Knowing that this is a tough topic for most homeowners, I’ve asked Sarah Bernardy-Broman of Sarah Bernardy Design to help us feel a little more comfortable with addressing our ceilings. Read below to hear what Sarah is saying about painting your ceilings.
During a color consult for my clients the other day we had made our selections for all the wall colors on the main level, when the wife asked, “now what color for the ceiling? Can we do something other than white?” An instant smile stretched across my face, not only because she was first in suggesting we put color on the ceiling, a controversial topic in most households, but they have the coveted flat ceilings, not popcorn or knock-down! Can you feel my smile? I view the open space immediately looking for the starting and stopping points per room. We select a nice soft yellow called, Cottage Cream from Sherwin Williams that compliments all of our color selection, but is much warmer than the existing primer white.
When did color on the walls above become a subject that’s hard to address? I’m not saying you need Sistine Chapel glory on your ceilings; I’m talking a color other than white. Painting your ceilings the same color or even a shade or two lighter then the walls in your room or home is not rocket science, but it may take a color expert to get you to the right shade suited for your space and level of comfort.
