While the general belief is that all ceilings should be painted white, it’s simply not true! There is simply no reason why a ceiling can’t take center stage in your room! After all, it’s the fifth “wall” in every room!
Ceilings do affect us. While a soaring ceiling in a spacious room raises our spirits, in a small room, it can be disconcerting. Some people feel low ceilings cause feelings of heaviness. And to other people a low ceiling gives them a cozy and inviting feel.
If you want your ceiling to appear “higher” then using a lighter tone color than your walls will do the trick. And conversely, if you wish your ceiling to appear a bit darker and more dramatic, your color selection should be a bit darker than your wall color.
Two more excellent ceiling options are wall covering, and texturizing. The right wall covering pattern would add just that touch of visual interest to your ceiling. Perhaps a mural design on your ceiling would add more drama and excitement to your room. And texturizing your ceiling with a decorative paint treatment will be sure to add another dazzling dimension to your room.
Whatever you try, don’t forget the fifth wall - your ceilings – and have some design fun making them Center Stage!
