I'm about to have my living room & dining room painted and I'm wondering if the white ceiling look has gone out of fashion. Should I paint it all in one color? (Light, bright grey)
White ceilings are more for function than for aesthetics & should always be done in flat paint regardless of color, here's why:
Light. White ceilings reflect white light onto your colored furniture/walls/etc.
Flat paint spreads light where as say an eggshell reflects in a non-uniform manner & creates glare.
Color is fine, be aware dark colors brings the ceiling down where light colors lift the ceiling up.
That should get you started. For next steps we give every project a 15 minute strategy session for free, hit us up.
