10 Easy Ways to Make a Low Ceiling Look Higher

I have to admit that in some of the rooms in my current house, low ceilings are not that much of an issue. I have cathedral ceilings in the living room, master bedroom and guest bedroom…one of the reasons that I bought this house.

However, the rest of the rooms have regular 8 foot ceilings. And it seems to me that having a few rooms with taller ceilings makes those 8 foot ones seem even lower!

To get around that, I have found some easy ways to make a low ceiling look higher…and thought I would pass them on in case they might help any of you…

    Give me a break – almost all of the ceilings in the photos where over 9 foot. Take a real challenge use a home with 8 foot ceilings.

      Hi Terry…actually, most of the ceilings in these pictures are 8 feet high…they are rooms in my house so I know exactly what their height is. I guess the tips must work if you thought they were 9 feet :) It’s possible that the pictures which came from houzz.com are higher (those ones I don’t know what the actual measurements are), but they still demonstrate the idea.

    SWEET tips~!!! Thank you!!!

  3. Thank you so much for all the wonderful tips. I only knew about one or two of these, the other tips blew my mind how it gave the illusion of height. Thank you so much.

      Thanks, Ivory! It is amazing what a difference a few little changes can make in the way a room looks :)

    In particular the dinning room has to be at least 12 and it looks like a designer room. Please designate which rooms are in your home and which ones are from another source.

      Hi Terry…you are probably right that the dining room ceiling is higher than 8 feet, but I do think the idea of using a floor to ceiling vertical picture is just as effective in a room with a lower ceiling. You can tell which pictures come from other sources by the captions…they will be linking to the original website. The ones without links are my own.
