How to improve a low ceiling room


Nice job on the stone on the wall.

I did, or should I say my contractor, with my instructions, cut 16 inch limestone tiles in half and laid them in a brick fashion. Looks really nice.

Love the colour on the wall.
I have a focal wall with same colour in my dining room with a black piano in front.

great job.

How to improve a low ceiling room


I am finishing my basement.
2 months and only 2 framed walls.

Will probably have it done in about 5 years!

How to improve a low ceiling room


Hi Anita,

I can really sympathize about the low ceilings. We share a duplex with relatives and the upstairs apartment (where we live) has seven foot ceilings. It's so claustrophobic! We have quarter-round mouldings throughout, which is a nice touch and doesn't overwhelm the rooms. I would think that crown moulding might make the ceilings feel lower. The ceiling color is flat white throughout the apartment, but I'm getting bored with that. We recently had the bathroom remodeled, and I painted the ceiling high gloss white. It really helps to bounce the light around, making it feel more spacious. And since the bathroom is about an inch and a half step up from the rest of the apartment, it's really low in there!

I want to redorate the bedroom in a Moroccan theme. My idea is to use deep, almost midnight blue on the walls, and the barest tint of sky blue on the ceiling. I would do the window frames and mouldings in white. If I ever get the time to actually do this, I'll put up some pictures (lol)

Also - have you considered lower furniture? Seriously. If you can't raise the ceilings, lower the furniture. That way it will feel like you have more room, at least when you're sitting.

Good luck - you can do it!
