We like to talk about how important it is to have a roof over your head, but I feel like we might be better off talking about a ceiling over our heads; after all, that’s what we look up at most of the time. Given this, the ceiling is somewhat neglected in the overall home aesthetic; how often do you clean your ceiling? Admittedly, the ceiling undergoes a lot less wear and tear than the rest of the house, but having an aesthetically pleasing ceiling is definitely an important part of having an aesthetically pleasing home. You want to paint your ceiling, but what’s involved?
Well, the first thing you have to consider when painting a ceiling is gravity. Paint, as you know, is pretty liquid, and if you’re putting a particularly watered-down paint on the ceiling, you can expect a lot of it to end up on your floor, or the faces of the people painting. That’s why there’s specially formulated ceiling paints with high viscosity; experienced Winnipeg painters will use these paints to avoid making a mess in your house!
A lot of people will want to paint their ceilings, but worry because they have old stipple or popcorn ceilings that have undergone damage or wear. With Madani Group, you have access to professional stipple and popcorn ceiling repair services, so we can have the textures in your ceiling looking incredible before we paint them in any colours you might want!
“Any colour I want”, you might be thinking, “but wouldn’t I just want white”? Well, dear reader, let me tell you: you might want white, but you can have so much more. Your ceiling can act as a brilliant pseudo-accent wall in whatever room you like. You can have a navy blue ceiling, or a bright orange ceiling; anything your heart desires! Figure out the overall colour scheme of the room and create a ceiling accent; you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the amazing effect it creates! One of my friends, the mother of a young boy, painted her son’s ceiling a midnight blue, then painted glow-in-the-dark stars on the ceiling, to create a night sky every time he goes to sleep! Definitely one of the cuter projects I’ve ever heard of.
You might be a bit unsure as to whether or not you should paint your ceiling a non-white colour; white is totally fine, but if you’re looking for inspiration, check out this article of 5 beautifully painted ceilings. Whether or not you’re going for a colourful ceiling look, if it’s been awhile since your ceiling was painted and you’re starting to see the effects of wear, it’s probably time to paint it again. Remember, paint isn’t just aesthetically pleasing; it acts to protect surfaces from the elements. You’ve worked hard to get a ceiling over your head, so don’t neglect it; it keeps your head dry, so keep it looking beautiful!
