There is a misconception that ceiling domes are strictly suitable for traditional decor. The design history proves that ceiling domes may be successfully used in traditional and contemporary interiors alike. Ceiling domes with clean lines may be incorporated in modern or contemporary style – even in industrial lofts. To accentuate the modern feeling, contemporary lighting fixture can be placed inside the ceiling dome. In traditional interiors, ceiling domes with ornamental details are more suitable. For example, the California ceiling dome has beautiful details and may be used with or without a lighting fixture. Placing a chandelier in the center of this ceiling dome is an easy way of making the ceiling and the light look more royal and majestic.
A great way to make an original lighting source is to utilize ceiling domes with lighting – such as the Siena Ceiling Domes with Lighting Cove – which comes in various sizes to fit the different ceiling requirements which makes it a flexible choice for any ceiling design. It is a classic ceiling dome that could easily fit into any decor.
All ceiling domes come primed ready for final finishing – painting, highlighting, or applying faux finishes have been the most popular treatments of the ceiling domes. Not every home an handle the grandeur of the Rococo style and pallet of prink-while and blue-white. You would rarely find painted images such as cherubs or beautiful and voluminous clouds in a typical American home. The type of finish on ceiling domes is determined by how much light is in that particular area, the temperature of the environment, and of course the style of the interior.
