TradeWinds 1645Want to make your low ceilings appear higher? Here are 6 Easy, Breezy ways to accomplish that!

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.

I hope you have enjoyed this post and will find it useful! I would love to hear your ideas about how to make low ceilings appear higher!

Wishing you happy and healthy living with fabulous style ! Clay
