A how-to guide to painting your ceiling like a Pro
If you are thinking about a DIY ceiling painting project, you are probably asking the following questions: How do I pick a color? What tools do I need to get started? How can I paint something this high, anyway? We have covered with one of our latest painting fixtures Dubai UAE.
We’ve put together a quick “how-to” for ceiling painting, including some design inspirations to make your job a whole lot easier. That means if you’re looking to paint a ceiling white, a sunny yellow, or even a moody black, you’ll have the knowledge available to get the job done the right way.
Selection of the perfect painting color
Everyone loves a classic white ceiling. Since white reflects light, a well-colored white ceiling can make a room look brighter and larger than it really is. A subtle white like Chantilly Lace OC-65 will brighten up any kitchen, foyer, or bedroom. However, if you’re considering your ceiling, why stop at white? Colored ceilings just might be the new modern “accent wall” you’ve been dreaming about.
The ceilings don’t always get much love and they get the typical white flat finish. Here at Janovich, however, we consider them another wall to pour your creativity onto. Painting your “fifth wall” a new shade can add dimension and personality to a room. The color you choose will be a mood setter for the room.
A pop of light color in a ceiling and trim room can make your home feel airy, breezy, and fresh as a sunny sky. Try the Constellation AF-540 if you want to emulate a vibrant clear blue sky. If you have brightly colored walls, using a shade or two lighter on your ceiling can be a clever way to open up the room while staying within the color scheme.

If you want to show drama in your study, bedroom, or entertainment area choose a rich dark color for your ceiling. Just like the night sky, a dark ceiling can make your room look endless. A ceiling painted in dramatic Cinnamon 2174-20 Red will make any sophisticated study look bolder, while a rich Space Black 2119-10 will bring intimacy to a master bedroom.
Do not exclude even the brightest colors that you have not necessarily imagined in a ceiling before. How about a quirky yellow ceiling to make a once-musty room look sunny and bright? Try Banana Yellow 2022-40 in the kitchen for an appetite-inducing twist. If you’re painting a bathroom ceiling, you have the perfect opportunity to get creative! Fun colors can add a playful touch, like Benjamin Moore’s Pink Taffy 2075-50. The possibilities stop only in your imagination.
STEP ONE: CLEAN THE ROOM AND USE THE FLUFFY FABRICS
Clear the room. No matter how careful you are, painting the ceiling will inevitably lead to paint getting on something. Even professional painters cover the floor since paint stains are virtually unavoidable. We recommend dropcloths for things you absolutely cannot move. Consider the canvas on the actual floor to prevent slipping if you are going to use a ladder.
STEP TWO: FILM PAINTER IS YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND
Grab your painter’s tape and tape off the crown molding, corners, or anywhere you don’t want the paint to run. Don’t forget to account for lightweight fixtures like pot lights and ceiling fans, if you are unable to remove or loosen any of the ceiling you will need to tape them off.
STEP THREE: EXPANSION POLES & PAINT ROLLERS
You can probably do most of your painting from the ground if your ceilings are lower than 10 feet. Try Best Painters Ajman UAE for best painting Experience. If you’re considering a ceiling with a paint roller, a handy extension pole is key here. Even high ceilings can be handled with the right extension poles.
