The false ceiling colour can enhance the look and feel of the interior of any home.  We tend to overlook this one element that can convey the perfect balance of luxury and simplicity - The fifth wall or the false ceiling. False ceilings are not just the second layer of ceiling below the roof but an element if designed well can make them look elegant from every nook and corner of the room. Let’s explore the best false ceiling colour combinations for your home.

1.    Go Bold with black and grey

When you are opting to paint your room walls with dark shades like black and graphite grey, why not opt for them as false ceiling paint colours. Modern false ceilings painted black or dark grey make a scenic and close-knit emotion in a room. Since these false ceiling design colour combinations can make the ceiling feel more downward, houses with high ceilings or plenty of natural sunlight are an amazing pick to experiment with such intense ceiling paint colours. However, if you believe painting the walls with similar shades will make your room look dark, keep the walls white or off-white.

6.    Darker colours for your false ceiling

Dark colour combinations such as navy blues, charcoal greys or chocolate-browns are excellent for rooms with white walls as they can form a panoramic contrast. When going for such a colour combination, it is best to pick a shade that is at least a few hues darker than that of the wall colour for a refined, elegant look. A darker paint colour forms the illusion of a lower roof, even if it is notably high. If a minimalist design is in play, the kitchen can be a great place to experiment with. Deeper shades on the false ceiling, when paired with appropriate wall colours in a lighter style, also help to form a close-knit, cosy aura in a room. They are an ideal alternative as false ceiling colours for bedrooms, where comfort and cosiness is important.

Give a contrasting multi-coloured touch to your false ceiling to get away from a dull look of the room, giving a playful ambience . Adding colourful false ceiling panels brings a room of brightness to any type of interiors.

8.    Try the contrasting wooden and white false ceiling colours

The wooden and white/cream colour combination for the false ceiling is not the only speciality that captures the gaze in a contemporary living room. In addition to boosting the overall room aesthetics, this false ceiling colour combination and design that incorporates sleek wooden panels also offer ample openness to the space.
