Are you planning to repaint your home this month? We suggest you start from the top and work your way down. It’s strategic to paint the ceiling first, followed by the walls and other surfaces like trims, doors, and cabinets. If you ever have paint drips or splatters, it’s easier to correct them later on.

Since we are on the topic of repainting, we compiled some ceiling painting ideas to show you how dressing up your ceiling can transform a room and inspire you to go beyond the comfort of white. When people think of painting their ceiling, the default color in mind is white. Although it is always a failproof paint color option for ceilings, we want to show you less obvious ways to spruce them up. These unique inspirations come with a Boysen color palette so you can easily try them in your home.

Let your ceiling make a colorful statement!

Gorgeously Green

This green ceiling feels like a breath of fresh air in this cozy living room. It is painted with a muted green hue, which contrasts nicely with the warmth from the painting and furniture. The ceiling gives off just the right amount of coolness that brings the space into balance.

Striking Stripes

There’s nothing subtle in this stripe-on-stripe inspiration. It’s typical to stick to white or lighter hues to help make tiny spaces feel bigger. But you can still make a small room look spacious by painting your ceilings with bold stripes. In this peg, the small sitting room looks more protracted with the vertical stripes. Plus, it makes the living space look more exciting by giving it a circus-like feel.
