When it comes to paint color, you probably have never thought about using vibrant shades on your ceiling. But it's time to look up and look on the bright side! Expert designers suggest painting your ceiling in bold colors to create a one-of-a-kind look tailored to all of your decorating desires.

"Warm colors tend to advance, and cool colors recede, so if you are looking to visually raise your ceiling height, stick to cooler hues," Houzz.com reports. "On the other hand, if you have high ceilings and wish to make them feel lower—for a more intimate vibe—use a warm hue, such as red, orange or yellow."

Other tips for using color? Use various shades to strategically play up the assets of your room. Do you have a purple couch you'd like to show off? Paint your ceiling a shade of lilac so the furniture piece can pop. If you want to make a large room come together, try painting the wall space slightly below the ceiling. This gives a room a cozy, complete feel.

If you opt for a colored ceiling it's also best to keep the floor neutral to avoid clashing. Another way to add unity to your room is to match the color of your ceiling to the accent shade in your curtains or drapes. This works especially well if your curtains have patterns, such as bold stripes or geometric designs. A coat of ceiling paint will bring out the fun print. Half Price Drape's custom curtains and drapery can help you achieve this visual harmony.
