New Porch Addition - stain or paint ceiling ? pics

mom2sethcMay 18, 2009


We have added a new porch/outside room addition to our home. We are trying to decide whether to paint the ceiling interior white, or to stain the wood. What would you do and why? What about the rafters, match the ceiling choice?

The roof is nice tongue and groove, and cathedral. We want to install a nice island style ceiling fan.


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I'd put white beadboard over the rafters then paint em white.
