The ceiling of a house is an important part of home decor. One of the most popular type of ceiling in your house is a high ceiling. Having high ceilings is a great benefit for any home owner. A home with a high ceiling can look grand. A high ceiling make the room look bigger and can add volume to your room design. When it comes to decorate your house with a high ceiling, there are several ways that you can do. Installing molding in rooms with high ceilings is a good idea, because the molding can be used to create an illusion of a lower, false ceiling. Moreover, the wall below the molding can be painted a different, preferably darker shade. This will again impart the feeling that the ceiling is lower. Avoid painting the high ceiling white. This is because, white paint will cause the room to feel like an auditorium, thereby lacking the cohesiveness and warmth a house should have. Using warm, rose-based gray, rustic terracotta, mellow yellow and other such colors will be a good idea. Wall papers with bold, large and rich prints can also be used.
Lighting is what give a high ceiling room its glorious look, which is why it requires special attention. Large chandeliers are perfect for such cavernous rooms. There are all kinds of chandeliers available, however, the one you choose should fit the scale of your room. If the room is huge, get a nice large chandelier, because a smaller chandelier will only make the room look even bigger. Tall lamps that occupy more vertical space are also great for such rooms. Adding 24-26 inch wall scones can also give the room a dramatic effect.
