22 Creative Ceiling Ideas that Will ‘Wow’ You as You Look Up

As an interior design publisher, I’m always on the lookout for creative ways to make a space feel more unique, elevated, and visually interesting.

One often overlooked area that offers tons of design potential is the ceiling.

Far too many homes and buildings settle for bland, builder-grade ceilings that fade into the background. But the ceiling is a prime opportunity to make a real statement and draw the eye upwards for a truly wow-worthy effect.

Today I’ll share some of my favorite creative ceiling ideas that will transform any room from drab to fab the moment you glance overhead.

From stunning architectural details to unexpected paint treatments and hanging installations, prepare to have your perspective shifted – in the best way possible – as you look up.
