A ceiling is as integral part of the room as the wall and the flooring. Till recently, the ceilings were kept pretty simple and subtle. They were not given the due recognition they deserved. But, with the changing times and the advent of new technology and creative sensibilities, a ceiling is now considered an important part of the whole décor. To inspire you further, homify brings you some breathtaking ceiling designs that will make your house visually adept and inspiring for others as well.

A stunning design that makes use of strategic patterns, pretty lighting and a sassy chandelier constitutes this false ceiling. The wooden cut work design on two slender glass panels not only looks trendy, but also allows maximum inflow of light.

A stunning crystal chandelier further enhances the look.


Who says ceiling designs are only essential in living areas and bedrooms? This particular ceiling has been designed to synchronize with the interiors of a beautiful home theatre.

Keeping in mind the home theatre aspect, effective lighting has been provided along the length of the square. A beautiful pair of rectangular chandeliers is also placed to provide the maximum brightness.


This design is entirely different from the others as it incorporates the use of metallic beams and supports as compared to the conventional wood. The ceiling is in line with the whole industrial theme and strikes the perfect chord with the washed sofa set and metallic stairs. Even the lighting is worth a mention as it does not employ the use of conventional chandeliers, instead uses small statement lighting just like in factories and warehouses for a finished effect.


Chequered floors have been prevalent since ages, how about creating the same effect on the ceiling! Yes, this particular design recreates the floor magic on the ceiling using the false ceiling technology. With the apt use of LED lamps and concealed lighting, this design keeps the entire room illuminated in such a way that it remains the exact centre of attraction every time someone enters this room. This design can even be used in smaller rooms as it gives an illusion of space.

The beautiful dropping lights in the centre further deepen the sunken effect of the area and look absolutely mesmerizing in the dark. Apart from the circular segment, the entire ceiling is deigned to provide a subtle contrast to the bright wall décor.
