Get ready to the jazz up the space high above your head


Repainting a room is always a great idea because it's a step toward a bigger decor improvement—many homeowners consider full-cover paint jobs, some go for accent walls, but no one hardly ever thinks about the ceiling.

Go for simple prints 

If you’re not keen on going for a solid color, consider an easy pattern like stripes or polka dots if you're feeling more adventurous. Make sure to balance it out with neutral walls to avoid clashing colors. 

RL Tip: Don't forget to use 3M's Painter's Tape to help you follow straight lines. For a more affordable solution, masking tape works great too!

Choose a bold color 

If you want to grab people's attention from the moment they enter the room, choose a loud shade of blue-green to make a statement. You can also try combining a fiery red and a warm yellow if you're trying to break a monotony of a space.

Draw a mural 

If you feel like trying your hand at something a little more artsy, consider personalizing your ceiling with a painted scene. Feel free to go for any design you want—from landscapes to Mandala patterns—as long as it complements your existing decor and furniture.
