Ceilings are not exactly the main detail that you pay attention to when you first enter a house, but they do have a major impact in maintaining a sense of freedom and space. Everybody knows that these are vital if you want to create that particularly welcoming feeling! A room with low ceilings may give you the impression of living in a small bird cage. If we were to talk about the psychological effects, it is said that low ceilings often provide a low state of mind. But this is another story. What we know for sure is that they were always a challenge for interior designers. This is one of the best solutions if you want to make your ceiling look higher.
Dont be afraid to use your walls! Wall lighting fixtures will create a warm, cozy atmosphere so that you can enjoy your home to the fullest. Usually, when we choose the furniture for our home, we tend to make decisions based on appearance, without considering functionality. Low profile furniture is perfectly designed for low ceiling houses, because it increases the space between the ceiling and the floor, making the room feel more spacious and breezy. Just like a mirror, glass has the property of reflecting things around. Thats why a glass wall or a large window will increase the sense of space and will also provide natural daylight. Brighter is always better, especially in terms of interior design. I dont particularly enjoy decorating my walls with stripes, but sometimes it may be necessary. You can choose between using wallpaper, or, if you are brave enough (and talented), you can simply paint them by yourself. I bet you never thought about that! Generally speaking, interior doors have almost the same size.
A floor to ceiling door may seem strange at first. However, we must admit that this is a brilliant idea to create the illusion of a generous space. paint is rarely used on walls and ceilings, but rather to decorate different pieces of furniture, especially coffee tables. A major drawback would be the fact that it must be applied on a perfect shaped surface, or else it will highlight all the imperfections. For a great result use vertical framed pictures or paintings. The walls will look taller, so the distance between the ceiling and floor will also seem higher. Lighter ceilings create an imposing effect and shape the illusion of a large and bright space. A dark colored floor will also do the trick! Long curtains will always emphasize length. Even if the windows are small, floor-to-ceilings curtains will unveil magnificent features of the room, that you were not aware of.
Another great tip on how to create the illusion of a high ceiling is to paint a diagonal on one of the walls. It will open up the space, and change the perspective. For the best result start from the center of the wall and end it on the top left corner of the room (or the top right corner, depending what wall you decide to use). Pendant lamps are specially designed for high ceilings, mainly because they make the ceiling look closer to the floor. If people cant be impressed by your ceiling, draw their attention with a bold floor rug. In fact, you dont even have to use a rug, just try to keep the interest at the floor level by using different kind of patterns. It doesnt matter what you decide to keep on them, books, decorative items, pictures with the loved ones, if you use them, the wall will appear taller, and so the ceiling. Candles, braches, flowers, whatever other tall accessories you have in your home will be useful in this case. Remember about contrasts and use whatever you can to create them. For example.
