Painting Your Bedroom Ceiling

Repainting your ceiling is a great way of drastically changing the way your bedroom looks. If you are considering bedroom remodeling any time in the near future, you should definitely add painting your ceiling to your list. Ceilings are often forgotten during renovation. However, changes to your ceiling can give the illusion of a larger space. Depending on the paint scheme, you can also alter the overall ambience of your room. Do you want your room to look more relaxing? Do you want to make it look more romantic and intimate? With the right paint job, these effects are easy to achieve.

Aside from altering the ambience in your bedroom, repainting your ceiling is also very affordable. However, there are certain factors that you need to consider before calling the contractors. First of all, check your ceiling to see what kind of surface you are working with. You should also think about trimmings that you would like to add such as new lighting fixtures or molding on the edges. Think about the total design scheme you are going to use for the entire room. Keep in mind that the paint colors and designs you choose for your ceiling will have to complement the rest of the room or any new trimmings. Once you have decided on the details, start consulting with your contractor.

Ceiling Paint Characteristics

When considering materials for your ceiling, keep in mind that the paint used in ceiling is different from the paint used for walls. This type of paint is often thicker. However, ceiling paint is a lot less durable than other types of paint. It can chip or get scratched easily. Given that ceilings rarely come into contact with anything, this should not be an issue with your bedroom remodeling.


Different colors will have different effects on your ceiling. White, though, is the most common color used. If you want to make a statement, you can try loud and vibrant colors. As a general rule of thumb, lighter colors can make the room appear larger, brighter, and more open. On the other hand, darker colors can make a room look smaller and more intimate. Just a few things to keep in mind when deciding on a color.

Don’t overlook your ceiling when making bedroom remodeling plans. Small changes like ceiling color can really make a big difference on the entire look of your bedroom.
