False ceiling colour combinations for your home

Let your house dazzle with these fabulous colour combinations for false ceilings. Rake a look at our designer-approved false ceiling colour combinations for yout home.

False ceilings like Christian wedding dresses are almost always white. Tradition? Perhaps. But do you really want to go down that oft-taken road? Yes, there is an unparalleled elegance and simplicity in white. And yes, white ceilings are modern and minimalist. However, they aren’t the only option when it comes to deciding the ceiling colour combination in the bedroom or the living room. An aesthetically thought out ceiling paint color can provide an additional element of visual appeal to any living space without taking away from the elements on the ground.

Here are some unique and stunning false ceiling colour combination that you can consider while designing or renovating your dream living space.

False Ceilings In Regal Gold

We’re not talking shiny shimmery gaudy gold here – gone are the maharaja’s palaces of yore. But there’s no denying the warm glow that emanates from a beautiful matt golden-hued ceiling colour design. Gold is a neutral false ceiling colour choice which would look fabulous in a bedroom or living room. This contemporary false ceiling is painted in a textured elegant shade of gold that is accentuated by the hidden lighting.

A Light Mauve False Ceiling Colour To Match With Your Walls

Here is the middle path when you want to go with white but don’t really want to go with white (if you know what we mean). You can choose a false ceiling colour combination that is a lighter shade of the wall colour. Diluting the wall colour with white will give you the exact perfect shade to complement the walls without creating huge blocks of bright colours that hurt the eyes. 

This bedroom with different shades of mauve on the ceiling, wardrobe doors, and headboard is so pleasantly purple. There’s no feeling of a colour overdose here as the shades all vary slightly and the effect leaves one with a sense of coherence and harmony.
