First you must decide whether your room is suitable for such a decoration. Stripes on the ceiling is not something you can delete easily. So, make sure the rest of your furnishings will fit to the decoration. Of course you do not want to create a negative impression and poor mixture of styles and colors. It would be best to let a professional craftsman paint your top, but you can also paint them by yourself, if you are careful.

Stripes on the ceiling would look good in rooms such as bedroom, bathroom or nursery. They might be a little too colorful for the living room and too much for the kitchen. The corridor could benefit from such a spectacular design detail. If the room is small and you want to make it seems higher, stripes are a good idea. If the room is large and spacious, a striped blanket would make it look smaller. Therefore, this method is not suitable for the living room.

Before you begin, you must also make a decision on the color palette. The most common combinations are black and white or white and pastel shades. Then decide where would begin the strips. For example, you can paint a few stripes of the wall and then continue on to the top. You can also paint from the center towards the walls.

For pitched ceiling ideas the width of the stripes is different. It all depends on the effect you want to create. Thin raster have a greater impact on the eyes, while wide stripes are more suitable for children because they are more relaxing. Make sure that they have the same dimensions and you have delineated the areas with tape. Remember to be creative and feel free to improvise and play with the design. It is important to choose those colors that you like, and to comply with the lighting fixtures or other ceiling decorations.
