Color can make your ceiling higher or bring it down.

I once worked on a large master bedroom with an 8’ ceiling and the client wanted the room to look taller.  Solution:  We installed a molding on the ceiling around the room that was 8” from the wall .  We painted the walls and the ceiling up to the molding a medium-light color.  We then painted the ceiling a darker color.  The result was that the walls appeared to go right past the ceiling line and to the molding, giving the impression of a higher ceiling.
