Loriae4,

 

In my opinion, significantly darkening the ceiling visually lowers it and makes the room somewhat smaller.

 

However, over the years, decorators would often have me add a small percentage of the wall color into the ceiling paint to soften the stark transition from wall to ceiling. Bright, pure ceiling whites can often be too austere, but they do somewhat reflect light and lighten the room.

 

Hope this is of assistance.
