|I want to paint my ceiling over. There are so many different colors out there. What color should I use?|
|There a standard color called "ceiling white" I would never be as adventurous as to paint my ceilings an actual color!|
|Me too. Boring old white.
Although, Mom wallpapered her bathroom ceiling with cloud wallpaper and it was pretty cool.
|I have used the ceiling white before. I hate it. I like to use super white flat wall paint. It seems to go on smoother, covers better and much less spattering.
I have also painted the ceiling and walls the same color (per order of the interior decorator). It was a light beige color throughout. When all done, the ceiling actually looked like a different color! The way the light hits the walls and ceilings is different so the ceiling looked much much lighter than the walls!
|I have use the Benjamin Moore Muresco Celing White and it is water thin and doesn't cover worth a hill o beans.
The difference between ceiling paint and regular latex wall paint is it is made to spatter less. That's what they say.
I say, use a flat white wall paint, and be careful and put down tarps if needed. I'll never use the ceiling white again unless I have to match something.
