Denver Kitchen Remodeling: Ceiling Designs For Your Remodel


August 2, 2017

Homeowners planning a kitchen remodeling project in their Denver home may focus on choosing the right flooring, cabinetry, and countertops, but they often forget one minor detail: the ceiling! Instead of leaving the ceiling as is, consider incorporating one of these unique designs into your remodel:

Wood Beams

There’s no better way to make a kitchen feel warm and inviting than by adding wood beams to the ceiling. Homeowners who want to pull off a rustic or farmhouse look in their kitchen will love this ceiling design. However, other homeowners like the idea of wood beams, but don’t want their kitchen to be covered in wood from floor to ceiling. If you’re part of this group, you can always paint the wood beams a different color to differentiate them from the rest of the wood. Read these 5 tips when decorating exposed ceiling support beams.

Decorative Tiles

If you chose trendy materials such as white marble and gray cabinets, it’s possible that your kitchen will end up looking very similar to a lot of other kitchens. But, you can still make yours stand out by adding decorative tiles to the ceiling. This works especially well in kitchens that mainly feature neutral colors. Instead of incorporating color into the counters or appliances, you can use color on the ceiling. It also works wonders in kitchens that are on the small side. To make the room appear larger, choose tiles that are two to three shades lighter than the color on the walls.

To really impress your guests, add metallic tin tiles to your ceiling. Using tin tiles is an inexpensive way to add a “wow” factor to your kitchen.

Coffered Ceilings

To create a coffered ceiling, your contractor will install beams in a grid pattern and then paint the beams and the ceiling nearly identical colors. By painting them slightly different shades of the same color, the contractor can create more depth. The end result is a textured and beautiful ceiling that will immediately grab your guests’ attention and draw their eyes upwards. This is a versatile design that will work well in any type of kitchen, plus it’s classic, so it will stand the test of time.

Tray Ceilings

Tray ceilings are flat with the exception of the center, which is raised by 10-12 inches. Because the center of the room will have taller ceilings, the entire room looks more open and airy. Tray ceilings will work in any type of kitchen, but if you want to make it look more formal, consider hanging an elegant chandelier from the center of the elevated area.
