    Hi Marcie, definitely pick a paint that is high gloss so you can clean it easily, especially on your ceilings. As for color, definitely not white lol, I would pick a gray or blue depending on your preference.

  • My vote is for a gloss paint, easier to wash when needed.

    Use KILTZ primer first. Any gloss paint will work, and yes it easy to clean however, don't rule out semi-gloss. It also cleans up nicely.

    Oh, sorry. I didn't answer the part about color. Honestly, the color doesn't matter. You can still see how the smoke attaches itself to ceiling's and down the wall. It's more than the color as it looks as though the walls are wet, and has drip marks that look like paint. Yup. I know it sounds gross, but that's what happens no matter the color.

    Old gold. It will blend into the smoke residue.

  • probably something in the yellow family or with yellow undertones to hide the smoke discoloration that may happen.

    Thankyou all so much. Think I will try a nice yellow high gloss. Much appreciated as my father smokes an I do also although am smoking outside now tobacco roll up that he smokes seems to tarnish colour awful an haven’t had it painted that long I also would use a lot of candles and changed from Yankee to soya but still found those awfully smokey so using the heated plug in now with water an scented drops an so much better an also longer lasting scent

    Tobacco Brown or Nicatine Yellow? or White and let the smoke do it's worst.
