High ceilings evoke the image of a house passed down
generations and what they call “old money”. Even if your home wasn’t built a
century ago, having one or two rooms in it with high ceilings can infuse it
with a unique character. However, dressing a room with a high ceiling can be
tricky as that extra space can throw any regular design ideas into whack very
easily. But the following ways can come in pretty handy.
1. Use a large
A large traditional chandelier is the simplest way to
decorate a room with a high ceiling. It adds character to the room without
overpowering the décor.
2. Install pendant
Ambient lighting isn’t the ideal solution for rooms with high
ceilings as it leads to a loss of light and makes the space look bare. Installing
pendant lights could provide the room with more effective lighting.
3. Let in daylight
through large windows
Large windows allow a lot more of the outside view and
daylight into a room with a tall ceiling.
4. Use wall sculptures
If you aren’t up for a huge renovation project, you can
always dress your room with a high ceiling up by adding vertical wall
sculptures on walls.
5. Hang up artwork
People who like art and have a sizable collection can always
use their tall ceilinged rooms to display their prized possessions.
For a rustic look, tall ceilings can be dressed up by emphasizing
ceiling beams. When painted in a wooden finish, these beams add a traditional touch
to the room.
7. Use tall drapes
Rooms that get too much light and have a tall ceiling would benefit
much from the installation of tall drapes.
