In home media rooms, where the primary purpose of the room is watching movies and television, painting the ceiling dark can enhance the home theater effect. Movie theaters are always dark, making the movie screen the focus of the space.
Can I paint the ceiling and walls the same color?
Another option is to paint the walls and the ceiling the same color.

The third option is to paint the ceiling a color that contrasts with the wall color.
Why paint a white ceiling?
