If you have spent a significant amount of time designing your bedroom or dining room, you have most likely selected the perfect color palette and accessories to highlight the room. One aspect that you may have overlooked, however, is the ceiling. While you might spend most of the time admiring the exquisite detail of the walls, furniture, and artwork, you do not want to look up at your ceiling to find that it stands out from the rest of the room like a sore thumb.

Ceiling medallions can be the perfect touch to complete a room. Many medallions are reproductions of historical designs. If you are a fan of historical architecture, why not decorate a room in your home with the design from a time period that you admire?

Many ceiling medallions are made from polyurethane that can be painted or glazed. Perhaps you want to stare at the sky while you fall asleep each night. If that is the case, you can paint your ceiling and the ceiling medallion with a starry night sky. During the day, you can admire the craftsmanship of the relief design.

Using Ceiling Medallions with Lighting Fixtures

A common use for ceiling medallions is as a base from which a lighting fixture can extend. If you have a chandelier in your home, the spot where it meets the ceiling may stand out because it is Spartan in comparison to the intricacy of the chandelier. You can, however, let the chandelier extend from a ceiling medallion so that the aesthetic is similar.
