Should I paint the kitchen area ceiling gloss white and the living and dinning room texture white? And have a border paint of gloss and texture paint between kitchen and living / dinning room?

Or paint the entire ceiling one color? Gloss white or texture.

Anyone got some suggestions? Thanks.


I'm not sure what "texture white" is, but if it's that funky paint with granules mixed in; I would encourage you not to add any texture to the ceiling if there isn't any there already. I have always had just flat white ceiling paint in my kitchens and it was never a problem. I'm not sure what kind of cooking you do that stains on the ceiling are a concern. You know to put the top on the blender before you start it, right?

If you really want to do two separate ceiling finishes, IMHO you are going to need a hard division. A big square of gloss paint abutting flat paint would make me think you had some kind of ceiling damage and did a bad job of touch up.

Texture white is the original white paint that's on the living / dinning room ceiling (non-gloss, flat white) probably going to do all flat white then...

When we remodel our kitchen we made sure to purchase a high end hood/exhaust fan system, was worth it we never have food stains. If it was I, I want it all to look the same, it always looks strange in my book. I like my eye to just flow....

I would do flat white in the entire area and make sure you have kitchen ventilation to the outside.

You could define the kitchen area by dropping the ceiling in there by a few inches. Or putting a beam line up near the ceiling to sort of mark off the kitchen space visually even if it's still open. Or a line of boxed uplights around the edge of the kitchen ceiling. Or put in in the tops of the doorways (with really tall doorways) and have that extend through the cut out window area as well. Just most anything to mark the kitchen area on the ceiling.

Was that corner that was removed structural in any way?

Definitely paint it all the same. Years from now, if there are stains in the kitchen area, just repaint that area with the same flat paint.

Nice work! Did you use a rustoleum product to update the cabinet color?
