I recently worked with a home owner choosing paint colors for her guest powder room. Since we were working with a lighter color, one suggestion I made was to paint the ceiling the same color as the walls:
I have found painting the ceilings in small spaces such as bathrooms, powder rooms and small spaces the same color as the walls, the line will blur where the wall and ceiling meets and avoid cutting up the space.
Depending on the colors you choose, this can serve to make the space larger or smaller. For example, light ceilings and walls make a space feel open and airy, while a dark or rich color on ceilings and walls brings everything in and make it cozy.
This design tip really works. It doesn’t make the ceiling seem higher, it’s just the way the whole color envelops you, rather than being broken up visually. It makes the boundaries of the room disappear.
This is especially true where there is no molding around the ceiling.
