Things are looking up for homeowners wanting to apply one of 2018’s hottest interior trends. The interiors experts at have a fantastic range of wallpapers, perfect for creating your very own STATEMENT CEILING.

Ceiling tiles may throw up the notion of crumbling tiles in a neglected classroom corner, but ‘tired tiles’ have a new look for 2018.  A daring monochromatic wallpaper can transform a white living space from ordinary to incredible. Tiled-effect paper with ‘tribal’ or ‘Moroccan’ influence is really on-trend this year.

Raise the roof with a gorgeous and glamorous metallic ceiling. This beautifully bronzed paper with metallic tones will catch the light and illuminate darker rooms; dazzling in every sense of the word. Use subtle colours if the ceiling is low to stop the room from feeling top-heavy.

Exposed beams are on the wish list for many homeowners. For those who aren’t blessed with original features or the budget to install an all-wood ceiling, wallpaper is an affordable way to give the impression of real wood. There are all sorts of realistic looks from traditional timbers, distressed driftwood, gnarled and natural tree bark and woodblock surfaces. White with dark wood is a classic combination or for those craving colour, try subtle weathered blue or warmer red tones.

An alternative to wallpapering all surfaces is to take a wide panel of patterned wallpaper up one wall and across the ceiling to create a bedroom canopy. A vine-like flowing floral design without an obvious ‘right way up’ will work best.  Or get an edgier ‘industrial’ look with a 3D metallic trellis paper.

The key to this look is to ‘BE BOLD’ – make a statement. A word of warning though, if you’re going for a loud ceiling, keep walls plain and floors even plainer to avoid creating an overbearing ‘pattern sandwich’!
