High Ceiling Interior Decorating Ideas
High ceilings are ideal and many of us dream to have them in our homes. Lack of proper high ceiling interior design can make the house feel like an empty cave or auditorium. However, the elegance, drama and opulence of house with the high ceiling can be retained by skillful arrangement of furniture and clever selection of wall color and decor. You can master these simple high ceiling decorating guidelines and let your imagination do the rest. Just like in art and photography, visually splitting a wall in three equal parts when decorating will guarantee balance and ultimately, success. From the bottom up, try imagining your room as having three different “design levels”. You can adorn the first with judges paneling, use the second for paintings and leave the third as it is. This is just a random example; as the photos below will show, the possibilities are endless. Furniture should also be placed within the bottom third. The idea is to create focal points and to diminish the intimidating feel of high ceilings.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money on lighting fixtures to give your interiors a special vibe and this is also true when it comes to rooms with high ceilings. But lighting can make a bold statement and you should definitely pay a lot of time and attention to this subject. For example, three chandeliers in the living room can visually separate the lounge area, kitchen and dining space. Then, color is always a good way to accentuate height and help bring drama to the space. By painting a single wall in a bold color, the high ceiling and other unpainted walls will automatically be connected at a different level. The space will get a fresh look and a unique personality.
