Ceilings and Floors


Floors and ceilings are excellent surfaces to make an artistic statement. Hannon Art Works uses the most durable products for long lasting floor decoration. Ceilings, especially in bedrooms, can be open to the sky, or decorated with metallic sheens, stenciled patterns and old world mural reproductions.

Cobblestone Concrete Floor

This finished basement was in need of a durable floor that would be wet
on a regular basis due to enjoying the lake behind the home. Tile was too slippery
and carpet would get moldy, so painting and clearcoating
the existing concrete was the perfect solution.

For this teen's high-peaked vaulted ceiling, twilight clouds with glow-in-the-dark

Tray Ceiling Calligraphy & Floral Motifs

The quote "Be who you are and say what you feel because
those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind"
by Dr. Seuss was designed to coordinate with custom draperies in a
model home at "The Preserve" in South Kingstown, Rhode Island.

Historical Floor Marbling

In this 1805 home only a turkey feather and a rag were used on the plain gray floor
to create a historically accurate reproduction of the original surface. Christine was
honored when the home was granted the 2006 RI State Preservation Award
for an outstanding commitment to historic preservation.
