Ceilings may not be the first thing you notice upon entering, but they really create an ambience and can make your space appear smaller or larger than it is. A room with a low ceiling usually feels uncomfortable. So if you don’t have highs, why not create such an illusion?
Use shiny paint on the ceilings
It will reflect the light and the ceilings will appear higher. However, remember that the ceiling surface should be ideal.
Use glass walls or floor-to-ceiling windows
Glass, like shiny paint, has the property of reflecting things. Therefore a glass wall or a large window increases the feeling of space and provides natural daylight.
Paint the ceiling lighter as the walls
Lighter ceilings create an imposing effect and create the illusion of a large and bright room. A dark floor is also sufficient!
Hang your curtains close to the ceiling
Even if the windows are small, floor-to-ceiling curtains reveal great features of the room that you were not familiar with.
Avoid using pendant lights
Pendant lights are specially designed for high ceilings, mainly because they make the ceiling appear closer to the floor. If you have low ceilings, we recommend using in-wall lighting, although they may not be as alluring.
Decorate your walls with vertical strips
Vertical stripes visually enlarge any room, that’s the effect they create. Look out for stylish striped wallpaper and enjoy the effect you get!
