About Me

remodeling to acommodate an elderly loved one

When I invited my mother to come and live with my family, we had to make some changes to accommodate her. The changes that needed to be made were all within reason and were all required so that she could get around with her walker and eventually a wheelchair if need be. I hired a remodeling contractor to assist us with making the changes. I learned a lot while discussing what needed to be done and what it would take to get it complete. I created this blog with the hopes of helping other families that are considering making the same changes in their homes.

Bathroom Ceiling Ideas To Consider For Your Bathroom Remodeling Project

Many homeowners tend to give their ceilings less consideration during a bathroom remodeling exercise, not knowing how important the ceiling is in the overall bathroom look. 

During a bathroom remodeling, what you do with the ceiling determines how well the walls, the interior décor, and the ceiling will go together. You don't want to be staring at an ugly ceiling full of molds and mildews as you relax in a beautiful bathtub surrounded by glowing walls.

There are numerous ceiling ideas to consider for a bathroom remodeling project, but here are a few outstanding ones that you can quickly implement.

Use a Chandelier

Introducing a chandelier into your bathroom's ceiling space is all about improving the lighting inside your bathroom, but doing so in style. A chandelier will be great for creating a focal point in your bathroom once installed. Whether you want to fix it over your bathtub or the shower space, you can always achieve a desirable display.

What's more, chandeliers come in various shapes, sizes, and materials, which allows you to pick a befitting choice for your bathroom décor style. You can choose to use one central chandelier or more depending on the size of your bathroom or the size of the chandelier you have picked.

Consider Color Blocking

A plain white ceiling might be great for your ceiling, but a colored one can work miracles inside your bathroom space. When choosing colors, avoid dark options for your walls and ceiling, as these may make your bathroom feel oppressive. You can use standard colors like grey, amber, or blush to achieve a perfect color block for your ceiling and bathroom walls.

When painting your favorite color, ensure you choose a specialist bathroom paint containing the anti-mold formula to resist the growth and development of molds. You don't want your ceiling to start peeling and giving way to unsightly mold a short time after painting.

Use Wood Ceiling

If you're living in a home with wooden beams exposed, you can tap into the advantage of creating a cottage or rustic bathroom design using wood-paneled ceilings and beams. Adding faux wooden beams could be an excellent wooden ceiling idea but can be costly and challenging to pull off. 

You can have a specialist work on the ceiling, as they'll help pick the best wood and fitting ideas for your bathroom. Alternatively, if you're constrained on budget, you can choose to paint your existing ceiling or install special ceiling panels or tiles to create a picture of the wood ceiling.
