Should I paint my kitchen ceiling black?

26 Aug

I’m going to be re-painting my kitchen in September or October. I know I’ve been in my house for a while if one of the rooms actually needs a re-paint. I’d been planning on using basically the same colors (dark brown walls, light beige trim), and then one day I looked up. And I saw the white ceiling. It’s the last one in the house. I hate white ceilings. So I thought, “hey, you (meaning I) are getting a couple more light fixtures, why not paint it black. If you (me again) hate it, just paint over it.”

So that’s the plan. Here are some inspiration photos. Any thoughts?

    If you have high ceilings (and I am pretty sure you do), go for it! I think the inspiration photos are lovely and this would add some real panache to the space.

    And as you said, if you hate it, you only need a couple of coats of paint to change it.

    Might be a bit of a downer in the winter, as that room is already dark.
