I recently helped someone who ran into a time crunch with a basement remodel and needed extra hands to get the painting completed on time. It was a small painting project but it did include a ceiling, which was a first for me.
The ceiling paint had already been chosen by the time I arrived on the scene – a nice basic white that was recommended by the paint store. It certainly did it’s part in finishing off the space, and painting the ceiling wasn’t as complicated as I imagined it to be.
The experience did get me thinking, though, about how more often than not we automatically choose white paint for the ceiling rather than opting for an interesting color.
I’m assuming that most of us probably aren’t going to repaint all of our ceilings just for the fun of it, but a color other than white is definitely worth considering – especially when painting a ceiling for the first time.
It’s an extra design detail that really takes a space to the next level, don’t you think?
If you’re considering painting a ceiling, but are unsure how to go about it, here are some resources:

Have you ever painted a ceiling? Would you ever choose a color other than white?
