We're always looking for new ways to add a little personality to our decor, whether that means we're paying close attention to ways we can add trendy colors to our space or renovating unused closets into something whimsical, like a bar.

One overlooked area? The ceiling. Too often, we move into houses or apartments with plain white ceilings and never give them a second thought, little realizing the huge potential they have for adding character to a room.

Transforming your space can be as easy as painting the ceiling. You can go with a light-colored neutral that's just enough to make the walls and trim look brighter or go for something bold, like fuschia or even black. It's amazing how much difference it can make, and even better? The ceiling is just one flat surface to paint instead of all four walls, and you don't have to worry about skirting around windows, doors and trim.

Check out some of our favorite painted ceiling inspiration to decide if it's right for your home.
