Even professional paint contractors are taking full advantage of the new types of ceiling paint. These paints go on in a color, such as pink or blue, to allow you to see where you have painted. Don't worry, though, they dry white or the color that you select them. This is great for making sure not to miss any spots and tricky locations.
The gloss of the paint you select is an important step in the process. You will want to look for the right choice for you. Flat paint offers no sheen, while low gloss offers just some. A glossy paint will shine and may even reflect light off of it. Consider the amount of wear the paint will get, the amount of dirty fingerprints you'll need to wash off and the overall look you are trying to create.
