Just like in art and photography, visually splitting a wall into three equal parts when decorating will guarantee balance and ultimately, success. The idea is to create focal points and to diminish the intimidating feel of high ceilings.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money on lighting fixtures to give your interiors a special vibe and this is also true when it comes to rooms with high ceilings.
But lighting can make a bold statement and you should definitely pay a lot of time and attention to this subject.
We are a fan of chandeliers, as we believe they are a great way to add elegance to a tall living room, kitchen, or bedroom. For example, three chandeliers in the living room can visually separate the lounge area, kitchen, and dining space.
In order to reduce the overwhelming architectural impression of tall walls, place the paintings at eye level. White curtains will ensure a breezy feel, red will bring in extra energy and darker hues will add an intriguing sense of drama.
Black materials will also contribute to the idea of shrinking the room and make it more cozy, if that is what you are after. A patterned design, although a bit more difficult to integrate, will ensure diversity and visual appeal. We are intrigued (read that pleasantly surprised) by the growing popularity of exposed wooden beams. On a design stage where minimalism and functionality are main actors, it is nice to see elements that bring personality back into the game.
Mainly, they can reduce the scale, making the room feel more comfortable and friendly. It also does a great job at contrasting the walls and floor and creating a sense of disruption.
