Paint is the easiest and most affordable way to transform nearly any element in a room, including the ceiling. Most people don’t consider doing anything different to the ceiling, normally choosing to leave it in builder white. This is perfectly fine, especially if you plan on putting your home on the market soon, but if you are looking for new ways to add some style to a space then getting creative with the ceiling is a good way to do that. Even a fresh coat of paint in a color other than white or beige can transform a space. If you are feeling really creative, you can branch out to using stencils, faux finishing, and patterns. Here are some ideas for painted ceilings that can inspire you for your own home.
