Home Interior Design Tips: Check Out These Trendy Ideas For Trendy Ceilings

When we look back and reflect on historic architecture ranging from Byzantine domes to Renaissance-era painted ceilings, ceiling design has never been straightforward. Elaborate ceiling designs are known to accentuate the architecture and elevate the user experience with exciting details ranging from meticulously detailed paintings to strategic play of light.

In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Apoorva Shroff, Founder and Principal Designer of lyth Design, revealed, “As architectural design began to move towards minimalism, ceiling design traded its grandeur for an understated minimal presence. It is only very recently that ceiling details such as pop medallions and moldings have found their way back into modern interior design.

She advised, “Celebrating a visual point of view, layering materials, textures, as well as colors, are all methods to explore the endless potential of ceiling design. Just as the famous saying goes, “Old is gold”, statement ceilings have made a comeback and are here to stay. Interior design is moving from minimalism to maximalism, whether flat or flowing, wood or fabric, coving or pendants, silent ceilings are a thing of the past.”

Stating that ceilings that stand out while complementing the spatial narrative of the layout undoubtedly complete a design solution, Rahul Mistri, Principal Designer at Open Atelier Mumbai, felt that a captivating investment in statement ceilings can be directed by simple and direct techniques. He listed 4 tips for the same:

1. The impact of colors – For contemporary design requirements, adding a bold color to the ceiling can be defined as the central element that brings the whole room together. However, in an effort to avoid the risk of a ceiling being too striking, wall coverings and elemental material finishes like veneer or laminate provide a cohesive ambience to interior spaces.

2. Flamboyant Patterns – To spruce up the look, hand-painted murals in bold color combinations can add a layer of organic character. For residences, the personalized nature of patterns and artwork adds an emotional connection between space and occupant, while for workspaces, motivational words can generate positive environments.

3. Architectural Details – Drawing inspiration from architectural design, elements like cornices, metal inlays, and textured surface finishes bring a touch of luxury to your space. With flexible profile options available in corner shapes and thicknesses, inlays can be effortlessly installed on site. Likewise, creating a layered behavior through textures can give a rustic yet complementary look to luxury spaces.

4. We love innovative lighting – When integrated at the design stage, the luminaires offer a range of options for designing streamlined ceiling solutions. Modules such as cove, track or magnetic lighting provide clean, contemporary spaces. Additionally, installation practices such as recessed, semi-recessed, suspended, etc. also produce innovative ceiling declarations.

An experimental approach and personalized ideas can really unfold impressive design solutions.
