The kitchen ceiling may seem like an afterthought when it comes to design consideration, but this often neglected space offers a rare chance to inject personality and flair into your cooking area. From elegant coffered ceilings to vaulted vaulted or glass ceilings – here are some creative kitchen ceiling ideas to help create stunning spaces that are both beautiful and functional!
Donning your ceiling with an eye-catching color can instantly transform a space. Marianne Shillingford, Dulux’s Creative Director notes: “Adding bold hues can create focal points and drama that draw the eye upwards; additionally it can help brighten up darker kitchens or balance out monochromatic schemes.”
To add subtle depth, try creating a faux ceiling instead. Use wood trim to frame rectangular or circular ceilings before adding canned lighting for an elegant appearance. Or opt for more organic look by painting ceiling beams in contrasting hues – as in this Scandi-inspired kitchen where dark stained beams complement monochromatic flooring and white walls for an inviting atmosphere.
A vaulted ceiling creates an airy and bright feel in any space, making it the ideal way to add visual interest. Becca Interiors’ kitchen features one in an earthy green hue which looks beautiful against its wooden island and cabinets. A vaulted ceiling also makes an elegant light fixture like this dramatic chandelier even more noticeable.
Tray ceilings offer another creative spin on false ceilings that adds visual expansion while adding elegance. To make your tray ceiling pop even more, use wooden trim along its outer edges before installing a decorative light fixture for a more formal effect.
If your kitchen features natural beams, utilize them by cladding the ceiling with wooden panels like this charming kitchen from Cathie Hong Interiors. While keeping with a more muted tone helps the panels blend into their surroundings more seamlessly, bolder hues may create more vibrancy for an eye-catching design aesthetic.
Add even more dazzling effects with a fiber optic ceiling for a truly captivating effect. This creative solution combines twinkling stars with contemporary lighting for a truly unforgettable experience that is sure to leave everyone talking!
Stencilling ceilings is an economical yet eye-catching DIY kitchen ceiling idea, perfect for homeowners seeking to add personalized flair without undertaking major renovation. Stencilled ceilings also create the illusion of vaulted or coffered ceilings while being simple and straightforward to install.
