Let’s be honest, when considering your ideal kitchen, you’re probably not going to be drawn to the ceiling at first. This aspect of your interior is an afterthought for many, and it’s easy to see why. The fact that it’s not on eye level leaves us guilty of an “out of sight, out of mind” approach, and means that kitchen units and flooring often steal the show when it comes to a grand kitchen design. But why should this be the case? The ceiling can prove to offer just as much as the rest of the room!

If like so many, you’re struggling on where to start when it comes to your kitchen ceiling, let the experts at Kitchen Warehouse help. We have developed quite the knack for understanding the importance of the ceiling, and have some excellent ideas up our sleeve that you can implement in your own home.

Beams might have you beaming!

Based in a rural area and want to bring some of the surrounding nature into your home? Exposed beams are a fantastic way of doing so. They present a striking, unique look that is sure to add a whole new dimension to your kitchen space, wowing residents and visitors alike for years to come!

They are often popular in home conversions, which more and more people are opting for these days. Perhaps you have an old building or a barn and want to keep some of its heritage present whilst in the kitchen or want to keep your structure on show giving you a sense of the inner workings of your property.

Regardless of your motive for doing so, exposed beams are a fantastic option as part of your kitchen ceiling ideas. Although they may be challenging to install based on your existing structure, you will always be able to achieve your vision with the help of an expert.

Lighting is crucial

We could go on and on about the vast array of lighting options available when it comes to decorating your ceiling. But the fact of the matter is, you should place great importance on your choice of lighting when deciding on kitchen design ideas.

Depending on whether you have a contemporary kitchen, a traditional one, or a mix of the two, there are many lighting options out there to suit your tastes. Whether you fancy something bold and dramatic to be in keeping with the rest of your room or something more understated to keep the emphasis on kitchen doors and worktops.

There is a huge variety to choose from, so don’t feel like you’re limited to a certain colour or style when thinking of kitchen ideas for your new or existing space.

Decided on a colour?

As with the rest of your kitchen, there’s no limit on the number of colours at your disposal to paint your ceiling. The same recommendations apply with your ceiling, with lighter colours giving the illusion of a bigger space, whilst darker colours are suggested for larger kitchens or high ceilings in which space isn’t an issue.

Here at Kitchen Warehouse, we often see customers with light blue ceilings in their kitchen. You can’t go wrong with this approach, mirroring the sky outdoors and ultimately creating an airier and more spacious place to cook and enjoy family time.

Whichever colour you decide on for your ceiling, consider it carefully, as it often sets the tone for the rest of the room located below.

Many finishes to choose from

Finally, be sure to get creative with your kitchen ceiling design if you feel like it’s a little worn out and bland! There are many unique options out there to provide a stylish and trendy addition to your kitchen design. Finishes include bare, wood, tiling, beadboard and plaster, all of which have a home in a modern kitchen. No matter the vibe you’re going for, whether this is urban or farmhouse, make sure you do your research and discover what kind of finish perfectly fits your vision of a dream kitchen.
