Black Ceiling Bathroom

Fiddlehead Design Group, LLC 1. To echo other elements in the room. If there’s a lot of black elsewhere in the room, a black ceiling can tie things together and create a unified look. Atmosphere Interior Design Inc. 2. To emphasize trim. Got some awesome millwork? Make it pop by painting the surrounding surfaces black. McGill Design Group Inc. 3. To make a ceiling look lower. High ceilings always sound good. But in reality, they can make a space feel cold and imposing. Black paint will make the ceiling feel lower without sacrificing space. Jessica Helgerson Interior Design 4. To make a ceiling look taller. Sounds like a contradiction, right? But when you can’t see the boundaries of a room, it can appear bigger. This is especially true if you paint the tops of the walls black as well. Jamie Laubhan-Oliver 5. To add drama. Take away the furnishings and finishes in this room, and you’ve got a pretty humble plasterboard box. The black ceiling adds architectural interest where none existed and makes the space feel far more interesting. Martha O’Hara Interiors 6. Because the rest of the room is black and white. Chaplin, houndstooth, The New Yorker — some things just look better in black and white. In this case the black ceiling is a nice echo of the black floor, and the stringent motif makes the few touches of color pop. Ryan Duebber Architect, LLC 7. To conceal a mess. It can be tough to hide all the ductwork in a basement ceiling. Covering it with drywall can rob you of precious headroom (not to mention money). An inexpensive solution is to paint the whole thing black. It won’t eliminate the problem entirely, but it’ll make the mechanics far less prominent without lowering the ceiling’s height. Philip Nimmo Design Philip Nimmo Design 8. Because the walls are black. If you’re going to take the plunge and paint your walls black, do you really want to wimp out on the ceiling? The bedroom here is dramatic and supremely sexy, but it wouldn’t have worked half as well without the black ceiling. The same holds true for this bath. Since bathrooms are self-contained spaces, and people don’t usually spend a great deal of time in them, they’re an excellent place to try something a little bit daring. Griffin Enright Architects 9. To define an area. It can be hard distinguishing one space from another within an open floor plan. A black ceiling can do the trick, without the hassle of room dividers or area rugs. Bagnato Architects 10. To draw attention to a view. Sure, this view would be beautiful even if the ceiling were white. But notice how the black surface draws your eyes toward the vista, kind of like a red carpet unfurling in front of you? michelle williams interiors 11. Because you’re a rebellious teenager. I know — I said that black ceilings are not just something a rebellious teenager would do. But that doesn’t mean a rebellious teenager couldn’t do it. Whether your adolescent craves Dr. Dre or Richard Avedon, black ceilings are a great complement to posters and photographs, elevating them to gallery-worthy status.More: See 5 great black and white homes

Black Ceiling Bathroom

Mold spores will grow in damp, humid conditions. Showers and bathtubs tend to produce steam, which rises to the ceiling and settles there in poorly ventilated bathrooms. It is rare that a ceiling gets dried or that it is exposed to sunlight, so spores begin to grow. To avoid the accumulation of mold spores, it is vital to circulate the air when the shower or bath is being used, especially if the weather is hot and humid. Be sure to open any windows in the bathroom when you are showering, even if it is just slightly. A bathroom ceiling fan or room vent would reduce a great deal of the moisture in the room. Another solution would be to consider using a mold-resistant paint and covering the entire ceiling for protection.
