Designing your new room starts with some form of inspiration. Maybe it's a color swatch, or a picture, a fabric, or even a pillow. Or maybe the room itself provides the inspiration. Once you have that piece, you can start to create your vision around it.

To help you visualize how a decorative ceiling would fit into your room design, we've created a series of articles identified by specific ceiling topics: General Design, Wood-Look Ceiling, Metal Ceiling, Colored Ceiling TIles, and Ceilings by Room.

Take a look - and good luck!
