Warm Colours False ceiling & warm colours

Shades of brown, red and orange exude energy and warmth. Pairing them with a false ceiling colour in a complementary tone or a lighter shade can create a harmonious balance.

For example, a warm-toned paint colour like brown paired with a cream or off-white design of false ceiling in living room can create a cosy and inviting atmosphere, as seen in the above photograph.

You could consider the following warm paint colours to match your false ceiling:

BUTTERED TOAST (7D1566) is a warm colour that can add a cosy and comforting atmosphere to your living room.

When paired with a complementary false ceiling in a soft off-white or cream hue can provide a contrast to the warm walls.

CHERRY PIE (1A0363) is a rich and earthy red colour that adds a touch of elegance to your living room. A black false ceiling can create a striking visual impact when paired with the rich red tone.

APRICOT SERENADE (2D0227) is an inviting shade of orange that creates a vibrant atmosphere. A light grey false ceiling can provide a modern and contemporary feel while still complementing the warm tones of the orange.

The above-mentioned warm colours, when paired thoughtfully with a complementary false ceiling design for hall will infuse your living room with a sense of energy and vitality.

Cool ColoursFalse ceiling designs & cool colours

Blues, greens and purples have a calming and soothing effect. When paired with a false ceiling in a similar cool-toned hue or a contrasting lighter shade, they can create a visually stunning and serene environment.

For instance, a light blue paint colour paired with a pale grey or a simple false ceiling design for hall in white shade can lend a sense of tranquility to a living area.

Recommendations From Berger Colour Catalogue:

THE BIG BLUE (5D1078) is a soft and ethereal shade of blue that brings a sense of calmness to the space. A white or off-white false ceiling would complement the soft and ethereal blue shade.

SUMMER SALAD (4D0886) is a refreshing and rejuvenating hue that adds a touch of nature to your living room. A light green or mint green false ceiling can enhance the refreshing shade of green on the rest of the walls.

PETITE LAVENDER (5D0299) is a soothing purple that creates a serene and dreamy ambience. To complement the delicate purple, a white or off-white false ceiling would be a suitable choice.

Shades of white, beige and grey paired with a false ceiling in a similar neutral tone or a contrasting shade can create an elegant and sophisticated look.

For example, a crisp white colour paired with a white false ceiling can create a contemporary and minimalist feel in your living room.

Recommendations From Berger Colour Catalogue:

FABULOUS WHITE (7P0185) is a warm and inviting off-white shade that works well as a neutral backdrop in any room. It pairs beautifully with a false ceiling in a slightly deeper white tone for a subtle contrast.

ORGANIC IVORY (7P0189) is a gentle and sophisticated beige hue that adds warmth and depth to a space. This shade can be combined with a false ceiling in a lighter beige tone to create a harmonious and elegant atmosphere.

SCALLION (7P0187) is a versatile grey shade that can create a modern and sleek look. Pair it with a false ceiling in a similar grey tone for a cohesive and contemporary aesthetic.

Playing With Patterns And TexturesFalse Ceiling Design Patterns

If you do not fancy plain solid colours, you can also introduce patterns and textures to create visual interest and make a statement on your false ceiling.

Patterns and textures can add depth, dimension and a unique personality to your living room. Consider incorporating geometric patterns or wooden elements into your false ceiling design. Geometric patterns are a fantastic way to add a modern and artistic touch to your living room. Think about incorporating a grid pattern or even a bold chevron design in contrasting colours. These patterns can draw the eye upward, adding a sense of height to the room.

Remember, when incorporating patterns and textures, it’s important to strike a balance. If you choose a bold pattern for your false ceiling, keep the walls relatively simple to avoid overwhelming the space.


In conclusion, by carefully selecting paint colours that complement the false ceiling, you can create a harmonious and visually appealing space that reflects your personal style.
