To draw the eye upwards, have a dark ceiling. But don’t dark ceilings make the room look dark? For small low ceiling rooms, best to stay away from dark tones on the ceiling because it can make the room feel cramped. However, having light walls or furniture gives the room a bolder sophisticated statement. Dark ceilings accentuate cornices and can even be used to cover up a mess. Africote has a wide range of darker hues to consider.

Cemcrete has a wide range of products for ceiling finishes.

Decorated Ceilings

Decorated ceilings with artwork were mostly used in religious buildings but today the trend is gaining momentum in homes and hotels. Decorated ceilings with bright colours and simple designs create a harmonious environment in the room.
