Cheryl McInnis asked 10 years ago

I just purchased Behrs paint for the bathroom and it has a primer in it. I was wondering if I could paint the ceiling with the exact paint that I bought or if it would look funny? I have never painted a ceiling before and I have heard that it is in style so I thought I would try. Our bathroom has never been painted.

Yes you can. The paint is fine on walls and ceilings. The same color on the ceiling is a good look as long as the color isn't too dark. A lighter ceiling color can add to the size of a room by making the ceiling appear taller. One way to doing this is to choose a color 2 shades lighter than the walls.
