceilings that will make them pop. One way to do this is by making the ceiling your accent wall. Paint your walls a neutral color and then paint your ceiling a bold color, one that matches an item or a piece of furniture in that room. Another way to do this is by extending the paint from the walls to the ceiling. For example, you can paint the bottom half of your walls solid and the top half of your walls striped, then take those stripes and follow through across the ceiling. Finally, you can choose to paint a design. Depending on the room, examples include chevron, sponge paint, and clouds.

    Are you starting to consider your ceilings more now than you have in the past? If so, it’s time to spruce them up! Choose one of these ideas, or maybe even try them all. Your ceilings will be the center of everyone’s attention!

    Create an Eye-Catching Logo to Focus Your Brand

    Create an Eye-Catching Logo to Focus Your Brand

    We live in a world where brands surround us. We recognize companies through their logo designs rather than their service or products. Our philosophy is that if it’s a brand, it means it’s good. Why? Because it’s known and recognized by all. Youngsters prefer to wear Nike or Reebok footwear, even if there are the same designs in local companies, just because they will be easily recognized as branded by their friends and family.

    A logo is a statement of a business or a company and a sign of individuality, which distinguishes one brand from another. Even a child would recognize the M of the McDonalds, even from far away. The people use the logo to associate with the brand or the company. Creating and setting up a business is easy, but making it a brand is difficult. To make your business a brand, the most important thing is to create an eye-catching logo design.

    Gauge the Market

    Study your business or company and see the competitor company’s logo designs. Know the business in and out and write down all the important points and use them to create a related logo design.

    Research

    Conduct research about the client and customers and the target market. What is the business about? If the products cater to children then create a colorful and lively logo, while if it is for corporate parties, then create a formal and attractive logo.

    Link It

    Whatever logo you design, keep in mind that it should relate to the company and the nature of business. The logo is used to recognize the brand, so it should have connections with the company’s history and future.

    Font and Colors

    Always make sure to use bold and striking colors. Study the color therapy and what affect each color has on the onlookers. Choose bright colors for an attractive and appealing logo design. Use creative fonts so that it instantly hooks up the customers.

    Customize

    Learn Photoshop, Adobe, and Illustrator for that eye-catching logo design. Create a customized logo design with abstracts and images, or choose a picture. You can also make use of solid shapes or go with a flow and retro design. A tagline or your company name or your name initials can also be a logo design. Just incorporate it in a unique way, so it stands out from the others.

    The logo is a signature of your brand; it is one of the company’s most valuable assets. A well-designed logo is the one that exposes your business and communicates your message to the public.  Designing an eye-catching logo is not that simple as it sounds; it demands a lot of creative imagination and out of box thinking.  Whatever logo you design, ask your friends and family to view and ask them their suggestions and change and set it accordingly, as they represent the public. A well-designed logo should represent the true and perfect image of a company to the people. Make sure your logo design represents your brand and has striking effects.
