Look Up before You Build Your New Home

When was the last time you looked up and pondered the color of a ceiling? Switching up a ceiling color is a great way to change the appearance of an entire room. So before you build that new home, here are some options to consider:

  • Paint the ceiling the same color as the walls for a rich, inviting atmosphere.
  • Use lighter or darker shades of the wall color to create a soothing space with extra depth.
  • Incorporate a darker ceiling color than the wall color creates a cozier environment – great for powder rooms, bathrooms or bedrooms.
  • For tall ceilings, extend the ceiling color a few feet down the walls to make the room feel more intimate.
  • For a coffered ceiling, paint color between the coffers for extra drama and sophistication.
  • Paint the ceiling a completely different color to add flair. Use accent colors from area rugs, art and other decor pieces to tie it in.
  • A white ceiling with white walls creates an airy, open area. Try warm, neutral palettes like soft white or ivory rather than stark white.
  • Thinking about going bold on the wall color? Then paint the ceiling white so the effect isn’t overwhelming.
  • Painting the ceiling a light, soft blue gives the illusion of sky.
  • Add a metallic or pearlescent finish to the ceiling to create a regal, marble-like facade.
