By far our most popular printed stretch ceiling that we manufacture for clients is a bright blue sky with clouds. We spend so much time gazing at them during the manufacture and installation process that we felt compelled to do a bit of research on cloud formations. What is the cloud formation that most people go for and what other cloud formations are there?
Well the main four cloud formations are: cumulus, cirrus, stratus and nimbus.
Read on to find out more about each.
Translation from Latin: an accumulation, a heap, a pile.
This is our go-to cloud formation for most ceilings. Multiple bright white fluffy cotton-wool clouds on a clear blue sky.

Here is the team from Easy Ceiling making cumulus printed stretch ceiling panels in our factory.
Translation from Latin: a tuft of hair
The cumulus cloud formation is by far the most popular. In fact we don’t think we have done any of the other cloud formations. But if you do want to buck the trend Cirrus might be worth a look.Wispier and less dominant than cumulus but they still make us dream of a slow relaxing day in the sunshine.

Translation from Latin: to spread out
You get less blue sky with this option, a spread out layer of multiple clouds, less blue to be seen, but still very pretty.

Translation from Latin: rainy cloud
Again we are yet to install a printed ceiling with a rain cloud filled sky but if you are after a melancholy moody feel for your room then nimbus might be for you?

While we are talking about clouds and skies we cannot not mention our second most popular ceiling we install which is also a sky but with no clouds to be seen as it is a night sky effect, typically created with twinkling multi-colour fibre optic lights. This swimming pool ceiling is actually a cloudy blue sky by day and a twinkling starry sky at night!
Well we feel we have learnt something by writing this blog. Hopefully you have by reading. Want to be the first to go for a different cloud formation for your ceiling than cumulus? Please get in touch and we will sort it for you!
