Ceiling Height Does Matter
- Low ceilings work best when painted with lighter colors.
- High ceilings can be decorated and designed in an elaborate manner.
Whether you have a low or high ceiling, the first thing to keep in mind is the lighting options you'll be adding to or near the ceiling. Accordingly, you will have to figure out what the exact design or style of ceiling you wish to move forward with. With options like recessed and pendant lighting for a variety to ceiling designs―vaulted, tray, false, wooden panels, beamed―the final decision rests in how you and your interior designer pick.
The ceiling's design does make a huge difference to the entire ambiance of a living room. So, make your decision by keeping all the aspects in mind.
Instead of including any architectural features, such as floating screens, wallpaper, acoustic panels, etc., focus on making the area appear larger than it actually is. This works well when you have the entire décor concept of the kitchen and dining area figured out. Now this doesn't mean you should purchase all the furniture and finalize the paint colors; what we want you to do is visualize the area and then proceed. Perhaps have an idea as to where the furniture will be placed, the lighting options, and other décor elements for both the areas.
Regardless of whether you'll be using these areas on a regular basis, the ceiling design will make an impact on how a kitchen and dining area appear to you and your guests.
Bedrooms are supposed to be feel cozy and inviting, and give you a sense of peace and quiet. The choice of ceiling has a huge say in how you will feel once you enter the room. Consider the space available along with lighting options for this room to finalize a ceiling design. Avoid going overboard with your design and stick to the minimum.
The design of a ceiling should be such that it highlights the architectural features of the room. The key to make your home look cozy and beautiful is to choose a ceiling design that looks cohesive with your home decor and which enhances your interiors.
