Dos & Don’ts of Painting Tray Ceilings

In this video, Erica Lugbill, owner of Lugbill Designs–an upscale residential remodeling and interior design firm in Chicago–discussed the dos and don’ts of painting a tray ceiling.

Tray ceilings come in all shapes and sizes and are oriented at different angles. So there’s no tried and true rule in painting a tray ceiling. For Erica, she always paints the top surface of the tray ceiling and depending on the angle. “If the tray is angled up, then I paint the angle portion also, then I leave the flat ceiling white,” says Erica.

If there’s a crown molding, always paint it trim white or stick to the color of the trim you have in the room e.g wood stain or a specific color. In the video, Erica also showed that she included a “90-degree portion that’s painted the wall color to emphasize the crown molding.”
