Decorate With Boldly Painted Contrast Ceilings


Statement ceilings are a huge trend in 2018 and the contrast painted ceiling is gaining in popularity. A stunning contrast ceiling color can cast a lovely ambiance over a room, transforming it instantly into a space that will wow visitors and definitely reflect your unique personality.

Homeowners wishing to bring grandeur and life to an otherwise "white box" space are searching for ways to make their ceilings pop. Ceilings are frequently boring and bland, painted white to blend in or disappear. People think that by painting a ceiling white they are making a safe choice that will make their ceiling unnoticeable. However the tide has changed and today people want to define their ceilings with a little bit more imagination. The contrast painted ceiling is a great way to do just that.

Adding a little style to the ceiling by painting it a contrasting color not only enhances the decor of the room but also gives everyone a reason to look up. And because the ceiling is a significant surface area, why not have some fun with it? In other words, it's time to give the ceiling some style.

I am not going to lie to you and say that I like all the contrast ceilings I am seeing. This look has to be done right and is one trend that can go south on you quickly. I suggest bringing in a professional if you are serious.

I have gathered some images of contrast painted ceilings to show you how fresh and energetic this trend and be. Also they might push you to try something totally different if you are considering a redo. The statement ceiling is dominating the design world so now is the time.Enjoy!!



Let's face it, white ceilings definitely lack visual interest.  For more impact painting the ceiling a totally contrasting color adds character and will certainly be more memorable. If you don't like the brighter colors we are seeing today, choosing a darker color is a great idea.

There is no question that painting ceilings with vibrant colors that contrast with a room's walls is an emerging and exciting new trend.

When a ceiling can be one of the most definitive elements in a space, why not add character, style and individuality.


In today's interiors ceilings are part of the decor...... not boring or ignored. Painting a ceiling white to make it unnoticeable is no longer rule of thumb.


If the surrounding walls in your room are neutral, you might opt for a bold ceiling color. However, do this cautiously. The striking contrast between the wall and ceiling should be tied together by furniture, or in this case artwork, that is coordinated with the ceiling.


When done right, your room will exude a striking and beautiful harmony.


Have fun with this trend and cover the whole ceiling in a uniform shade lively enough to command your attention.

A contrasting dark color lowers the ceiling and makes the room smaller and cozier.

A light color on your contrast ceiling will make the room seem larger and more grand. High-gloss lacquer is also an option that will even brighten your ceiling color and give it more energy.


Painting the ceiling dark creates a clean, bold contrast. Pair that with layers of warm texture and you will have created a space that feels very sophisticated and intimate. Another plus is how it can conceal unsightly ceilings.

The key to using a bold or dark color on the ceiling, without the space becoming cave-like, is to make sure you have adequate lighting or limit the adjacent wall colors to a light hue.
