Ceiling Paint Color


I need to make my bathroom ceiling seem higher than it is. Do I paint it white or light gray (same color of the walls)? Also half the bottom of the walls to the floor is done in yellow 6″ tiles

  1. In order to create the illusion of height I would recommend painting the ceiling white. This will increase the reflection of light and open up the space. If possible, I would also eliminate the grey painted walls and change these to white also. This will draw the eye upwards, making your ceiling seem higher. Removing the grey will leave you with a yellow and white colour palette that you can decorate and coordinate with, creating a bright and sunny room.

  2. Go with the light gray to make the ceiling seem higher than it is as the walls will flow better into the ceiling if it is the same color, with the white, people are more aware of the ceiling as it stands out more.

  3. To create the illusion of a higher ceiling in your bathroom, it is recommended to paint the ceiling white. White reflects light and gives the impression of more space and height. By using a light color on the ceiling, you draw the eye upward, making the room feel more expansive. If you paint the ceiling the same color as the walls, it can create a more unified and enclosed feeling, rather than enhancing the height of the space.

    Given that half of the walls are tiled in yellow 6-inch tiles, it is essential to consider how the ceiling color will interact with the existing design elements. White ceilings tend to complement a variety of colors and styles, providing a neutral backdrop that can help balance out bold or contrasting elements like the yellow tiles. In contrast, painting the ceiling the same color as the walls might make the space feel visually heavy or closed in, especially with the presence of the vibrant yellow tiles.
