Ceil a Statement

Filed on August 27, 2020

Say goodbye to traditional white ceilings and create a striking interior with a wallpapered ceiling by Sedar Global

Forget accent walls - statement ceilings are the new hot interior trend. The ceiling rarely plays the starring role in a room. It is often forgotten, or simply given a simple whitewash. However, according to wallpaper specialists Sedar Global, the fifth wall is becoming more mainstream. Nahel Selo Creative Director at Sedar Global, comments: "With people spending more time in the home than ever before, wallpapered ceilings are becoming a popular option for a quick and cost-effective room makeover. Offering an incredible and underrated design element that can instantly add colour, personality, and art to your space."

Famous for its bespoke made to fit services and use of materials and wallpapers from some of the finest factories across the globe Creative Director Nahel Selo gives his do's and don'ts to work this trend. With over 11 brands to shop online or in store shoppers can select unique fabrics for curtain, blind and pillow design as well as wallpaper collections from renowned names including Versace, Jannelli & Volpi, Missoni Home, Armani/Casa and Swarvoski.

Don't: Be Afraid To Experiment In A Small Space

Unlock the full potential of a room - the ceiling is a surface that is often overlooked and using ceiling wallpaper is a great way to create a feature small space.  Selo says: "When highlighted with wallpaper the eye is drawn upward and is a great interior trick to make the most of forgotten interior spaces in the home - especially bathrooms and hallways. Turning them into a memorable feature without making the space feel too busy or less spacious."

Do: Stick With Your Colour Scheme

If you are pairing a ceiling wallpaper with whitewashed walls it is the perfect opportunity to transform a bland space, adding character and style through introducing a bold paper. Selo suggests: "In general, you want to be sure not to choose another colour outside of your scheme if you already have 2-3 colours in the space. Or for a real contemporary finish use a ceiling wallpaper in a block colour and no pattern tying in the same colour for chairs and sofa whilst keeping walls and floors stripped back, paired with uncluttered and curated accessories"

 Don't: Shy Away From Pattern

Ceilings are a great way to inject some energy and use patterns in a less obvious way. If you decide to go with more than one pattern in the room and work a very on trend kitsch interior, be sure to vary the scales so that they balance each other out. Selo comments: "Whilst our metallic papers and geometric 3D effect papers can be used to give the illusion of more space. We also offer some beautiful intricate themed prints and clever design solutions including subtle yet stylistic marble or tiled effect papers that when teamed with timeless flooring offer an extremely elegant and luxurious finish."

Don't: Wing It

Wallpapering a ceiling is not a job you want to do twice if you can help it. If you're redoing the entire room, find and review samples of your paint and wallpaper along with the furniture, flooring and more. A trend best left to the professionals for installation.

Do: Play With Your Architectural Details

If your room already has an incredible ceiling, like great coffered details or an amazing arch, don't stop there! You can make it truly show-stopping with texture or colour. Adding wallpaper is a playful and current approach to a traditional coffered ceiling and also a practical way to cover up ceiling cracks or imperfections that may naturally occur over time.
