Thinking about painting your ceiling the same color as the walls? Wondering if it will ACTUALLY make the room look bigger, or if that’s just too much of the same color for one space?

If you choose a dark color for the walls, then using it on the ceiling is a pretty bold move. (And if you’re a bold person, then this might be right up your alley!)

White is always a safe choice, especially with white walls, but there are definitely times when you might prefer to use color on the ceiling.

So, how do you determine whether you should paint the walls and ceiling all one color? I can’t give you a clear cut answer one way or another without seeing your particular space, but I can share some information with you to help simplify the decision making process.

Let’s go over the pros and cons of painting the ceiling the same color as your walls.


Here are a few more tidbits that I wanted to share about wall and ceiling colors.

If you don’t want to paint the ceiling and walls the same color, white isn’t your only option — there are lots of awesome spaces that have a bolder ceiling color.

One last note — if you want to paint the walls and ceiling with the same white color, go with a flat or matte finish on the ceiling (unless it’s a bathroom), satin or eggshell on the walls, and semi-gloss on any doors and trim that you’re painting.

This will make it a little more interesting without having to find different whites that work well together.

Final Thoughts

What do you think? Do you like when ceilings and walls are painted the same color? Or do you think ceilings should be painted in the standard “ceiling white”?

Personally, I feel that it depends on too many different factors to give you a clear answer. But hopefully I’ve been able to give you enough information to help you make a decision for your own space.

Remember, if you have a really small bathroom, a really large living area, or if your walls and ceilings have lots of angles, then you could likely benefit from painting them the same color. But if you have any comments or questions, please share them below!
