CEILINGS – THE FIFTH WALL
Look up. What do you see? A plain white popcorn ceiling? Chances are you’re one of millions of Canadians who haven’t explored the option of ceiling décor. Designers are calling it the fifth wall in a room and have started to become more and more vocal about sprucing ceilings up. Here are some décor options to consider for your ceiling: Wall paper, or ceiling paper to be more accurate. Apply textured wallpaper to your smooth ceiling in much the same way you would a wall. It can be left its original colour, or painted for a more stunning effect. Or opt for a wallpaper that features a bold pattern or bright colour to enhance an otherwise serene room. Wood planks. These can be applied over a textured ceiling and can be painted or stained to match, or contrast, other woodwork in the room. Choose a lightweight plank and be sure to nail them to
joists. For added interest, angle the planks across the room, make a herringbone pattern or even add a few rows around the room before switching to a typical strip design. Corrugated tin . Using adhesive and screws, you can cover your ceiling with elegant tin ceiling tiles. Use them throughout a room or as a focal point above a dining room table or kitchen island, for example. Fabric . Think of a tent, but in elegant, gauzy fabrics that drape from the center of a room to the walls. Alternatively drape fabric across the ceiling adhering it every few feet with a wooden beam to create a cloud like look. Be sure to choose fabrics that are lightweight and can be stapled to the ceiling.
