When your ceiling feels low, you can really mess with the proportions of your room. Making your ceiling look higher will upgrade your room presentation.
Floor To A Ceiling Curtain
Allow the fabric of the curtain to go all the way to the floor and make sure to go for extra material for the coveted puddling effect. This high styling can also hide curtain rod brackets and unsightly rails too. So there is no visual clutter in an already tight space.
Proud Of Vertical Line
Vertical lines are a wonderful idea for drawing the eye upwards. This will be distracting everyone from noticing the actual size of the wall and instead emphasize the long vertical lines casting everyone’s eye upwards towards the ceiling. So wall framing is a great job to do to add a decorative aspect to a scheme. On the other hand, you can also have wall paneling as a cheap and easy way to create a wall framing effect. Then, painting vertical lines is a great budget-friendly option for the same result.
Low Profile Furniture And Floating
It is time to think about the proportion of the wall and how your furniture height will divide up your space. For this, you can analyze how far up your wall and furniture should come for a pleasing aesthetic and how high up a traditional dado rail there should go. On the other hand, you may also go lower than 30″ – 36″ as a standard to help skew the dimensions of the room.
Break Up The Space By Painting Below Dado Rails In Different Shades
The humble dado rail has withstood the test of time for a reason. This wall molding will hold a lot of power to break up wall space. Next, when you go for a subtle difference below and above the rail, this will stress the horizontal layering of the room. Then, it will also draw attention to the shape and size to create the illusion of more space. You can with light colors above the wall to hide any scuffs and marks while going darker under the dado rail with fresh white woodwork. As a piece of additional information, you may think of off-white paired with light pink, two different shades of grey, or different materials with shiplap paneling under the rail for texture addition.
