Paint ceiling in a newly purchase home?

last month

We just closed on a new home and are having the interior walls painted before we move in. My question is, should we also have the ceiling and trim painted while we're at it? It currently appears bright white and I can see the appeal of going with a different shade of white (BM Chantilly Lace or Decorator's White), but am not sure if it makes a big difference aesthetically. Attaching some photos so you can see that if we painted ceilings, I assume we'd pretty much have to do the full first floor due to the open layout plus all millwork, etc. I'm kind of excited by the idea but want to make sure we would notice a difference. For the walls, we'll likely go with something like BM Classic Gray, Edgecomb Gray, Silver Satin, etc. Would take any advice there as well :)
