Ceilings are usually painted white, or a VERY pale colour, because dark or strong colours make the ceiling seem low, and darken the room. If a colour is used then a slightly darker shade of the same colour on the walls would look nice.
There is no specific set rules about painting the walls and ceilings. People usually paint the walls and the ceiling with the same color. However, you can use different colors for walls and ceiling according to your taste. Modern homes usually have a variety of colors on the walls and ceiling. The key is to have a balanced approach while selecting the colors.
No! Painting the walls one color and having a better light reflecting sunlight and artificial light is the norm. This would have the ceiling a white, off-white or a silver white, in a flat paint. A slightly less pronounced shade of the wall color can be considered. Take as an example a dark royal blue painted walls with the same treatment on the ceiling...you would feel like being in a cave & would not be at ease!
We have white base board trim and painted the walls a light brown and putting a 4 in crown molding around the roof and painting it white the ceiling is painted white could we get away with painting the ceiling egg cell color and look good so the white crown molding stands out
Well I have painted my wall and ceiling the same color but the room is huge with high ceiling ( it does make the room feel smaller), but if you have a smaller room I would recommend either white or using a shade lighter then wall
I say no, do not paint the ceiling the same color. You may paint all the ceilings throughout your home the same color but not the same color as walls.
Most people paint the ceiling white or off white,
Now a days no one paints their wall and ceiling with same color. There are so many shades available in the store so people usually paint wall with different color then ceiling.
That is why I am asking..my walls are going to be white with a barely suggestion of green. I would like to paint ceilings the same, not sure of outcome. JLP
