Picking the perfect color for a ceiling is not as simple as many people think. It is a tough job that requires a creative mind and while many people go for neutral colors by default, there are many things involved if you want to get the perfect color for your ceiling.

With that said, if you are ready to give your ceilings a new coat of paint, but you can’t decide which color to go for, and you are tired from using neutral ceiling paint colors, you have come to the right place. Encore Painting in Mckinney has been providing interior painting jobs in Texas for several years and we have a great deal of experience in picking the perfect colors.

We sat down with our professional painters and discussed what makes a ceiling color ‘perfect’ and what is the trend amongst most people we have served. Here’s what they had to say.

Classic and Traditional Ceiling Colors

  • Our painters say that if you want to play it safe and still make your ceiling stand out, opt for classic or traditional colors. They never fail to give your ceiling the look it deserves. And if you want to take it a notch further, then consider darker colors that give your ceiling a dramatic feel. 

If you want to make your rooms feeling energetic and alive, then bright colors such as yellow, turquoise or orange are your best choice. For a completely safe outlook, go for white or shades of white such as off-white to paint your ceiling. White color is a natural winner amongst a lot of people because it typically goes with nearly any kind of color scheme you have in your room. 

Don’t Be Afraid To Experiment With Trendy Colors

  • It may seem intimidating to work with new or completely different colors than you are used to, but believe it or not, there are many options you can try and it can actually give new life to your room and ceiling.

If you like grand, cozy and sophisticated looks in rooms, you have to pick different colors than the classic and traditional ones. For instance, if you have a dim room, it can benefit a lot from walls and ceilings painted with ivory white color, blush pink, yellow, sky blue, or even pale peach. 

  • No matter what you decide to go with, choosing the perfect color for your ceiling is just the beginning. The real deal comes when you have to make sure that the colors are painted properly by a professional.

Sure you can DIY most ceiling paint jobs, but a professional ensures that the color perfectly plays its part in the room. It’s not just about painting, its about making the surface ready, cleaning it properly, and then using coat techniques that professionals are known for.
