Painting Your Ceiling for a Bold New Year
As the new year approaches, the question that most often arises is: “What can I do differently this year?”. While there are plenty of options outside like hitting the gym or starting a new hobby, why not spruce up the inside of your home by boldly painting your ceilings a color other than white? Although white is the traditional color for ceilings—painting your ceiling a new color can be exciting and add that splash of adventure you’re looking for. A uniquely painted ceiling can draw attention to a room and make it feel renewed. If you’re thinking about making a change, Mike’s Quality Painting in Albuquerque can help you choose the perfect color for your ceilings and help you start the new year with a bang!
Why Paint Your Ceiling?
While painting your walls or trimming may be something you think about throughout the year, painting the ceiling may not cross your mind as often. Painting a ceiling can brighten up a room and make it appear larger. Matching the ceiling paint to your walls can make the room appear more spacious by drawing the eye toward the ceiling. If you don’t want to use the same color as the walls, painting the ceiling a slightly lighter color than the walls will help achieve the same effect. You can also make a room feel cozier, such as the bedroom or a small office, by using a darker color to help soften everything and make it feel warm and inviting.
If you’re not looking to make a room appear larger than it really is, you can also choose bold, dramatic colors to contrast the rest of the room. Rooms that naturally have a lot of sunlight can benefit from light beige or white walls and a darker ceiling color, like a mauve or royal blue. High ceilings especially benefit from these contrasts as it serves to draw the eye upwards and creates a dramatic look.
