Dark Ceiling Sheen

last modified: 6 years ago

We are going bold with our sun room ceiling and painting it navy (BM Newburyport Blue). I know most people do ceilings in flat or matte, but I've read dark ceilings should be eggshell because they can read as black in lower light. The room is windows all around and gets tons of natural light all year long, and we're not usually in there after dark. A possibly complicating factor is the ceiling looks sort of like wood flooring - it's planks. I'n not sure if the planking is a factor or not as far as how it'll look with matte or eggshell. Currently painted a pink-leaning white wash look, which we don't care for.

Should we do matte or eggshell? Thanks!
