It’s above everyone’s heads. No one’s going to notice it; no one ever looks up. Might as well paint it white…right? We say, don’t!
Coloured ceilings have been largely avoided until recently. Thank goodness for that because it is very much a shame to see pretty coloured walls and a boring white ceiling topping it off! Besides, white gets dirty and discoloured faster than other colours.
With more and more people going for interesting colours, living rooms are beginning to live up to their names, bedroom ceilings are more cheerful to wake up to and bathroom ceilings give you something to look at when you’re busy.
If you don’t have time to paper everything, shift the furniture and buy paint to give your room a new lease of life, something as simple as painting your ceiling can help. A lighter colour on the ceilings than that of you walls can give the illusion of a bigger room! If your room is too big or your ceiling is too high, simply do the opposite and paint your ceiling a darker colour.
Your dining room and master bedroom are one of the rooms where you can attempt dramatic colours like red or a nice metallic one. If you want to keep your ceiling away from white but don’t want a bold colour, go for a neutral colour like a light beige or tan. Even a light khaki could work, depending on the colours of your wall.
Like the above picture, it’s about perusing the colour scheme and then finding the complimentary colours. Don’t be afraid to mix and match the colours. Who would have thought that sandy walls and a powder blue ceiling would look that amazing?
