ceiling color and paint type.

October 13, 2015
Hi, I am planning to paint my old timber ceiling white. I wasn't sure if I should paint it matte or low sheen or semi gloss. Usually ceilings are matte if it is plasterboard but I am not sure what to use for timber. Could you advice on what paint you used and also what colour white. Kind regards

    Hi. Any woodwork should have some kind of sheen - it's a personal preference but I would suggest low sheen. White color here was either Dunn Edwards Whisper White, or Benjamin Moore White Dove. Best

    Hi Kim, thanks for the reply. Might be a silly question but should I use low sheen wall paint or semi gloss/ low sheen timber/woodwork paint? Kind regards.

    any paint store should help you with the quality/type of paint to put on wood. i prefer the low sheen over semi gloss, esp for the ceilings
