One way to add interest to a white ceiling is to create geometric focal points of color, over various spots in the home. This can include painting an oval over the dining area or a contrasting square over a seating area in a living room. This figure will most often be painted in the same colors as the walls or flooring, to tie the entire space together. This idea of unity can be carried even further by painting the walls and the ceiling different shades of the same color. If the ceiling is painted a slightly lighter shade, it will make the features fall away from the room, giving a low ceiling the illusion of being much higher up. The reverse is also true where a towering ceiling painted in a darker tone will seem to fall in on the room, making even overwhelmingly large spaces seem cozy.
If you have a room that could benefit from a ceiling light but there's no existing fixture, you shouldn't let that discourage you. Have a professional contractor or electrician come in and give you an estimate of the time and cost involved. You won't want to do this type of job yourself. Not only is working with high-voltage wiring dangerous, it's often prohibited in some areas. You'll have to check with your local building authorities about any code requirements before you begin.
One of the biggest lighting problems in many homes is the lack of a central light fixture in large rooms. Some living rooms, bathrooms and some family rooms and dens often have no ceiling light at all, but instead use things like floor lamps and table lamps. It's most likely that these homes were built with an eye toward cutting costs, as it would have taken a little extra time and expense to install a light fixture in these rooms.
