That has a dormer, does one paint the angled/sloped ceiling the same colour as the wall or the same colour as the ceiling (white!)

DH is sure it should be the same colour as the wall
I (was) sure it should be the same colour as the ceiling!

I think it depends on the slope angle to be far. It is more ceiling or more wall looking?!

That's a good point, here's a photo:

I guess it looks more wall!

The bit with the windows in? Definitely looks wall to me

I agree that is more wall than ceiling

Wall definitely

Thanks - I'll never hear the end of this!

Yeah, wall :-)

Another vote for wall.

Yep it's the wall

put a picture rail on it, then you can paint above as ceiling, below as wall.

However you will not be able to hang any pictures on it.

We has this dilemma

Our ceilings were rolled into the sloping bit and there crisp line (if that make sense so.we went with ceiling) though you have a crisp edge though.

But if you paint it as part of the ceiling, the room will look lighter. I'd be tempted to treat that slope like the ceiling... but I am in the middle of doing that in our bathroom, which needs the light.

One bedroom will also have slope as ceiling and the other as wall as that would look better... so maybe you can ignore me smile

Yes makes perfect sense - ours actually 'rolls' the other way, so crisp line at the ceiling but curved where it meets the vertical walk which I guess points even more towards counting it as a wall.

Thanks for all the replies

Vertical wall!

Paint ceiling and walls the same colour - simples grin

Ceiling colour definitely it will make the room lighter

Ours looks very similar to yours and I was adamant that it should be ceiling however after lots of research and photoshopping we've gone for wall and it does look better. I read that doing it in ceiling colour will make the ceiling appear lower?

Lighteningirll Thu 07-Jul-16 09:25:39

Sorry I meant the same white as the ceiling NOT a fuchsia pink ceiling grin

I would paint it all a very light colour as breaking it up into wall and ceiling will 1/ be a lot of extra work 2/ bring the ceiling down lower
