Metal ceilings can provide elegance and beauty to any room. However, picking the perfect paint color to match your ceiling can seem like a rather daunting task. With so many colors, shades, and finishes to choose from, the possibilities are endless. This guide will help you pick the perfect paint color to match your metal ceiling.
Items To Consider When Choosing A Paint Color
- Atmosphere – Think about the type of mood that you a trying to set. Does the room need to feel formal, or is it for sociable purposes? If sociable is the case, you may want to consider warmer or brighter colors. For instance, neutral colors and deeper shades can create a formal mood, which can be a perfect complement to a metal ceiling in a dining room. To accentuate your metal ceiling within the bedroom and create a relaxing, peaceful environment, choose softer, cool colors.
- Lighting – How will lighting effect the colors you choose? Fluorescent lighting casts a sharp blue tone, while daylight, or natural light, provides the truest color. Incandescent bulbs allow yellows and warmer tones to flourish. Brighter colors used next to large windows may throw off your entire atmosphere, and the beauty of your metal ceiling may become lost.
- Trim Colors – Often, baseboards and other trim are white, or some shade of off-white. These may be good choices to brighten the room and compliment the ceiling. However, do not be afraid to try something bold. You will never know until you try, and the color wheel can be your best friend. Colors schemes can be tricky, but thinking outside the box can lead to an astounding atmosphere.
- The Finish Matters – Should the walls be glossy, flat, or have a satin finish? Paint samples can help you decide which finish to go with. Satin finishes can provide a certain elegance to the room, and along with your metal roof, could create an atmosphere perfect for any room. Gloss finishes can be easy to clean, which is good news for people with children, and flat finishes provide a dull, yet fashionable look.
You can mix and match. Or you can play with contrasting colors. You can also go with “like” colors. In the end, it is all about your imagination and how much you actually want to experiment.
