Would a white ceiling give the idea of more height?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
A white ceiling may give the illusion of more height, but would show many more imperfections in the ceiling above, such as the duct work, wiring, floor boards, etc. The darker ceiling color tends to hide these items and allow the focus to be below the ceiling.
There is no right or wrong color for the ceiling, it is just determining the trade-offs involved. Hope that helps. Rick
