Considerations When Choosing a Ceiling Rose

Ceiling roses are decorative elements attached to the ceiling from which a light fitting is suspended. They can transform the look of a space, adding an elegant feature to the room. Once a common feature, they fell out of fashion but are now popular again and come in a wide range of styles, from traditional to modern designs. If you are looking to add this decorative feature to your room, there are two main points to consider to ensure the choice is right.

When considering the style of any new addition to a room, it is vital to look at the existing features and decor in the room. If you have a period property with existing coving or cornicing, you may wish to opt for a traditional plaster style and should be able to match to the design or find a rose to complement it.

New houses are being built quicker than ever before, but these modern builds often lack the features of older properties. Ceiling roses are a perfect addition to a room, and a modern home with plain or no coving means you can choose any kind of design without needing to match to an existing style. But you should still consider your decoration, such as any wallpaper, and other features in the room such as furniture and fireplaces. You do not want a stark contrast between a very modern ceiling rose and traditional features or furniture.


An important aspect to consider is the size to ensure the rose is in proportion to the dimensions of the room. Think about the height of the ceilings as well as the room measurements. Generally, rooms with higher ceilings can take larger and more ornate styles, whereas rooms with a standard height or lower ceiling are usually more suited to smaller modern styles, such as some of those found at As well as considering the size and height of the room, ceiling roses should be suited to the light which will be suspended from them, and you should consider your furniture in the room.

If you consider the above points, you should be able to find the perfect style for your personal taste and your home decor so you can make a feature of the light and really enhance the whole room.
