From ceiling paint colour trends to painting tips, here’s all you need to know.
Getting your home repainted? Great! But have you thought of the fifth wall of your rooms – the ceiling? The ceiling colour is what completes the look of each room. The traditional approach is the use of a flat white colour as the ceiling paint. We’ll come to why that could be a brilliant choice. But before that, take a look at some other options to give your rooms a completely unique look and feel.
The Same Colour as the Walls
An easy way to end the debate of ceiling colour vs wall colour is to colour all 5 walls in the same shade. A single colour all over can trick the eyes and make your décor and other room features stand out. But, remember to choose neutral colours for this, such as an earthy tone like Berger Paints Aura. This is because when the ceiling paint is the same as that of the walls, it can make you feel trapped in a cave with nothing to break up the space. Plus, it could make the room look too monochromatic (read boring) unless there are interesting visual details. You could break up the monotony with a contrasting ceiling border colour.
Lighter Colour Than the Walls
Painting the ceiling a few shades lighter than the wall colour is a great way to open up a room and make it feel larger than it actually is. Lighter coloured ceilings also give an impression of the room being full of light. For instance, you could choose Berger Berry Blue for the walls with Berger Song of Hope for the ceiling. If you’re unsure whether such a combination will suit a particular room, use a virtual painter tool to check exactly how the colours will look in your home.
Darker Colour Than the Walls
To make a large room appear inviting and cosy, such as the living room, choose darker false ceiling colours than those on the walls. This could also work for ceiling colour combinations for the hall. A darker ceiling is very on-trend and can make your room look chic and modern. Choose from Berger paint products to find the best colour combination for false ceilings. For instance, if the walls have a light mauve colour, choose Berger Purple Pot for a dark purple from the same colour family.
However, darker ceiling colours are more suited for rooms with high ceilings. If the room has a low false ceiling, dark colours might block out feelings of light and airiness and make you feel claustrophobic. It might be a good idea to consult experienced professionals, such as Berger Express Painting, for ceiling paint colours and false ceiling painting ideas. They will be able to guide you about the most suitable ceiling colour vs wall colour combinations.
The Traditional White Ceiling Will Never Go Out of Fashion
You might wonder whether white ceiling paint is the best colour and whether it would allow you to make a style statement with your home. What you should know is that a flat or matte white ceiling is like a blank canvas. It allows you to play around with the wall colours, décor, furniture and much more. You can easily mix and match or change everything around without worrying about repainting the ceiling.
With a flawless, white ceiling, you can choose textured paints for the walls or create other patterns and play around with dark or light colours. You could even have a striking accent wall in a bright shade of orange, red or green to create a focal point in the room.
Also, with a perfectly white ceiling, the room looks more airy and spacious. White also gives a sense of more light, which can be a very soothing feeling.
Berger Never Miss Ceiling White, for instance, gives the ceiling a dazzling flat white finish. It is known for its excellent power to hide imperfections on the ceiling. Plus, it is a low splatter paint, which means the entire painting job will be a lot less messy. This paint also has dust-resistant properties and has added silicon for water resistance. So, once you paint your ceiling, you can have peace of mind that you have the best-in-class whiteness for years to come.
Whatever paint colour you choose for the ceiling, remember to choose it in a matte or flat finish. This is because the matter finish will not just hide imperfections, it will create a less reflective surface, so that the eyes are not constantly drawn upwards.
