If you're scratching your head at what you can do to spice up a room in your home, have you considered painting the ceiling? It might sound a bit out of the ordinary to do such a thing, but that's exactly why it's a fun and adventurous design decision. A painted ceiling can instantly calm, energize or modernize a space, depending on the color and/or pattern you choose.
Benjamin Moore has some great ideas and tips on their website, and we'll outline some of the key takeaways. The first thing to keep in mind is that if you have a room with lots of furnishings and visual elements, painting the ceiling a dark color can help balance the busyness. On the flip side, if you want to add some pop to a themed room or game room, consider using a bright color like you would on an accent wall. Be sure to balance the bright ceiling out with a neutral tone on the walls.
High ceilings "can handle bold colors and designs, even in smaller rooms," according to the Benjamin Moore article. Consider using a stencil to make bold designs like flowers or stars. On the flipside, if you're wanting to create a peaceful or calm environment, it's better to use a pastel color like pale blue, cream, yellow or sage green.
Earth tones, like tan, brown, and rust orange can create a "cozy yet elegant look". This would be perfect for a guest room, a mountain cabin's master bedroom or a nursery. Consider adding unique light elements to your ceiling as well.
