Another way to make the ceiling seem higher or lower is with molding. You can paint molding the same color as the ceiling to make the room smaller, and paint it the same color as the walls, to make the room seem larger, and the ceiling further away. Ceilings are a large and important feature in a space, and should not be ignored just because they are remote, and difficult to reach. By using contrast, unity, and color, it is possible to use the ceiling to add a whole new level to your decorative designs.
Any of the ideas discussed above will add a little personality to your ceilings. You have contemporary, rustic, and other decorating styles to choose from. In fact you could go for a totally Victorian look with just a few cornices running along your ceiling. You will most likely have to consult a professional to get a majority of the work done with perfection and style, especially if you choose a more complicated ceiling look.
Of course, any time you work with wiring of any type you have to cut the power for safety, so you might think, given that, this is a job you can do on your own. But once the power comes back on, if you haven't installed the ceiling light fitting correctly, you can have a short, a blow-out or worse, a fire. It's not worth the risk to do this job yourself.
Other crafters have had great success selling frames made out of old tiles and inserting a canvas with florals and other images. While many current artists are discovering a variety of ways to use old ceiling tins and other salvage materials, the Pennsylvania Dutch have crafted objects from tin for a very long time. For example, they are noted for creating barn stars out of old tin roof material. Many stores specializing in country gifts sell reproduction stars.
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.
