Considering using different treatments on the walls? Stucco, wallpaper and other treatments are great for adding interest to walls, but you don’t have to stop with them there. You can continue your use of treatments up onto the ceilings. You can also incorporate a number of treatments into your ceilings. Some of these include: • Beams. This type of ceiling is created by installing long pieces of lumber across the width of the room. The beams may be left as is or painted. • Coffered. This type of ceiling is created by installing solid or hardwood beams and molding into a grid and paneling or painting the surface beneath. The recessed, grid-like panels add height, space and elegance to any room. • Faux finishes. This type of ceiling is created by applying any number of faux finishes to the surface. Colorwashing, ragging and stippling are just some of the faux finishes that can be used. • Tin. This type of ceiling is created by attaching tin panels to the surface. The panels may be left as is or painted. • Tray. This type of ceiling is created during construction with the sides angling or curving to another flat ceiling in one or more steps. It resembles an inverted tray and may include decorative molding for a dramatic flourish. • Trompe l’oeil. This type of ceiling is created by handpainting the surface. Various designs may be used. • Vaulted, arched or domed. These types of ceilings are created during the construction phase. They add drama and interest to a room. These are some of the number of treatments that can be applied to ceilings. Some are more applicable than others.
