Contrasting ceiling paint for basement or not?
October 24, 2013
I am painting a basement rec room. The ceilings are mostly 8' tall except for the 2 ft. wide duct that runs along one wall the entire length of the room. It drops to 7' there. So, at the doorway to the room the ceiling is 7 feet. Would the room look larger if I painted the ceiling the same color as the walls or should I paint it white? If I should paint it white, should I also paint the dropped part of the ceiling white? Thanks in advance for your comments.
