Ceilings & Molding

Okay. You don't have to make your ceiling this elaborate! But if you picture this massive room
done in ivory and pale colors, it would feel very cold and stiff. The gold molding and painted walls
and ceiling make you feel as though you have been wrapped up in luxury.

The Dilemma of the White Ceiling

Think outside of the box, color outside of the lines and let your imagination go. The ceiling in the Dining Room should be rich and make your guest feel that they are surrounded in warmth. White ceilings don't generally make people feel that way. If you like white ceilings, that's wonderful and there is certainly nothing wrong with them, however, don't feel that you have no choice in the matter. They don't have to be white!

Unfortunately, we now think of white as the only color to paint the ceiling, however, this thinking comes from long ago when ceilings were very low and rooms didn't have many windows. Back then, the low ceilings were painted white to give the room more visual height and to reflect more light into the room. We don't have to do that now, since most of us have ceilings that are at least 8' tall and if we don't get much natural daylight, we can add more lighting to the room. Consider some of the ceiling options below and have some fun!

  • Paint the ceiling in one of the Dining rooms accent colors. It can be bold and dark or even a discreet light beige.
  • If you have a formal Dining Room, paint the ceiling in a gilt gold or silver paint.
  • Apply a metal tin look to your ceiling. New metal tiles are now being manufactured and can be painted in any color you choose.
  • Add molding. You can add crown molding around the room, a medallion around the chandelier, or, if you have a high ceiling, apply large molding to give a paneled look.
  • Give the ceiling a wash of color, much as you would on the walls. Any paint treatment that you consider for the walls, would be appropriate for the ceiling as well.
  • If you can't afford a muralist to come in and paint a mural on your ceiling, add decals, which from the floor will look like they are painted on. One great look is to paint the ceiling to look like a sky - very soft blue with white clouds, then add decals in the corner of angels, etc. Very chic!

Wall Molding & Architectural Accents

If you feel that your Dining Room lacks architectural interest, then rethink the walls and trim. Even if the builder didn't add much in the way of moldings and trim, there is no reason why you can't now. The choices are endless and I am going to give you the link to a wonderful molding web site. Just going through their site will give you dozens of ideas that you can use. The company is called Architectural Products by Outwater and their web site is They are ceiling medallions, ceiling tiles, chair rails, columns, corbels, cornice moldings, wall and ceiling appliqué's, drapery brackets, finials, keystones, mantels, niches and a lot more.

This room has exquisite molding and details.
