Explore Your Bedroom’s Fifth Wall

When it comes to a bedroom paint color ideas, the ceiling is often overlooked. While classic white paint is a perennial favorite, a pop of ceiling color enhances a bedroom’s character. Here, Concord Ivory HC-12 is an interesting ceiling color choice paired with Metropolitan AF-690 on the lower panel insets and Barren Plain 2111-60 on the upper panels.

Especially in a small room or a room with a lower ceiling, lighter ceiling paint colors can make a room look larger and taller. We love Summer Shower 2135-60, Beacon Gray 2128-60, and Hollingsworth Green HC-141. Look for a ceiling color that is a lighter shade or slight variation of your wall color.

Here, the Smoke 2122-40-painted ceiling gives a sky-like energy to an otherwise off-white room.
