I did a lot of commercial painting using a brush, roller an airless and an HVLP. I thought of it as being a bit like fishing – mindless work, much of the time, which allowed you to do a lot of thinking.

That aside, a lot of places went with flat white ceiling because it hid a lot of imperfections, and there was no glare problem.

In my home, I went with eggshell because it’s far more scrubabble than flat paint. Scrub a bad flat white job and that glare is going to seem like a good deal passed up.

Regardless of what you do, don’t cheap out. It will cost you durability. Sometimes with calamity like results when you try to scrub it. An architect called for a specific paint and you couldn’t even touch it without damage to the paint job. He ate that one.

Anyway, if a room were all dark, it would look smaller and be hard to light, However, it could have a certain appeal, with the right decor.

The switching of wall and ceiling colors can make for more work and cost, but can pay off, hugely in effects.
