Ceilings No Longer Need to be White

Ceilings No Longer Need to be White
Typically ceilings are painted white. The same is said about the woodwork such as door frames, coving and skirting board too. This trend creates a clear definition between the walls, floors and ceilings and even frames the wall colour.
However, recently interior designers have veered away from this instead painting the walls and ceilings in the same shade. The fear in the past is that this will make a room feel cramped and smaller than it is, but actually, it creates a more modern look that is also uniform.
Since painting the walls and ceiling the same colour simplifies the room, it also allows for attention to be turned to other aspects or features of the room rather than just the colour on the wall. Therefore it works well when there are other items to show off in the room, such as a piece of artwork or eye-catching furniture.
Recently interiors have moved away from the minimal look to more bold, luxurious and colourful designs. Furniture is mixed and matched with many straying away from ‘safer’ looks in favour of something that stands out more using a mixture of colours, textures and patterns. For those attempting this look, a uniform backdrop painting the room in the same colour will not detract from these significant pieces.
Not only can ceilings be painted in the same colour, but also the door and door frame for the ultimate uniform look. Somehow it also makes a room feel bigger, which is not the first thought when people venture down this route!
Wallpaper is another recent trend that has taken off
Wallpaper is another recent trend that has taken off. The market is awash with different designs to suit all tastes and budgets from simple designs to more elaborate bespoke hand-painted silk wallpaper at the other end of the scale.
Smaller rooms such as a separate toilet work well with wallpapered walls and wallpaper on the ceilings too, but not for larger spaces partly as it is costly and difficult to achieve. Instead paint the ceilings and woodwork in a shade taken from the wallpaper to help create continuity between each surface area. This will also not detract from the design of the wallpaper, which should remain as the room’s main interior focus.
