Why You Should Paint Your Ceiling
When it comes to painting your house, one popular reason is to refresh it and give it a new look. However, one of the most overlooked walls is the 5th wall—your ceiling. While painting your ceiling may not be your first consideration, there are several reasons that can make painting your ceiling a great choice when working on your home. At Mike’s Quality Painting in Albuquerque, our expert team can consult with you to discover what the best choice is for your home and provide exceptional service you can rely on.
Old or Outdated Room
If you’re looking to update a room that is older and out of style, it will need a complete refresh, and that includes the ceiling. You don’t want to have a room with freshly painted walls but an old, outdated ceiling. A fresh coat of paint should be added to the whole room to create a uniform look, and can also work toward hiding any imperfections. When it comes to choosing a color, it can also be an opportunity to match the colors of the room and the ceiling whether they are all the same color or to create a tasteful contrast.
Create an Open or Cozy Space
Painting your ceiling can also open up opportunities to create a larger open space or a smaller cozier area. Darker colors, such as navy blue or dark gray, can create a smaller space that is more inviting, especially in areas with tall vaulted ceilings. Lighter colors have the opposite effect. A lighter ceiling color that contrasts with the walls draws the eyes toward the ceiling and can create the illusion of higher ceilings.
Highlight Design Features
If you have a recessed ceiling, exposed beams, or crown molding, then painting your ceiling gives you the opportunity to highlight these features! To create a stand-out look, there should be a contrast between the ceiling and the features. For example, if the ceiling is a lighter color, then the features you want to highlight should be painted a darker color, and vice versa.
