To paint all the sofit or not?

merelliaSeptember 12, 2013
Hi, all!

This is a photo of the living room in the house I just bought (items pictured are those of the previous owner), and which I'm about repaint all over. My question is: should I paint the bottom of the soffit (textured like the ceiling) the same color as the wall beneath it, or not? I feel that the stripe of white soffit-bottom is distractingly eye-catching, but I'm not sure if painting all the soffit the same color would work, if there's a texture difference.

Just to clarify: I'm planning to paint the side of the soffit the wall color, and its just the soffit-bottom of which I'm unsure. (I think if I painted all the soffit the ceiling color, the room's ceiling would look lower?)

That is really strange, but I have to agree with you.......when I look at your pic, all I see is the white stripe right there. I hope it will work to paint it the wall color.

I agree with you, it will definitely look better painted the wall color.
