Ceilings And Trim

Hide or highlight your ceilings or trim with paint.

Small Rooms

Small Rooms

Covering all the surfaces of a room in one color makes it feel larger.

  • Choose a warm and rich, or soft and soothing hue, and envelope the space in it, including the ceiling.

  • One unified color fades defining lines, which enhances the coziness of the space and makes it feel larger.

Man Caves

Man Caves

Team colors or earthy tones can create a clubhouse atmosphere.

  • These spaces are usually separate from the rest of the house (i.e. garage, game room, media room) so the color here doesn't need to match the rest of the house.
  • Choose a sporty green, earthy brown or favorite team color to create a clubhouse atmosphere.
