There will come a time in your life when you will look at your bedroom and think – it’s time for a redecoration. Many people get to this point and start planning ways to get the theme and feel of a new looking bedroom.

The most common features people tend to renew are the furniture, paint color and wall art. However, there’s plenty you could do with a brand new ceiling design. This is an underrated part of a room that can make a huge difference.

The best part about this is that there are a variety of styles to choose from, and this guide will help you determine whether rebranding your bedroom ceiling is an excellent idea. Here are ideas for you to consider:

Here are several ideas for selecting a style right for you.



  1. Drop Ceiling:

    This option is something to think about if you happen to have a high ceiling in your bedroom. By installing a dropped ceiling into your bedroom, you will be able to enhance the lighting of the room.

    This has certainly become a modern decorative option that many now install into their homes – particularly in bedrooms. A suspended ceiling will create plays of light and shadow that highlight the purity of the interiors’ geometric shapes.

    More precisely, a dropped ceiling consists of a supporting structure coincided with a set of covering panels. The supporting structure consists of a roof frame (usually made of light metal) sustained by steel tie rods, which are anchored to the main ceiling. Suspended ceiling panels can be made of different materials (from plasterboard to a metal sheet), but plasterboard is generally used in private homes



  3. Paneling:

    Paneled ceilings aren’t just meant for old cottages. These days they have grown in popularity and can be decorated in ways that look emphatic. If applied right, they can add plenty of charm to any room, so if this is the sort of theme you’re looking for your bedroom, then a paneled ceiling may just be the right match for you.

    Installing wood-paneled ceilings typically adds texture and warmth to a room. With this, you’ll have a perfect fit, especially if you consider the extra warmth. Being inside your bedroom is where you sleep and relax, so being as warm as you can be is vitally important.

    When it comes to wood-paneled ceilings, shiplap is commonly the go-to for many decorators. Using this particular theme will emphasize the height of your bedroom, while still keeping a space clean and uncluttered.



  5. Beams:

    Too many people solely focus on the four walls of a room when it comes to decorating. The fifth wall – your ceiling – is the part that sets the tone for the entire space. Is this what you want for your bedroom? If so, consider the option of installing exposed beams. Going with this theme will add more depth and texture – which gives the room an architectural impact.

    If you’re somebody who has quite a narrow bedroom and sometimes feels claustrophobic, then investing in exposed beams can help take away some of that feeling. The reason why this is possible is that beams can open up the room, especially if angled upwardly.



  7. Tray Ceiling:

    This option is a popular choice amongst decorators, especially when it comes a master bedroom. A tray ceiling will add architectural interest to your bedroom and turn a bland space into an elegant retreat. Furthermore, with the addition of the wood to create your tray ceiling, there will be an automatic increase to your home’s value.

    Typically, a tray ceiling features a center section that is several inches higher than the border of the ceiling. By installing this ceiling, you’ll have the chance to explore colors and paint the trim that’s covering the perimeter of the ceiling. The benefit of this is that it can turn a bland ceiling into a stunning focal point.

    If you are more of the creative type, don’t just stop at painting the trim of your tray ceiling. There are many more options for you to explore ways of designing your tray ceiling. For instance, how about installing mirrored tiles in the center? This is a way to create a glittering effect as the mirrors reflect light from the room. Or, perhaps you might want a more country or beachside design? If so, install beadboard at the top of the tray ceiling and paint it a soft color – like blue, white and grey. Furthermore, you can stain the wood in a warm, natural shade.

    You can hire a professional to build your tray ceiling, or you can do it yourself. Before you decide which option is best, consider the scope of your project, the materials you want, as well as your budget.



  9. Tin Ceiling:

Despite being more advocated with kitchens, tin ceilings can also work for your bedroom. For this to work, you need to consider how well the tin look will blend with your bedroom’s décor. Tin tiles provide a variety of stamped patterns and finishes which offers you flexibility with the design.

When you decorate with tin ceiling tiles, the room generates a more open and grand feeling. The tiles become a textured focal point in the room, and that’s a major incentive in decorating a bedroom – especially one you want to be proud of.

Ultimately, deciding to install tin tiles in a bedroom takes serious planning and expertly designed décor needs to match up well with the tiles you choose. The best way to get started with the planning is to decide on the theme you want for your bedroom (unless the theme is already in place). The next part is to choose the design of the tiles wisely. When you get this part right, it’s then about how to apply the tiles to your ceiling. Whether you leave them exposed, to add a little shine, or paint them, pressed tin tiles (or panels) might be just the thing to add a little texture — and a little classic style — to your bedroom.
