25 Wallpaper Ceiling Ideas For A Wow Effect
Making use of ceilings is a great way to add details and layers into an interior, and currently it’s a trend. Who wants a usual ceiling when you can cover it with plywood, wood and even wallpaper? Wallpaper ceilings can bring unique patterns and layers to an interior and realizing such a project won’t take much time. But before going for such a ceiling you need to know some things.
Choose the right type of wallpaper. If you think that you may tire of the look you choose, opt for removable wallpaper. Removing traditional wallpaper from the wall is hard enough; on the ceiling, it can be back-breaking work.
Pick color and pattern carefully. Darker tones on the ceiling tend to weigh down a room—desirable if you’re looking to achieve a cozier feel. On the flip side, lighter colors can make smaller rooms feel larger, and metallics can help reflect light in cramped spaces. You’ll also need to choose between a small- or large-scale motif. Larger-scale patterns, with a repeat of 12 inches or more, can be easier on the eye. However, smaller-scale patterns disguise installation misalignments easier, which may be preferable if you’re DIYing wallpaper for the first time.

Make sure your ceiling is conducive to wallpapering. There’s some significant prep work required before putting up wallpaper. First, repair any cracks or imperfections in the ceiling with spackle or joint compound, then sand the area smooth with a fine-grit sandpaper. Remove any light fixtures or air vents (make sure to disconnect the electricity first). Clean the ceiling, using a duster on a long extension pole or a shop vacuum with a soft brush attachment to remove all initial dust; go over the ceiling a second time with a rag or tack cloth to touch up. Next, prime the ceiling. Use a specialty primer made specifically for wallpaper application and let it dry for at least 48 hours (follow the manufacturer’s specific instructions). This will help prevent damage to your walls down the line when the wallpaper is eventually removed.
