Ceiling 911

Posted by walkersnc (My Page) on

I hope someone can give me some advice. The painters are here and want to start painting the ceilings today. My problem is a very large family room ceiling that extends into the foyer and down the upstairs hall. It has one slanted wall, and is two levels high. I'm putting a clay beige on the walls, and am afraid that I won't like the ceiling if it's very light. I don't know if I should cut the wall paint down to 50% and put it on the ceiling, continue with the light sand color that I've chosen for the other ceilings, cut it to 20%, paint just the slanted part the wall color, etc.etc.etc..... My head is spinning. Of course the painters want to paint the ceiling the light sand. I am a very traditional person, but the ceiling is really too high. Does anyone have any guidance to give? Thanks so much!

Just paint it white and be done with the head ache

I agree with Christophern. You really can't go wrong with a white ceiling.

RE: Ceiling 911

Agreed. A white ceiling is standard, traditional, reliable, classic, and just what you headache required.
