Painting your ceiling can seem like a daring move, but as these rooms demonstrate, it isn’t necessarily so! A bright and beautiful ceiling hue can bring a layer of personality to a space that just can’t be achieved by painted walls alone. These homes will have you thinking of ceiling paint in a whole new way. Just don’t be surprised if you look up at your own ceiling when you’ve finished reading — oh, the possibilities!

Teal. All the colorful chairs in the world wouldn’t give this room the same lift as a ceiling this luscious. It’s a great choice for a beach-style home.

Turquoise. A deeper shade of a similar hue can take an art deco bathroom to new heights, especially in a monochromatic setting like this one. Imagine the same retro bathroom with a white ceiling. Still nice, but not nearly as fetching.

Chartreuse. The usual approach in children’s bedrooms is to add loads of color with bright bedding, rugs and curtains … or if they’re really lucky, a feature wall. A painted ceiling means the room is still bright and cheery, but you don’t have to go overboard with color in the soft furnishings. A yellow with a hint of green in it will add an edge of sophistication to any room — just what a child’s room needs if it’s going to stand the test of time.

Yellow. What could be cheerier than a canary-yellow ceiling in the kitchen? Pair it with gray and white for a contemporary rather than country vibe.

Black. White is a common choice for ceilings because it makes a room feel bigger, but what if you want a room to feel cozier or ultrachic rather than bigger? The black furnishings and window frames work brilliantly with the black ceiling and lighting choices in this living room; a white ceiling may well have made it feel cold.

Tip: An ultraflat paint on the ceiling will help it disappear rather than encroach on the room, as a gloss paint would do.

Red. It may be bold, but if your personality is on the more outgoing side, red may suit you to a T. And what better way to show off a striking white lighting design than a red backdrop? The claw-foot tub color is a perfect match.
