Headliner

I'm going to have a headliner put in my Buick soon. It's chopped and channeled so it's a low roof. I'm trying to decide what color to go with. I don't know if I should go with black or beige. The interior now is a coffee colored. Like I say it may not always be that color. Dan, chime in here, if anyone knows its you. thanks guys.

If the roof is lowered, I'd go with the lighter color. Black would make the car seem really closed in in my opinion.

I have to say, my opinion would be just the opposite. In a closed car, when you look inside, the black headliner would give the illusion of a higher roof. The lighter color will appear larger and more closed in. The same reason that women wear black dresses... It's harder to define the edges or limits of the object and give it a slimmer appearance. Just my input... For what it's worth.

Thanks

That's a perfectly valid opinion,..... I guess the only way to know for sure is to put a big piece of black up there and then a big piece of the lighter color and see what happens.

Ii pulled the trigger on the black one. It fits the theme of the car better. Holding up different colors is a thought I never had. Good idea.
