At 16 years old, I made a horrible mistake painting my ceilings. To this day, every time I go back to my hometown to my room, I see my hideously painted ceilings. They are in the darkest shade of brown and are mismatched for the walls. Years of damage have made them look even worse. Yet, I am still a huge fan of painting my ceilings. Why do I still believe so even after that hideous disaster?
Painting your ceilings brings your home a very enhanced look. It makes everything else in your home look better and even changes your mood for the better. Color psychology indicates that our mood and behavior are affected by the colors surrounding us. And our ceiling is part of our surroundings. A ceiling covered in tasteless color not only dampens your mood but also dampens the vibrance of the rest of your home. Bringing in a beautiful ornament and placing it in your room is lost as the world is swallowed up with a dull ceiling.
Ofcourse, while I am all for painting our ceilings, it is important to paint them strategically. We cannot pick out the first color we see and paint them for a better effect. This is only spelling a disaster for your brand new apartment in Kapar. You can only choose the best ceiling color after considering many different variables. Let’s take a closer look at the considerations!
Lighter Colours Equals Spaciousness
Have you decided on what shade of color you want for your ceiling? If you have not yet, it is important to remember that light colors are perfect for creating the illusion of space. When painted with a color like off-white or ivory, your ceiling can look higher than it normally does and your room feels much more airy and lighter.
Lighting Can Change The Colour
Some people love the lighting in their homes. The more ambient lighting there is, the better it is. If you are one of those, remember that the color of your ceiling can drastically change as a result of the lighting. The color of your ceiling gets lost with the lighting around it.
Changing your ceiling color is one of the best ways to bring vibrancy into your home. And to bring vibrance you can easily do a contrast with the colors. One-color for your wall and another one for your ceiling. Creating warm accents or cooler ones and pairing them with two different shades for walls and ceilings can bring in different vibes. Depending on the type of look you want, you can choose the colors that fit your dream interior the most.
Different Colour For Each Room
Sometimes you don’t need your ceiling color to be the same for every room. Most of the time it is always better to choose lighter colors for common areas like the kitchen and the living room while you can reserve the extra pop of color for the bedroom. This makes the family areas more inclusive and wholesome while your bedroom has a more personal taste.
