I was the director of maintenance and grounds keeping at a big housing authority for about 12 years until I retired three years ago. A lot of times the ceiling color will have to do with the type of lighting and the windows for natural lighting you have in the room. If you have good lighting and use floor lamps or wall lighting it probably won’t make a difference what the ceiling is. With poor lighting, the white ceiling will reflect the light around the room better. It also differs with the colors you use in the room comparing lighter to darker colors, lighter – less lighting with darker colors you need more lighting. Just another hint, most companies now make ceiling paint that is thicker so it won’t drip as badly. Hope this helps, just my two cents worth. Good luck !!! Mel
