Default painting ceiling with non white color

I an painting the bathroom walls with light blue color which I got an idea from pic. If I paint the ceiling with the same color do you think t is gonna loom inferior?. Most ceiling I have seen is mostly white despite wall color however if I have to paint with white that is going to be a whole lot of work.

Try it blue and if you don't like it, think about re-painting white or a few shades lighter.

Many new designers will add a 25% of the wall tint color to a white ceiling paint, which gives it a nice, non-white color.

There are no rules. Give it a try and see what you think it’s just paint. I painted my ceiling in my home theater flat black a couple months ago, that’s as far from white as you can get.

Initially it looked much more stronger and darker than other rooms I painted and I kinda felt bad about it initially. However I put the lighting and mirror and some other hardwares it is actually looking much better now. I attached the picture below but trust me it looks much better and lighter than pics. In the pics the color looks much deeper and blue. Bottom line is I dont think I am regretting at all. I thought about repainting with lighter colors but I am glad I did not.

I notice the counter top does not mix well with the paint color so I am thinking later on to re-do the counter top with onyx granite counter top paint.

Will be re-doing the bathtub and its tiles too.

Looks nice to me and as long as you like it that’s really all that matters.
