9 Ways to Add Interest to Your Ceilings

Ceilings offer wonderful opportunities for adding character and charm to a room.  Below we have highlighted a number of different styles of ceiling treatments, from mountain rustic to contemporary to traditional.  A ceiling can make a contemporary space feel more rustic and a boring space feel more interesting.  A ceiling treatment can add color to a space, bring the height down visually and add textural interest.  There is really no limit to what you can do with ceiling treatments.  Take a look at the nine great ideas from Home on the Range  below and let us know which ones you like the best and why.  If you have a favorite ceiling design, add it to your comment so all of our readers can see it!
