Low ceiling

here's my problem. my house only has 7'2" ceiling on second floor. MBR is 12 x 20 but feel very claustrophobic. Any paint tricks to make ceiling seem higher?:confused:

Re: Low ceiling

We have the same low ceilings in our house. Keep your colors light, definitely paint your ceiling white. If you are inclined to wallpaper, vertical stripes will give a sense of height; stay away from papers that are too busy. If you like the wainscotting look, put the darker color on the bottom, lighter color on top. Don't use a border next to your ceiling, it will "bring the ceiling down". Hope this helps. BWoolf.
