Short notice: ceiling paint ideas needed urgently
April 17, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I am having my ceilings painted tomorrow. I am torn between BM white dove and a cleaner and crispier white, e.g. BM simply white. I have regular ceiling height and my house is north-facing. Have just read somewhere that BM white dove might appear dirty on the ceiling. What say you? Thanks!

My preference is bright and crisp. Really cleans up a room.

if there is a chance od dullness, and you have not bothered to test it , using the other would seem practical.

I have not tested it on the ceiling, just trim. My walls will be mostly neutral or light-colored, so simply white will probably create a better contrast, right? What about super white? Too stark?

So I used simply white - it looks very nice. What about the doors and trims? Same color?

What colour are you painting your walls. If you can avoid white but paint your ceiling two tones lighter than your wall paint

I was using Edgecomb gray at 50% formula. It actually looks good with the white ceiling. Thanks for your input!
