The way in which painted ceiling ideas can completely change the way a space looks and feels is surprising, yet many people still assume that white is the only shade for their fifth wall. 

No matter what types of ceiling you have in your home, do consider how painting them could add a whole new dimension to the room — you can use colour or texture to make a space feel bigger, a low ceiling appear higher than it really is or just as a striking focal point to inject some character or personality.
