Killing reflections on the ceiling with front projection

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've had a room with a black ceiling, the current one is dark brown, both are/were flat paint, but there was still some reflectivity. Is lining the ceiling with black velvet the only way to completely stop it? Because I can't figure out how to do that without it looking really cheesy when the lights are on.

I am in the same boat. I have a drop ceiling and can wrap each tile with velvet...I currently have black felt and it is not nearly as good as the velvet I use for my front wall. What I am considering instead of wrapping the tiles then wrapping the rails in between is building wooden frames then hanging them from the ceiling. If you have enough room from the top of the screen you could angle the frames in various directions to help further. I think this last option will be what I do, my only advice after working with my front wall and framed velvet is to use more small frames instead a fewer larger to prevent the fabric from sagging.

Drop ceiling is a nice idea, but I'd hate to lose the height. What about a really heavy texture on the ceiling, painted flat black? I did texture on a wall once that turned out like a bed of spikes, turned out that way because I didn't know how to do texture lol, but on the ceiling I'd imagine it would serve to eliminate reflections nicely.
