How the Ceiling Became the Fifth Wall

Often the ceiling is overlooked when designing a room in the home. Painted white and then forgotten, the ceiling hasn’t been living up to its full potential, until now. Interior designers have been taking notice of the ceiling of late and have even decided to give it its due, dubbing it “the fifth wall.” One of the latest trends in interior design is wallpapering the ceiling to draw the eyes up.

Take a look at some of our favorite examples of this trend and see for yourself why wallpaper on the ceiling is here to stay.

We also love the look of wallpapering eaves. Both stripe and toile paper work best to unify the angles in the ceiling.

Wallpapering the ceiling also helps create interest as well as height in a smaller room such as in this powder room.

Be advised, adding wallpaper to your ceiling can be challenging, but it is by far the most interesting thing we’ve come across in a long time. Please contact DecoratorsBest to help you choose just the right paper to outfit your ceiling.
