A false ceiling in your bedroom can significantly improve the aesthetics as well as the functionality of your room. When designing the ceiling, you can relocate lighting points, reduce noise levels, hide unsightly beams or conceal wiring. We’ve put together some lovely false ceiling designs for bedroom that you’d love to wake up to in the morning—here you go:
Add Rustic Charm and Warmth with Wooden Rafters
If you’re lucky enough to have a sloping roof in your bedroom, you can add definition and emphasize the slope with polished wooden beams. If you’re working on a budget, it’s easy to circumvent the cost of real wood by using boxed plywood covered with a paper-thin veneer.
Minimalist and Modern False Ceiling
We love this uncluttered, contemporary bedroom that uses iron beams and rafters to provide structure to the tall lean-to roof. The under board below the ceiling is painted the same white as the exposed brick walls, adding to the rustic country charm.
Wouldn’t you love to wake up to the first rays of the sun slanting across your bed every morning? These gorgeous skylights make it possible. And we must say— the rest of this lovely bedroom is pretty impressive, too!
Suspended Tray Ceiling
This elegant master bedroom, done up in shades of brown and gold, is the last word in luxury; and the ceiling is highlighted by a suspended rectangle with the glow of hidden lights all around.
False Ceiling with Ceiling Fans
It’s sometimes hard to incorporate a ceiling fan in the design of your false ceiling, but here’s an example of how it can be done. Two fans are worked into the design of this modern ceiling that has black panel inserts.
Here’s a similar design, but designed for a smaller space with only one ceiling fan. Here, spotlights on either side are surface mounted within a black square pedestal.
Waves Beneath your Window
Now, this is what heaven must look like. Sleep under sloping skylights set in the ceiling, with the rolling waves crashing beneath your window. Nothing short of paradise on earth.
To the Manor Born
This aristocratic bedroom spells understated elegance, with the wooden furniture and floor uplifted by the simple false ceiling design that features cove lighting. All the walls and ceiling are pure white, enhancing the richness of the wood underfoot.
Simple and stylish, this loft bedroom uses raw industrial elements and sustainable recycled pine to create comfort at a low cost. The ceiling and walls are of poured concrete, neatly outlined using L-shaped metal girders.
Sleep Below the Stars
A wooden ceiling panel that folds over the wall behind the bed, cleverly perforated and backlit to resemble the night sky. Now you can sleep under the stars in the comfort of your bedroom.
Old World Charm
Here’s a pretty country-style wooden ceiling that can be recreated using plywood and veneer, or one-side board, at a fraction of the cost without compromising on the aesthetics.
Go with Industrial False Ceiling
Distressed paint on walls, cement floors and a vaulted concrete ceiling are the highlights of this industrial styled bedroom, done up in a palette of grey, blue and brown. The antique look is reinforced by adding an old-world radio, a metal clock on the wall and old-style metal droplights.
Jazz it up with Mirrors
For those who like it glitzy, this folded reflective ceiling is completely mirrored and adds an unexpected dimension to this small bedroom. Thoughtful positioning of wall lights ensures that the play of light reflects on the ceiling.
The ceiling plays an important part of the décor of your room, and while you should certainly not go over the top with your ceiling designs, these ideas are sure to have inspired you to do up your own home.
