new construction paint question
goatfarmerAugust 10, 2013
What is the best color to paint ceilings? This is a farmhouse, on a working goat dairy in the pacific northwest. I am thinking off white. Perimeter walls are lime plaster and interior drywall stick frame are mostly grey. Thanks Houzzers!

Most people paint their ceilings "ceiling white" to bounce more light around. In the northwest, that is definitely a concern but since the walls are white and gray, I would select an off-white that really resonated with the gray. If you will look at the lightest shade on the card of gray you selected, it will be a white that has the same undertone as the gray walls. In the master bedroom, I would suggest you go one shade deeper on the ceiling and use a high gloss paint - it will create drama and add that extra little something.

Sounds lovely - lucky goats.

Just a quick note on the bedroom paint; the high gloss paint will add drama but high gloss finishes will show any and all wall imperfections so beware.
