In recent months, more and more people are finding that their ceiling doesn’t have to be white, nor does it have to be a popcorn type ceiling. With that in mind, many are also finding that the ceiling is a perfect way to add a good dose of color into the interior design of their home. Here’s the low down on the colorful painted ceiling trend.
Where Can I Use a Painted Ceiling?
Getting right down to business, it’s worth mentioning that you can actually do a colorful painted ceiling in just about any room in your home. In fact, it is a great way to add a pop of color to bedroom designs, bathroom designs and even living room designs. If done in a tasteful way, a colorful painted ceiling can also add a whimsical, romantic or elegant touch to kitchen designs.
You can also paint ceilings in your outdoor space if you’re not quite ready to paint your interior ceilings. Consider painting the ceiling of your gazebo or front porch, or other outdoor space, to test the waters and see if you can stomach painting the ceilings in your interior spaces.
Pros and Cons of Painted Ceilings
One of the biggest benefits to the painted ceiling is that it is truly unique, especially in interior design. Many people wouldn’t even dare paint their ceiling a hue other than white, making it highly unlikely that you’ll see this look in your neighbor’s home, or anywhere else for that matter.
Another benefit is that a painted ceiling can help a large, cavernous room feel smaller, more cozy. This is beneficial in extremely large rooms where you’re having a hard time dealing with all the space, at least in terms of decorating ideas.
Finally, painted ceilings can add a unique touch of elegance, a touch of whimsy or any other inspired feeling you’d like to add to any given space. They’re unexpected and when done right, they’re a great way to compliment your existing interior design.
On the other hand, if you end up choosing a color that doesn’t work like you’d imagined, it can be difficult to repaint it. This is because repainting a ceiling is hard work, harder work than repainting your walls. Holding your arms upwards can make the task take significantly longer.
Since it is a time consuming and exhausting task, you may find yourself contemplating hiring a professional painter which of course, is a con purely because it costs you additional money that you may not have planned in your interior design budget.
Painting the ceiling is a great way to add unexpected color to a space. However, it’s not for everyone, and it’s certainly not for the faint of heart. Be confident in your choices and you’ll find that you love how your interior design looks with a beautiful, colorful painted ceiling-even if that color is subtle or vibrant.
