5 Ways to Make the Most of Your Fifth Wall

March 2, 2018 12:57 am

(Family Features)--Redesigning your living space? Don't forget to look up! Reboot your ceiling with the following tips.

Start with a smooth canvas. This means eliminating any details like popcorn ceilings or other texturing that may appear dated and dingy.

Add some color. Bring character to the room by adding color to the ceiling that complements the traditional walls for a cohesive look. If you have eaves, dormers or other architectural elements, consider painting some and leaving others white for variety and added dimension.

Introduce natural light. When it comes from above, natural light brightens a room in a whole new way. An option like a Velux skylight is a sensible solution because it offers plenty of ways to customize the skylight to your specific space and functional needs.

Enhance with accessories. Both practical and attractive, blinds are a good idea for a skylight. They let you control the light, blocking out harsh rays during the heat of the day while letting the gentle evening light illuminate the room. In addition to choosing a style and color that complements the room décor, look for features such as remote-control operation and room-darkening textiles.

Get creative. Treating your ceiling like a wall opens virtually endless possibilities. If the space has unique architectural features, you can highlight them by adding special touches such as built-in shelves for extra storage or a new place to nurture lush house plants.
