Paint color technique for low ceiling basement
Jennifer Browning
May 15, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We just put in a master bedroom suite in our basement. It does have low ceilings though, and I was wondering what sort of painting strategies or colors I could use to make the ceilings appear taller and feel more spacious. The room sizes are big, and it has one large window and can lights. So the space is large and well lit, but with low ceilings. Any thoughts?

This is so helpful. I am hesitant to try the same color on ceiling and walls, but I have seen it recommended before. Anyone else done that with success?

If you type in the search box something like 'colored ceilings' or 'walls and ceiling same color' lots of photos come up that may inspire you to take the plunge :-) Don't forget to choose 'photos' from the pop-down menu in/next to the search box.

If the wall color isn't to dark use the wall color for the ceiling or take your wall color and cut it by 50% and use that on the ceiling
