Why it’s easy to make a space look good when the ceiling is 14 feet tall. But what about those more humble spaces with ceilings no higher than the standard eight feet?
Don’t fret! These interior design ideas will provide you with tips and inspiration for dealing with low ceilings according to Apartment Therapy:
Paint your ceilings and walls the same color
By painting your wall and ceiling the same color, you will blur the transition between the two making the room seem much more spacious. Using white paint for the wall, ceiling and trim will keep a low-ceilinged space from feeling claustrophobic.
Add vertical elements that draw the eye up
There are several stylish vertical elements that you can apply to bring the eyes up and achieve that feeling of a taller ceiling. One is having tall bookcases; this can visually enhance the height of any space. When using curtains, choose a design that goes all the way to the ceiling as it does the trick of making the walls seem taller. If you want to add a lamp, try going for a curving Arco lamp which adds an element of verticality to any room. A gallery wall that is cleverly designed to draw the eye up will also do the trick.
