EASY, BREEZY WAYS TO MAKE LOW CEILINGS APPEAR HIGHER!
1- Paint your ceilings a shade of blue; this gives the feeling of sky and opens up the space. Go one step further and paint a “sky’ mural on the ceiling complete with clouds and birds! Or whatever your imagination dictates! I once painted the ceiling of a young girl’s room with a blue sky , pink-tinged clouds and a Pink Flamingo in flight – so fun! The picture at right shows a cloud ceiling I had painted for a client, even though the ceilings weren’t low in this room, it still opened up and expanded the space and added a relaxing ambience.
2- Use low profile furnishings in the room.
3-Hang your drapery as close to the ceiling as you can or even ceiling mount them; the drapery should be floor length.
4-Paint your crown molding the same color as the ceiling or, if you don’t have crown molding, paint the first 3 or 4 inches of the wall (where it meets the ceiling) the same color as the ceiling.
5-Hang your art higher ( not too high, though) and use art with a vertical shape.
6-Use vertical striped wall covering or paint vertical stripes on the walls.
