    Sure since it is a light color, but if you sell - most people prefer a white ceiling and ceiling paint is usually semi-gloss.

    Only if you want to! There are no rules about this---- white ceilings are the traditional way to paint, but I like extending the wall color to the ceiling for two reasons--- first, it is easier to do the job since you don't have to tape anything off. Second, it keeps the color flowing throughout the room so there is no break.
  • Yes, go for it! Lots of light does matter and as long as you choose a light enough shade, I think it would look wonderful. I know someone that added glitter to the ceiling when doing this, not a lot, just enough to have a slight twinkle effect. I absolutely love it. Since it is a small room, I do not think people will balk about it if you decide to sell. Give them a $100 credit, let them repaint the ceiling if they do not like it.

    I like to paint all my ceilings the same color as the walls, first off I cannot afford all colors of paint and I'm a light colored girl, meaning I don't go for very dark walls, IE red/blue, second off except in the bath room very light blue walls and white ceiling...Its your house paint how you want to...
