A satin or semi-gloss paint is even easier to clean, but will show off a lot of the ceiling’s flaws.
If your ceiling is perfectly smooth, satin or semi-gloss are suitable options.
For a popcorn ceiling or a surface with numerous dips or flaws, a matte ceiling or wall paint is a great choice.
What color should a kitchen ceiling be?
Light blue is a good go-to color for kitchen ceilings. Reminiscent of the sky, it feels light and airy. If you have a really large kitchen and very high ceilings, you can go with a more bold hue such as dark gray or navy blue.
How do you paint a greasy kitchen ceiling?

What is the best way to paint a ceiling?
Paint the Ceiling
- If you’re not going to paint the walls, apply painter’s tape around the edges for a crisp line.
- When it’s time to roll, use a low nap roller for smooth ceilings, and a 1/2-inch or 3/4-inch nap for textured ceilings.
- First, moisten the roller with a wet towel to help the paint load.
How do you clean a kitchen ceiling before painting?
Fill a bucket with a mixture of 2 tablespoons of vinegar per 1 quart of hot water. Vinegar is a natural degreaser, but adding more vinegar to the water solution can damage flat paint. Add a squirt of dishwashing soap — the kind you use for hand washing your dishes, not in the dishwasher.
What color to paint the ceiling to make the room look bigger?
The trick to effectively opening up a small space, however, is to keep the color contrast between the walls and ceilings to a minimum. For example, a dark blue wall with a white ceiling may not work to enlarge the space, but pale yellow walls with a cream or off-white ceiling will feel light, airy and larger.
Are white ceilings out of style?
White ceilings are often the best choice for a room. White overhead tends to disappear, so your attention focuses on the walls and furnishings. A white ceiling also offsets intense wall color: boldly colored walls look crisp and sharp, and the ceiling feels higher.
Do you paint the ceiling first or last?
If you’re painting an entire room, first paint the ceiling, then the walls. It’s also usually better to paint large areas like walls before repainting the trim; because you’ll work more quickly when covering open areas, this can result in roller spatters, overspray and occasional errant brushstrokes.
