When revamping your personal space, painting a room is one of the most efficient and effective ways to change it. Rooms with very high ceilings can be intimidating to tackle with painting supplies, but hiring a painting contractor is always the best option), Listed below are some ideas for using colors with high ceilings.
Visually Expand Your Colors
One of the most significant ways to visually expand a space is with light colors, primarily white. If you’re worried about the room being too cool or cold, you can opt for warmer off-whites and creams instead of a stark white. To make the room feel even more prominent, make the ceiling lighter than the walls by at least a few shades. This can be as slight as just a two-shade difference, which will be less visually noticeable but will still give the illusion of more space.
Visually Draw In Colors
If a lighter ceiling and slightly darker walls can visually expand the space, the opposite should do the opposite, which is true. It even works on those high, vaulted ceilings. If you are interested in visually drawing down those high ceilings, make the paint colors on the ceiling two or more shades darker than the wall color. The more shades of difference in the color, the more dramatic the effect will be. Additionally, warm and deep shades make a room seem smaller (and warmer and cozier).
Accent And Drama
If you want a theatrical effect but don’t want the whole room to be dark (and possibly feel too imposing), leave the walls a neutral light and opt for a dramatic, dark tone on the ceiling. This is usually too intense with standard ceilings, but it creates a fantastic effect in rooms with very high ceilings.
