One overlooked area for color in a room is the ceiling. Why not switch it up and try something new like painting the ceiling?! Adding color to a ceiling can breathe some new life into your room and add dimension and depth. Below are just a couple helpful hints to get you started.
- Dark colors. Rich, deep colors can help a large room feel more balanced and warm. Lighter walls and a dark ceiling will help draw the eye upward.
- Light colors. Color on a ceiling in a small room can help make the room feel more spacious by keeping the contrast of the walls minimal.
- Effects. Another option for your ceiling is to try different textures and effects. Try a glossy paint or one with metallic or pearlescent effects.
While these are just a couple helpful guidelines, experiment with your blank canvas! Try bold colors in a child’s play room or a pattern on the ceiling. Let your paintbrush be your guide.
