dandlj replied to Nevyn72's topic in Room Acoustics, Construction and DesignHi, We are due to paint our room very soon. Rather than black we've gone for a very dark grey - flat matte. We also wanted a slightly lighter grey to give a bit of contrast in the room - as it's not a basement, it's a lounge room. We've put in soundproof walls and door, and the windows will be light controlled using cassette blinds. We had decided dark grey on the walls and lighter grey on the ceiling. However, I wanted to check. Is it better to have a darker ceiling than walls - or better to have darker walls than ceiling? Ive put in a bulkhead (soffit) which will be above the screen too - this will be painted black on its underside. Pic attached (note there is plasma on the wall currently until we have our projector and screen installed). Thanks for any help in advance.
