Welcome back for round three of this year’s One Room Challenge. If you missed the previous weeks, let me quickly catch you up by saying that I am doing a renovation of my dining room and turning it into a dining/home office. This week’s project is to install a chevron plank ceiling. But not just any planked ceiling. This one is going inside my already beautiful tray ceiling.
Most of us are familiar with the sheetrock repair kits that are sold in the big box stores, and many of us have made good use of these for repairing holes in a wall. But what about when we have a hole in the ceiling? You may be wondering exactly how you are suppose to fix that. Well, I am here to help you repair ceiling sheetrock holes.
Designing a closet along a slanted ceiling can present a challenge. This is especially true if the builder has thrown rods and shelving up in a less than optimized location. However, with a bit of reimagining, most sloped ceiling closets can be turned into an efficient storage space.
Wallpaper – Oh, the Horror!
Over the last few years, wallpaper has been making a comeback. Newer textures and more modern designs are available to bring your rooms into the 21st century. However, many people still suffer from the horrors brought about by wallpaper from the 20th century. Removal was difficult, and as a result unattractive prints remained on walls well past their prime. But you need not suffer from wallpapering PTSD. With the correct plan, it can provide nice detailing to an otherwise lackluster room.
The ceiling is hardly something that a person notices when they walk into a room, at least not consciously. However, whether you notice it or not, a ceiling does impact the way that you perceive a room – as demonstrated in another one of my articles, “The 5th Wall.” High ceilings make a room feel open and spacious. While, a low ceiling can either create a cozy feel, or a closed in feel. It all depends on how the rest of the room flows into the ceiling. So, l thought I would share with you how to create the illusion of high ceilings.
