There are several factors to consider when determining if you’d like to include high ceilings within your design. Consider room size, activity, adjacency to other open areas, and overall visibility to your outdoor spaces. It has been proposed in studies, that adding high ceilings to your design can give you a sense of freedom and promote visuospatial exploration; in simple terms, this means they prompt us to think more freely.
This could be a rather potent combination for inducing positive feelings as the appeal of high ceilings is no doubt related to a general preference for space. If you’re aiming for a more contemporary feel, anything above the standard eight-foot ceiling is a great start. Here in Queensland, where the climate is rather temperate, you can make high ceilings work to your advantage.
The look of high ceilings lends itself to rooms sized for a specific use, for example if your living room is sized to hosting and entertaining. Immackulate Designer Homes can create spaces that feel comfortable, rooms don’t need to be super-sized to accommodate design requirements. Be sure to ask your designer for advice on the most appropriate height for each rooms’ purpose.
Ceiling heights should be varied to accommodate the room size and purpose. Because of the spacious feeling typically associated with high ceilings, open plan living is very popular as part of Immackulate’s timeless, contemporary designs. Our designs utilise your space well and suit those who don’t want to compromise on style and quality.
