As a home owner, improving the aesthetic appeal of your home is probably one of your main areas of focus. Often times the ceiling is an under appreciated area of the renovation budget.

Some home owners will make cosmetic changes in the form of an interior makeover which could include buying new furniture or repainting the house.

Sometimes a more nuanced but heavy change might be needed to give a house a makeover such as the flooring or adding a new wing or section/room. However, the one area that most home owners tend to overlook is the ceiling.
The ceiling of a house or a room can easily enhance the aesthetics provided it is done properly.

Selecting a Ceiling Material

There are a number of choices when it comes to selecting a ceiling for your home. Right from a tin ceiling to a wooden or painted ceilings, the options are wide as long as you are logical about which one fits with your décor. Here are some of the most common and popular ceiling options.

Tin Ceilings – Also known as steel ceilings, tin ceilings are golden if you want a vintage look for your home. They come in a wide range of hues which can easily match up with most décors and in fact, fit in well with vintage style homes, or conventional and or even eclectic styles. Another advantage of tin ceilings is that they are durable, and require minimal maintenance work.

Tip: We prefer a  powder-coated finish as opposed to painted tiles as they last longer.

Other Metal Ceilings – Aluminum, copper, and corrugated metal ceilings are equally popular according to home owners. Copper can be an ideal match in log cabins or homes since the metal holds an earthy appeal.

Corrugated metal ceilings or newly fabricated corrugated metal ceilings will work in homes with rustic décor as well as in homes with a more modern or industrial look. You could choose a painted finish look or retain the natural appeal and select a sealant finish look.

Wooden Ceilings – If you are the proud owner of a rustic and charming log cabin or house, then a wooden ceiling would obviously hold a stronger appeal. Available in a variety of finishes and perforations right from more exotic options to real wood veneers, wooden ceilings extend the rustic charm without impacting the design elements of your home.

Painted Ceilings – A painted ceiling, especially when used as a contrast, can help enhance the look of your log cabin or home. Dark logs can create a visual impression of a room or house being smaller than what it really might be. The best way to counter this impression is by choosing a contrasting paint color to help create a brighter and airy feel to the room or house. Paint is available in a variety of hues and textures which makes it easy to match with any décor.
