Creating a truly gorgeous and aesthetically pleasing room means covering every aspect of the interior design — including the ceiling. If you've never thought about the impact your ceiling might have on guests, consider some of the greatest and most revered buildings in the world — they usually have an incredible ceiling as well. That's why at homify, we believe you should take this into account when scouting or designing your next home.


Skeptical about whether a ceiling can truly transform a room and create an even more amazing space in your home? Let's take a look at some spectacular examples of ceilings that you need in your next redesign.

1. This exposed brick room looks so inviting and magical, but the layered ceiling adds a whole different dimension to the space. Tiered or layered ceilings can add height to a room.

4. Work with what you have. If you're redesigning an attic or top-floor room, emphasize any windows and utilize any light you may have to open up the space. But this shape can be fun and cozy as a bathroom, bedroom, or living area.

5. This wood ceiling looks extravagant but not overly so — it's a great touch to add a more natural feel to a room.

6. A glass vaulted ceiling is never a bad idea — how elegant is this design?
