Deciding to paint your house can feel like a major task. Even more so, when you start contemplating whether or not you also have to buy ceiling paint.
First off, understand that if you have a basic ceiling that is smooth and in good shape, you can get away with using a flat white paint if you just want to freshen up the surface. It will cover the ceiling’s imperfections, and get the job done. The downside is that most non-ceiling paint happens to be thinner and will drip easily. This can create a huge mess if you’re not careful. If you do decide to go this route, take the time to properly cover your furniture and floors to prevent drips from damaging these surfaces. Also, make sure to wear safety glasses – you don’t want paint to get into your eyes –
When it comes to ceiling paint specifically, this type of paint is thicker and less prone to drip —hopefully making cleanup quicker – Also, most ceiling paints will fill in and cover hairline cracks and do a better job at hiding the imperfections in your ceiling than wall paint. Ceiling paint is a must if you have an older home with plaster ceilings.
So, if you are looking to hide minor ceiling issues, for the time being, the basic flat white paint might be the best option for now. But, if you are looking to cover up more visible imperfections, the actual thick ceiling paint is what you will want to use.
