Reflective surface on ceiling


We are building a new house which has porches on both sides of the living room and although there are three windows in each of these walls, our natural light will be limited. I plan to use a light muted shade on the walls in eggshell and am considering some level of gloss on the ceiling to maximize the bounce of available light. Can some of you experienced painters offer advice or comment on this plan?

I'm not a fan of any kind of gloss on ceilings, but, in your case a Satin would increase the LRV (light reflective value) quite a bit. I say "go for it."
