Resplendent Ceiling Designs for Bedrooms

Puja Lalwani
Choosing ceiling designs for a bedroom is a tricky affair, as it is important to keep in mind that you are going to be waking up to that design every day! Here are some ceiling designs that provide the ultimate aesthetic appeal and have you looking forward to spending time in your cozy haven.
The ceiling is probably the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning. From the coziness of your bed, to wake up to something beautiful and perfect right above you, is what you would definitely love.
Creating and having the perfect ceiling design for your bedroom, then, becomes important.
There are a lot of styles and patterns that you would want to choose from. However, these depend on a lot of factors - the overall height of the room, the size and shape of the room, the theme the room has been designed around, and your preference in terms of the style and lighting that will be centered on the ceiling.

Classic Designs

Some of us like sticking to the classics, and drop ceilings and tray ceilings have been around long enough to be defined as classic ceiling designs. You can also use traditional light fixtures like bowl lamps or hanging lamps and fancy ceiling fans.

Rustic Designs

A theme among ceiling designs that people are loving these days is a rustic, earthy look. It is cozy, it is warm, and it gives a wonderful homely feel.
When designing a room and ceiling around this theme, keep in mind the elements that are most important are wood, and warm, yellow lights that provide a soft glow. The clean lines of a modern design may remain, but with the help of the aforementioned elements they are slightly subdued for a comfortable look.
For the ultimate rustic look, wooden beams are the most popular elements that add to the aesthetics of the ceiling. If the design allows, have these wooden beams continue to the floor on an empty wall. Use intersecting wooden beams running across the ceiling, and put up hanging lights at the intersections.
You may follow the horizontal pattern if you are trying to widen the appearance of the room, while the vertical pattern may be used to narrow down a very wide room. In some cases, on sloped ceilings, wooden beams are used to highlight the edges of each slope, on which different light fixtures are then put up.

Modern Designs

Modern, contemporary designs for a bedroom can range from absolutely anything to anything. Some people prefer keeping the ceiling devoid of any design and focusing on the design of the room.
Others prefer having a colored ceiling and keeping the rest of the room neutral. Another great design is to have mirrors on the ceiling. This ceiling can then be highlighted with the use of sleek light fixtures to complete the modern look.

How to Choose a Good Bedroom Ceiling Design

~The Room Design:

As per the theme of your room, decide your ceiling. If your room is designed on modern lines, ensure that the ceiling design is adapted to this style. Also, the basic structure of your room will decide whether a design is really necessary.
A room with too many angles and corners should be left alone, as the design will be lost in this shape. Or if your room has too many beams running along it, instead of covering it up with a ceiling design, highlight the beams with light fixtures to bring out their natural beauty.

~Height of the Room:

If you have a room with good ceiling height, there is no harm in having a fancy ceiling design that caters to your taste. However, if the ceiling is low height, it is better to avoid having a ceiling altogether. In such a case, the lighter the ceiling, the easier it will be to relax in the room.

~Personal Preference:

This is extremely important while choosing a ceiling design. Do you like it light and simple or dynamic and bright? Don't get your ceiling done up just because your neighbor is getting one and it is 'en vogue'. If your room needs an additional design element, then go for it.

Some Other Ceiling Designs

Ceiling should not be overbearing. It should enhance the aesthetic appeal of a room, not overpower it. This is particularly true for bedrooms as they can weigh down on you if they are too heavy, or add to the coziness if they are designed well. Keep it simple, comfortable, so that you can make the most of all the relaxation your beautiful room has to offer.
