A ceiling can be any color you want it to be, more or less — it doesn’t have to be just the one color that seemingly most people choose for it (plain vanilla white, that is) and in fact, it can be so much more depending on your tastes and interest.
The question that comes to the forefront of the mind is the matter of how one would go about choosing a ceiling color from all the colors available out there.
It might not seem immediately obvious, but the color or colors of the walls have a significant influence on what your ceiling color or colors should or rather could be.
For example, if your walls are entirely white, it would be silly for your ceiling to be white as well when it could be a beautiful bright color to look up to.
If you have darker colored walls, it might be a better idea to consider a lighter color or possibly even white.
The purpose of the room has a lot to do with how the room looks, and a lot of what the room looks like has to do with the color of the ceiling, naturally.
If a person were to go into their kitchen and look up to see a purple ceiling, it might not make a lot of sense as purple doesn’t seem like the best color for a kitchen.
In a living room or a dining room, purple might make a lot more sense as it is a color conducive to entertaining, which goes along well with the color.
Glossy finishes are never a good idea for your ceiling as when the light from the day comes through the windows in your home; you will have issues with the light hitting that glossy finish and making for an unpleasant situation.
Whenever possible, you will want to stick to a paint that is as flat as possible, which is also known as a matte finish.
One might think a particular color is that color no matter what, but this is not the case — under different conditions, a particular color will look different.
A particular paint color might look one way during the day, another way at night, and yet another way depending on what kind of artificial light is used to illuminate the room.
Considering that this is true, it is important to test out the paint color or colors one is going to use in those different conditions to make sure they fit for the living space or room of choice.
The last bit of advice we have for you is that you should not even consider popcorn ceilings, no matter what color you end up choosing.
Popcorn is the kind of thing that might have worked years ago, but it is 2020 now (although it might be later than that by the time you find yourself reading this) and you just should not be using the popcorn ceiling look for your ceiling regardless of what color it is.
It would be better to use white as the color in your whole home and not use popcorn ceilings.
