A living room with high ceilings can create a “Wow!” factor that will you leave you and your guests impressed.

In a living room with a tall ceiling, it can feel like you have an endless amount of space. However, if you use the wrong design tricks, the luxury of added space can make the room feel empty and uninspiring.

Features of a Living Room with Tall Ceilings

A high ceiling in your living room is useful for ensuring that the room receives the proper air circulation that it needs to feel spacious while effectively improving the feel of the room once a person steps inside of the room.

While a living room with tall ceilings can inspire feelings of freedom and awe, the additional space and the extra cost of a high ceiling can go to waste if the high ceilings aren’t properly incorporated into the overall look of the room.

Lighting

The lighting in a room with high ceilings can help bring a spacious and sophisticated look together. You have the option of illuminating your living room in more than a few stylish ways. You could hang pendant lights or a light chandelier from the ceilings, and you could arrange your lights so that they fall on a coffee table or whatever you’ve used to center the room.

Hanging a statement piece of lighting like a chandelier will help connect the upper and lower portions of your living room.

Furnishings

Accents like beautiful pieces of furniture can highlight the tall ceilings in your living room. If you’re a book lover, tall bookcases can assist with pulling the room together. If you’re an art lover, you should consider placing paintings higher up on the wall and it will help to emphasize your tall ceilings

If you have a large budget, an extended fireplace is also a beautiful addition to any living room with high ceilings.

Color Schemes

You can make your living room feel more cozy or intimate if you incorporate your high ceilings into your overall color scheme. If you’ve taken a note from the info above about hanging pieces of art from your personal collection, you’ll want to make sure that you take risks with bold colors: reds, yellows, oranges.

However, if you prefer something more simple, a classic coat of white paint will help your high ceilings brighten and add height to the room.
