I am totally crushing on this new trend of painted ceilings! Painting your ceiling the non-traditional white can be the absolute perfect pinch of spice your home has been looking for. It’s creative, fun, and most importantly, easy. I have always said and will continue to say, paint is the easiest and cheapest way to transform your home. I have 4 examples of painted ceilings to share with you today and my thoughts!

You may be surprised that anyone would want to paint their ceiling black in fear of making the space feel too small or dark. However, painting your ceiling black not only gives your room a chic feel, it also can help take an overwhelming amount of space and make it feel much cozier. This trend does extremely well in monochrome styled homes.

Hallways are absolutely perfect for this trend! Do you have a hallway in your home that no matter what you do to it, it remains a bit…. um, boring? Paint that ceiling a fun color and boom, you finally have a hallway worth standing in!

Another great spot for a colorful ceiling is your children’s playroom. Why not make the playroom even more playful with a fun pop of color on the ceiling? This room may be a bit busy for my taste as I always believe less is more. However, what is great about this space is that they used their orange ceiling color as the central accent and carried it throughout the room.

Finally, if you have beams on your ceiling, painting a color in between will instantly give your ceiling a fun design. If white beams are a bit busy for you and aren’t your thing, don’t be afraid to cover those bad boys up with the same color. Covering the beams with the same color will give your ceiling more dimension without the added design.
