Default A question for the home improvement experts..

Is it true that painting your ceiling the same color as your walls is in???

Someone told me that it was and I am just seeing if anyone here has painted their ceiling the same color as their walls??

When I painted my house I got paint on the ceiling where it connects to the walls because I told myslef it would get covered up with molding. If I can just go ahead and paint the ceilings then I wouldn't even bother with the molding!

Please advise!!

E~

I guess it's "in"... Personally, I would paint it a shade or two lighter than the walls, especially if the ceiling isn't that high. I still would recommend a flat paint however because the shinyness of gloss make the ceiling seem closer than it really is and makes the room seem smaller

It really depends on the color you choose. I have redone several rooms in my house and have always painted the ceiling white, but my house is standard 8' ceilings and I didn't want it to feel closed in. You know if you don't like it you can just throw a coupla coats of Kilz over it and be done with it.

Paint the ceiling 2 shades lighter than your wall color. A white ceiling (especially w/ an 8' ceiling) makes it look as though someone threw a white sheet over the top of the room.

Keep in mind that if you paint all the walls and the ceiling a certain color, the result will be 2 shades darker then the original paint color.

I always keep my ceilings white... It allows the light to reflect better and gives a lighter warmer tone to the room. You do not want your ceiling to be your rooms focal point.

This coming from a man that gives mullet points.

Guess it depends on what color your walls are going to be, too. What're you thinking about there?

chartreuse

j/k

I keep the ceiling white. Our bedroom is red (more of a brick color) and the kitchen is yellow. I like the contrast with the ceiling. Also, I have had good luck with Sherwin - Williams paint.

All you need is a hot glue gun, and astroturf. Nuff said.

So, I watch QE4TSG and Trading spaces!

But in all honestly, my wife and I painted all the rooms inside our house last year so I read up on it before we did it.
