There’s no law that says ceilings have to be white. In fact, your ceiling is just as integral to the overall look and feel of your room as the walls and trim. So why treat it as an afterthought?
Instead, consider the possibilities to echo or accent your room’s color scheme. If you’re using a light color on your walls, use the same color for the ceiling…or a paint that’s just a shade or two brighter. Or, use a complementary color to add dimension and depth.
Or, if you have a dramatic light treatment, or an alcoved or textured ceiling, don’t be afraid to showcase it with a bold color choice that draws eyes…and raves.
