3 Drop Ceiling Design Ideas for Your Home

3 Drop Ceiling Design Ideas for Your Home

Create your ideal home with drop ceiling ideas like metal, coffers, and other decorative options.

These ceiling design ideas show that whatever look or style you want, you can achieve it effortlessly with decorative ceilings. 

1) Modern Formality

Black coffered ceilings are a look that works well in contemporary decor. When used in a suspended ceiling system, the edge detail of these 24" X 24" ceiling tiles allows the grid to disappear so that nothing interferes with the dramatic style.

Pair with black touches; even going as far as reverse trim. Black window and door trim, with other nods to the color, like a fire surround, can pack a punch without feeling like a fun house. In the photo above, the windows keep things bright. However, in spaces without much natural light, you can create a moody den by adding heavy textures with wooden accents. 


2) Natural Elements 

When you are decorating with natural elements, texture is everything. A delicately embossed pattern on a drop ceiling is an idea that creates a visual rhythm in the room that leads the eye from one design element to another. Mix in natural woods, leaves, and greenery. Weaving in wicker, durable wool or sisal rugs, and knitted blankets adds the layers that balance out the space to keep it from feeling too matchy-matchy.


3) Vintage Charm

Whether you want to go bold with twirling patterns in striking copper or keep it toned down with geometrics in shining white and steel, metal ceilings create an antique vibe in a surprisingly modern way. In the room below, copper ceilings tie everything together - from the sparkling chandelier to the Chesterfield sofa, even the metallic accents. If a wall-to-wall install feels overwhelming, try isolating the decorative metal ceilings above a kitchen island as a highlight to break up the space.

Beautiful drop ceiling ideas for a fresh, new look. All you need is the vision and a decorative ceiling to be the crowning jewel.
