    Default Low ceiling

    here's my problem. my house only has 7'2" ceiling on second floor. MBR is 12 x 20 but feel very claustrophobic. Any paint tricks to make ceiling seem higher?

    We have the same low ceilings in our house. Keep your colors light, definitely paint your ceiling white. If you are inclined to wallpaper, vertical stripes will give a sense of height; stay away from papers that are too busy. If you like the wainscotting look, put the darker color on the bottom, lighter color on top. Don't use a border next to your ceiling, it will "bring the ceiling down". Hope this helps. BWoolf.
