colors to paint low ceiling room walls, ceiling, and trim
I am putting a finished room in my basement and the ceiling height is about 6' 7", so its very low down there and I'm trying to figure out what colors to use on the walls and ceiling to make it look as big as possible. It feels very small because the ceiling is so low, even though the room is about 11' x 22' total size.
My main questions are:
1. I've heard you should paint the ceiling the same color as the walls to make it look taller (assuming you pick a very light wall color). Any truth to that? I thought white ceiling paint made a room look bigger.
2. Should I paint the doors and baseboard trim the same color as the walls too, just in semi-gloss finish?
The carpet is going to be a neutral, light brownish color.
Any advice from folks that have painted rooms with low ceilings and had success would be appreciated. Pictures too if you have some.
