Stucco ceilings, also known as popcorn or cottage cheese ceilings, were extremely popular between 1950 and 1980. The hasty removal of this eyesore has become a hot topic on DIY sites over the last few years.
As popcorn ceilings are being replaced by flat, smooth ceilings: doors are beginning to open and let in a great many possibilities for unique and pleasing ceilings.

However, colored ceilings are fantastic pops of color and open a room as they draw the eye upward.
Wood or metal accents are excellent ways of bringing texture and rustic or traditional feelings into a room.
Coffers also add a level of dimension and movement into the room without overwhelming viewers with multicolored patterns.

Our last and favorite example is the incredible fiber-optic lighting. Fiber-optics are small lights coming from one large hose and spread out throughout a ceiling’s area to create a starry-night-esque scene.
