Hi my name is Erica Lugbill and I'm an interior designer working for Lugbill Designs in Chicago. Today I'm going to be discussing the dos and don'ts of painting a tray ceiling. Tray ceilings come in all different shapes and sizes. They're always at a different angle so there is no tried and true rule when talking about tray ceilings. I pretty much always paint the top surface of the tray ceiling and then depending on the angle if the tray is angled up then I'll paint the angled portion also and then leave the flat ceiling portion white, the ceiling white color. In this specific tray ceiling that we're looking at today, it's recessed a little bit and there's a cove and there's rope lighting up inside of it which is a great feature to add if you're able to and then there's also crown molding. So the molding is always painted trim white or stays the color of the trim that you have in the room whether that's wood stain or painted a specific color. And then you'll see on this one, the flat and the angled portion is painted just a solid paint and then there's also a 90 degree portion and that's painted the wall color in this case because I wanted to pop the crown molding out and kind of make a bigger impact there and then the ceiling portion stayed white. Thanks for watching my video today. I hope you found these tips helpful.
