The ceiling is the first thing many people notice when they enter a room or building. Ceilings help create a comfortable environment. A ceiling improves insulation and increases natural light in the home. No wonder many painting contractors in Sonoma County and elsewhere consider the ceiling the ‘fifth wall’.
Painting your ceiling is one of the most effective ways to improve the visual flow between your rooms. A freshly painted ceiling catches and holds attention.
Here are some compelling reasons to paint your ceilings.
Make the Space Look Bigger
Want to make a small space look bigger? Paint the ceilings a dark color. Many interior designers use a velvety black color to open up a small space and create the illusion of higher ceilings. If the area has bright white walls, a dark ceiling will help balance the hues of the furnishings and decor.
Make Rooms Feel More Welcoming and Warmer
If you have large rooms with high ceilings, consider painting them in a darker tone than the walls to make them look and feel more inviting. If the walls are dark, use the same tone to make the area feel cozier and warmer. Do not use dark colors for small rooms as they can make the space feel oppressive.
Accenting the ceilings of an area can change the entire mood of the space. Many designers use dark colors or patterned wallpaper to add the visual interest and elevate the entire design. If you want to make a room look more sophisticated and stylish, paint the ceiling and the walls in the same color.
If you have a kitchen or bathroom with white fixtures, coloring the walls and the ceiling will add interest to the space. Use a bold color such as bright green to offset the all-white elements and add energy to the room.
You can also add interest to your ceilings by installing timber panels. In addition to enhancing the aesthetic appeal of spaces, timber panels add warmth and texture.
Add Drama and Elegance to Spaces
A painted ceiling with a defined trim edge can help add drama and elegance to a space. Use bright and bold colors for kids’ rooms. If your child is growing into adolescence, use a youthful color such as light blue.
