How To Order Standard or Premium Painted Decorative Ceilings
Our painted decorative ceilings are available in Standard and Premium Faux Finishes. Please visit the Ceiling Finishes Page to see our Standard Finishes.
- A Standard Finish is any of finishes on our Ceiling Finishes Page
- A Premium Finish is a custom color palette containing up to nine (9) colors from a nationally available paint manufacturer
- Premium Finishes include a complimentary phone and email consultation with our Artist/Designer to create your custom color palette. You will receive a sample showing your custom color palette and color placement for your approval.
If you are considering a Premium Finish we work with any nationally available paint such as Benjamin Moore, Behr, Duron, Sherwin Williams, Pratt and Lambert, etc. We will need to know the paint colors you have in your room such as the wall, trim and ceiling colors, or be provided with samples of fabrics to custom match. For example, If you want your ceiling to have the same color palette as an oriental rug in the room, you can select the colors using the paint chips of the company you prefer and/or send us any digital photos we can use to select colors for your approval.
Step 1. Measure — Measure your ceiling, noting the location of any intrusions, such as chandelier, recessed lights, HVAC grilles, speakers, sprinklers and smoke detectors. It is important that your measurements are accurate so they do not interfere with the installation of the painted plaster ornament.
Step 2. Select Ornamentation — Choose the style of ornamental ceiling that works best with your decor and personal preferences. You may mix periods using the running S-curve Louis XV molding for your Empire ceiling instead of the bell running ornament.
Step 3. Specify Ornamentation — Calculate how much molding you will need to connect your corners and side pieces. The running ornament is priced by the foot. It is always a good idea to get more (10-15%) than you will need to allow for miscalculations and breakage which can happen to even the most experienced installer. For difficult ceilings which may have an irregular shape or if you prefer design assistance we provide reflected ceiling plans starting at $100 for a drawing which provides accurate placement of ornamentation for ordering and installation.
Step 4. Place Your Order — Choose your finish from the Standard Faux Finishes and place your order in our E-Store. For a Premium Finish e-mail us for your complimentary consultation with our Artist/Designer to determine your finish. Another ordering option is to use gemstone cabochons, Sworovski flatback crystals, or decorative nailheads to cover the screw heads you will be using to attach your ornamentation to the ceiling. This is an option, as we can locate the screw holes in the relief of the ornament where it will be difficult to see, and the screw heads can be painted to blend in with the finish of your ornament. To see decorative options for the screw heads visit our Gem and Crystal Options page. Once you have placed your order, please allow 6 weeks for delivery. Shipping charges are calculated on the size and weight and will be handled individually. Please call for information.
