The ceiling seems to be the forgotten space when it comes to decorating our rooms.  This blank canvas, when given life, can completely transform a room.   
Painting your ceiling a contrasting color or adding stripes is a cheap and cheerful way to add oomph to your living space.  HGTV has a great tutorial.  There is one step you must remember..... For clean lines, after you have taped your lines, roll your base color along the tape edged and allow to dry before painting your accent color.  This will give you crisp clean lines.   
Coffered ceilings are beautiful and add architectural interest.  If you put the Handy in Handyman and you're great with measures, then this may be the project for you.  Faux beams and trim ease the installation process.  A tutorial will help you decide if you want to take it on as a diy or call in a pro.   
Tin tiles are charming and historical.  Abundant in patterns and styles you are sure to find the one that's right for you. 
Wallpaper is a great way to bring pattern into a room and add interest.  Hanging wall paper can be tricky.  I suggest checking out this great tutorial for papering a ceiling on the diy Network

 Looking for something a little less traditional.  Check out this nail head trim!  I love this because you can do any pattern your heart desires and the installation is on the easier side.
 Use wood trim to create your pattern with more traditional style.
Sometimes simply adding a contrasting color can make all the difference.
The sky is the limit when it comes to decorating your ceiling.
