My living room and 3 of my bedrooms have wood stained brown ceilings. Now I was told many times to paint them white and then was told that it will bring the value of the house down because it is stained natural wood. I am trying to find out what color I should paint the walls, I like the colors of Melony or Peachy beige but I can’t pick a color, also should I keep the ceilings stained brown or paint them white? Please Help!
I think that you should paint the ceilings white, so that you can then choose a neutral color to paint the walls. If you are trying to sell your home, choosing a neutral color can appeal to more potential buyers, therefore increasing your chance to sell. If you are not planning on selling, I would still paint the ceiling white because it would open up the rooms and make it feel larger. As for the "melony or peachy beige" colors, my walls are painted a light-green melon color and I love it (however, I have white ceilings). Ultimately, I think I would pick whichever colors you like the most. Because you will see the colors more than anyone else, choosing colors that you like seems to be the most logical thing.
I have never seen wood stained ceilings! That is so unique. I would definitely leave them that color. I would think melony or peachy would be too bright of a color. In my head I am seeing a dark red! I think it would really make the wood stained ceiling looks amazing. It would also make the room feel really cozy.
