5 Reasons Why You Should Paint Your Ceilings
Consider the ceiling as your fifth wall that needs equal attention, similar to the four walls of your space. It is an integral part of your home, isn’t it? Imagine how your home would look if there are no ceilings. Additionally, the fifth wall should also be painted for the following reasons:
1. Makes your room complete.
Imagine entering somebody’s home without a painted ceiling. How does that make you feel? Do you have that feeling that the owner did not bother to check if the house is completely finished? Painting the ceiling presents a sense of completing the interior of your home.
2. Enhances the appearance of your home.
Choosing the color that would suitably complement or contrast the other colors in your specific space would enhance the appearance of your home. Contrasting colors are perfect for bedrooms, especially if walls are painted with a lighter color. Visualize looking up at the dark sky at night while laying down on your bed, even with the lights on, to get inspiration.
3. Not only for you but also for your toddlers.
Painting your toddler’s ceiling with dark colors and putting on glow-in-the-dark images of stars and planets makes a fancy planetarium for them to enjoy during bedtime.
4. Show your style.
If you have chosen a specific theme for your home, painting your ceiling is definitely a must to achieve and fulfill the look and style that you want.
5. Protection for your ceiling.
Keeping your house clean is important, right? That certainly includes making sure your ceiling is clean and is prevented from developing molds. Choose paints that can protect your ceiling, especially those in your bathroom and kitchen areas. These are damp areas that are at risk of mold. There are paints that are specifically manufactured as anti-mold products. This type of paint is also highly recommended for ceilings in air-conditioned rooms.
