Remodeling your home is a tough task but is worth the time and money put into the project once you see your home's new found beauty. If you are looking for a quick make over in one room, you may want to consider just adding a coat of paint and some new ceiling tiles. This can prove to be an inexpensive way to change the feel of a room without putting more than a day's time worth of work into the project, and will save you a pretty penny. If the room you are considering upgrading seems a bit dark for you, try switching the colors to a lighter, brighter and more radiant shade. This will not only cheer up the feel of the space, but also enlarge the appearance of the room.
is rather intuitive, and often overlooked, but your ceiling covers as much space as your floor. Yet despite this fact, most people choose to leave it plain white or at best, white with a popcorn texture. What they may not realize is that there are a variety of interesting techniques that can be used to add beauty, style, and personalization to this remote but important part of every room.
During construction is the easiest time to add such a fixture, but the homeowner may have opted not to do so for any number of reasons. The extra labor costs to do so wouldn't have been extreme, but construction costs are often much more than anticipated under good circumstances, so there may have been the need to avoid any extra expense. And the homeowner also might not have realized how beneficial such a light might be until after the construction was complete. Installing a ceiling light fixture once the home is built is a little more involved. So much so that many people never even consider doing it.
With so many reproduced tiles available it may get a little tricky to tell the vintage pieces from the newer models. Older ceiling tin is heavier than the newer version and has surfaces showing lots of rust, dents, chippy paint, rough scaly edges and sharp nail holes. Although reproductions are made to look like the real thing, you will notice that the new items are lighter and smoother and are simply too perfect. Also worth mentioning is that sometimes old tiles appear new when they are not. This can happen when a vintage piece is cleaned and refinished or an original tile is framed with an old door or window trim.
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.
