Who says color should be limited to walls? Elevate your space by selecting just the right hue for your ceiling!
From calming greens to bold blues and plenty of shades in between, the ceiling color you choose can make a room feel brighter, cover surface imperfections, create a cozy space or even make a dramatic style statement. Keep reading to see which “fifth wall” colors we look up to the most.
Capture Historic Charm with Billiard Green
A strong, historic color such as Billiard Green on your ceiling is an impressive way to introduce classic contrast and intrigue to brighter, airier spaces like sunrooms. The rich shade of green works particularly well if your space has warm textures like wood and leather or earth-colored elements such as terra cotta floor tiling. Accenting the bold green with subtle hints of a softer color like Jazz Age Coral adds playful charm to a room grounded in historic style.
Keep it Crisp with Extra White
It’s the classic standard for a reason. Opting for a white ceiling hue like Extra White means that almost any wall color you choose will pair harmoniously. Another plus: white ceilings reflect a lot of light, which can make your space feel brighter and more open.
Embrace the Calm of Quietude
Take a deep breath in and out while you allow the cool, light green hue of Quietude to bring a sense of rejuvenation to your space. Try this green color on the ceiling in places where you can unwind — think sipping coffee on a welcoming, walled-in porch or taking a luxurious soak in a bright bathroom. For the wall color, Quietude pairs well with the warm, sun-splashed charm found in Dover White.
Get Cozy with Tricorn Black
Tricorn Black brings a tall ceiling back down to the ground. While white ceilings tend to make a room feel larger, choosing this never-boring black makes a strong, purposeful connection between floor, walls and ceiling — perfect for a comfy bedroom or an intimate living room. As an added bonus, since Tricorn Black is a true black, it will perfectly pair with any undertone for your walls and trim.
Go Bold with Offbeat Green
Prefer to march to the beat of your own drum? A surprising shade like Offbeat Green can make anyone look twice. Going bold still needs some ground rules, so try to complement a daring ceiling color like Offbeat Green with a deeper, more saturated hue that sits next to it on the color wheel such as a blue green like Starboard. Embrace your inner maximalist by pairing this stunning color with plenty of eclectic artwork, varying textures and mixed materials.
