Make rooms appear bigger whilst going for an on trend look

Statement Ceilings

We show you an on-trend idea of painting your ceiling, walls and skirting boards all the same colour.

Don’t neglect your ceilings – an emerging  trend this season is painting your ceiling the same colour as your walls and your skirting boards. This gives a modern contemporary look which is quite easy to achieve.

This can be done with dark colours or light colours -  we really like this hall and stairs look below using our shade, Monday Blues. It really helps accentuate high ceilings or lower ceilings look more stretched, making smaller rooms appear larger.

Add extras, such as painting your entire radiator to really get that on trend overall  finished look. Our Hall & Stairs range can be used on walls, woodwork and metalwork.


Creating this look with dark colours such as our Saturated look from our trends can really add a wow factor to your home


Interior designer, Joao Botelho used some of our Period Collection to create this look. We love the use of darker shades, and especially love dark skirting boards. Colours used in images are Steam Engine and Pier View.

Steam Engine and Pier View are emulsion colours used on the walls and ceilings – and these were tinted into Crown Fastflow Satin at a local Crown Decorating centre so that we could achieve the ceiling to floor look and take this to the skirting boards.
