According to real estate agents Mia Cottet and Cassandra Svolis, pastel-colored ceilings usually give off the impression of a preschool classroom and cheapen the room’s whole look. The same goes for neon and primary colors.
No bold colors
Styling the interior of a room is harder when the walls are painted with bold colors. Imagine what it’s like to come up with a color for the walls of a room with a bold ceiling. You don’t want your room to feel like a circus tent, do you?
Now, we all know that trends in design keep changing and that art has no concrete rules. That being said, you should never ever paint your ceiling red. This color is too associated with aggression and the wrong kind of film genre.
White is not mandatory
While white is your safest choice of ceiling color, you don’t have to conform to it. Dark colors will make a room seem smaller, but also cozier and more intimate, so you might want to consider a darker ceiling for a large bedroom. A darker ceiling can also help a bathroom feel more intimate.
Try a wallpaper
Wallpapers and walls aren’t mutually exclusive. A room will get a nice visual pop with the right wallpaper on the ceiling. However, if you’re interested in selling the property sometime in the future, stick to muted or natural shades. The real estate agents would advise too put a pin in the wallpaper idea and save it for a more permanent home.
