7 Reasons to Have a Non-White Ceiling
Neutral, unexciting, nothing special… That’s about a traditional white ceiling. Let there be color! Why the entire expression always comes from the walls, floor, furniture and accessories, while the ceiling is painted white without a second thought?
Light beige or pale yellow won’t make your ceiling look lower, some pale green will add spring freshness, and light blue will fill the room with the sense of airiness and lightness. Do you think that a red, crimson or emerald ceiling will spoil your interior? Of course, it will. But only if you won’t plan the color scheme beforehand – each color must find its rightful place and the room mustn’t be overfurnished. Following this simple golden rules, you will create a fresh, non-standard interior.
Let’s find out 7 reasons to have a non-white ceiling with photos!
1. TO PULL THE COLOR SCHEME TOGETHER.
You have a passion for turquoise color and unconsciously purchased a bunch of sweet turquoise things, which make your interior look fragmented? Be daring and paint your ceiling in the same color or its light hue and you will see how everything will go back to normal!
2. TO ADD COZINESS.
There are rooms, which look empty and cold despite all your efforts. A ceiling of warm soft color would be a nice way-out.
3. TO LOWER THE CEILING VISUALLY.
It’s hard to imagine, but some people want their ceiling to look lower. In this case it’s advisable to paint it dark. To enhance the effect, paint the top parts of the walls the same color.
4. TO ZONE THE ROOM.
Cooking and dining spots are traditionally zoned by means of token walls, different flooring materials or furniture arrangement. Painting a part of the ceiling may be a good alternative. A bright square on the ceiling may accent the centerpiece of the room – the guest zone.
5. TO MAKE SOMETHING NEW.
What can condo people do if they dream about a big fashionable house from an interior design magazine? They can’t drill a French window or extend their square meters. But an interesting bright ceiling may make the apartment authentic and eye-catching.
6. TO ADD LIFE.
Traditional furniture arrangement with a lounge featuring a couch + a carpet + a TV-set is too regular. Sometimes we need a canary-yellow ceiling to become more active and energetic.
7. TO EXPRESS YOURSELF.
In wintertime our emotions need to be released. If you need to escape daily routine and express yourself, coat your ceiling with some juicy color! After all, you can come back to white anytime J
