Painting the Fifth Wall
What color to paint my ceiling?
You know that picking out the perfect color for your walls or the perfect rug for your floors can really enhance the look of a room, but don’t forget that the ceiling can play a pivotal role in transforming a space.
White is a popular ceiling color because of its neutrality. This also makes it the safest choice. But making an impact with your ceiling color doesn’t mean you have to choose a bold, bright color. Consider using a color or shade or two lighter than your walls. This will insure that the wall and ceiling tones will work well together and it will also create a nice flow of color. Painting your walls and ceiling the same color creates one continuous flow and allows other feature in the room to stand out. If you want to bring the ceiling down, consider painting it a darker color.This plus the crown molding pulls your eye to ceiling and gives this architectural detail a finished appearance.
