Painting Tips For Rooms with High Ceilings

Painting Tips For Rooms with High Ceilings


Everyone craves extra space, but what do you do when you have extra space that is vertical? Vaulted Ceilings can pose some unique decorating challenges.


A room with high ceilings can look quite terrible if not properly addressed. It can look dull and unfinished. In order to avoid this, you need to blend the upper and lower areas by drawing the eye upwards.  


Here are a few painting tips to take into consideration when painting your vaulted ceilings.

Painting a High Ceiling

When you paint a ceiling, it has a dramatic impact on the look and feel of the space. Choosing a lighter color than the walls will make your room feel bigger. A darker color on the ceiling will make the space feel cozy, comfortable and compact. 

Add trim with a high ceiling

Painting Tips For Rooms with High Ceilings

Adding trim around the perimeter of the room, below the crown molding, adds another place to use color with your high ceiling. 

The trim and crown should be the same color and gives you more freedom to play around with different tones of color above or below the trim.
