remove popcorn ceilings in Orlando to try statement ceilingsIf you’ve browsed through any home design blogs or social media – or even our blog on our sister site – you might have gotten the hint that statement walls are popular in interior design. Many contemporary designers choose to paint one focal wall in a vibrant, contrasting color, often working in patterns or even wallpaper, to stand out amongst the rest. While they’re still making waves, we’re here to tell you that the latest and greatest trend is statement ceilings.

The ceiling is a virtually new playground for interior designers. As contractors move away from ugly popcorn and improve their equipment and techniques to create smooth ceilings, more opportunities for design greatness abound. Here are 3 ways to tap into the statement ceiling trend:

 

  • Coffered ceilings are nothing new – in fact, they’ve been making classic silhouettes in stately houses for decades. However, more designers are embracing patterns in coffered ceilings, painting the blank spaces between beams with a bright color or even layering on the wallpaper. This modern update on a classic style is one of our favorite ways to bring attention to a beautiful ceiling.
  • Shiplap and wood panels are also making an appearance on ceilings across the country. Known for their ease of installation, organic paneling lends an air of beachside breeziness to any home. While you don’t need a smooth ceiling to install wood beams, removing popcorn before you install gives you more options to play with patterns and colors.
  • Painting the ceiling has come in vogue, and is one of the easiest ways to totally change the look of your home’s interior. Painting the ceiling is one treatment you definitely can’t do with popcorn texture. Painting popcorn is likely to knock off some of the texture, and makes it much more difficult to remove if you ever change your mind.

 

If you’re ready to try something new in your home, the first step is to get those popcorn ceilings removed. When you work with a team of professionals, your ceiling will be retextured and ready to paint as soon as the project is done.
