Mark our words: 2018 is going to be the year of the statement ceiling. And thank goodness for that because statement ceilings are a stunning way to enhance any design. They add life, movement, and texture to a space without encroaching on square footage. Plus, they come in limitless patterns, designs, and colors, so every aesthetic can find its perfect fit. From graphic patterns, to colorful prints, to compelling textures, the following spaces prove why this trend is having a major moment.

1. Office Accent

With a little out of the box thinking, this ceiling takes a would-be ordinary office space and transforms it into a truly jaw-dropping design. The white walls are the perfect backdrop for this swanky geometric wallpaper. Get the look with a similar pattern by David Hicks.

Matching your ceiling to your bedding is an unexpected design decision that looks all kinds of amazing. It's particularly perfect if you're struggling to find cohesion in your space.

4. Unabashed Color

We love a space that's unafraid to play with color. Especially if that space involves a gorgeous blue ceiling like this one.

5. Black Beauty

Black might not be the first hue that comes to mind for the ceiling, but as you can see here, it's worth every bit of consideration. The matte black ceiling juxtaposed with the busy carpet is incredibly satisfying.

6. Dreamy Delight

Working with an all-white color palette? Punch it up with a dreamy floral mural on the ceiling.

7. Playful Patterns

The beauty of this statement being way up on the ceiling is that you can play with patterns that'd otherwise overwhelm a design if placed anywhere else. If you are a DIY painting master, you can paint stripes on your ceiling, but if you need a little help, Serena & Lily has an adorable stripe wallcovering that will do the trick.

8. Chic and Sophisticated

Matching your ceiling to the dominant hues in your space, like this sweet nursery, is a no-fail way to make this trend work.

9. Bold and Natural

You can pretty much never go wrong with organic accents. The natural stone fireplace paired with this dramatic black ceiling is simply breathtaking.

10. Unconventional Wood

Wood floors are wonderful to be sure. But as this space beautifully demonstrates, wood ceilings might be even better. Learn how to install your own wood plank ceiling from House Updated.

11. Beam Enhancements

Speaking of wood, how amazing are these painted ceiling beams? A statement ceiling needn't be all prints, patterns, and bold colors; textural details like these are magic-making too. Grab a can of paint and try painting your own ceiling beams. And if you don't have existing beams, no worries, you can make your own.

12. Unsightly to Striking

This space took an eyesore of a structural pipe and transformed it into a stunning industrial statement piece.

13. Good Cheer

This black-and-white kitchen would be just fine on its own. But adding a cheerful color to the ceiling uplifts the vibe to new stylish heights.
