Ceilings can make a surprising difference to the overall presentation and feel of any room. The ceiling is the only surface in the room that is as large as the floor. Traditionally, the ceiling is typically left some form of white and then dutifully ignored. At best, the ceiling may have some texture, but their are other possibilities that a little color can help make go a long way and we at L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc would like to elaborate on painting the ceiling.
Preparation for Painting the Ceiling
Some may be looking at their colorless ceiling thinking that it could use a fresh new look but are uncertain how painting can modernize the look. Today, we at L.W. Winslow Painting, Inc would like to discuss painting the ceiling. Before you start the painting however, there are a few things that need to be prepped for the ceiling.
– Popcorn ceiling texture will need to be removed. Though it is a messy process and can be hazardous as it could carry asbestos; professional assistance is recommended.
– The ceiling needs to be flat and smooth.
– Any stains on the ceiling should warrant a coat of a stain blocking primer.
– Prior to priming and painting, remove dust and cobwebs.
Do not feel like white is not the classic beauty you are looking for, but there are other exciting colors you can choose from to add spice to your room.
Ceiling Paint Color Ideas
Option 1 – Painting walls and ceilings the same color: Light colors work well with this option; colors grey, pale blue, beige, and other light colors. The contrast between the walls and ceiling are removed, allowing the colors on the room from furniture, curtains, flooring, artwork, and so on, stand out. Additionally, any existing or added crown molding painted a glossy white goes beautifully with this look.
Option 2 – Paint the color ceiling the same color as the walls but a few shades lighter or darker: This can still give the room a unified feel without making too uniformed. Rooms with low ceilings that could feel cramped can be made airy and roomy with a lighter ceiling where darker shades can make the room look cozier.
Option 3 – Painting the ceiling a contrast color: Perhaps the most unique and colorful option. This option is exceptionally used when the walls are neutral and you are looking to add a splash of color. Where black and grey are increasingly trending, any color can be great but pale pastel colors can be truly amazing. Consider matching up the decorations and accents with the ceiling color.
