If you find yourself wishing that the ceiling in your bedroom or family room was just a bit higher, you’re not alone. The reality is that many people wish that they could make some alterations to their residences, but physically increasing the height is pretty much out of the question due to cost. Fortunately, however, there are some changes you can pursue that will make the ceiling appear to be higher…and that will make a big difference. One of these changes has to do with Corono, CA replacement windows. Read on to learn more about this and other options.
Take Down Crown Molding
Do you have crown molding? If so, your best bet is to take down the crown molding that extends down from the ceiling. After you do this, you’ll see that the ceiling appears to be higher. It’s a visual trick that really does work, and all it will cost is a bit of paint in the area that had been covered by the crown molding. This will ensure that it matches the color of the wall.
Want to make a room appear bigger and taller? Install transom windows above your doors and your other windows. There will be more natural light getting into the room, which will make it appear as though the room is higher than it really is. Feel free to ask a replacement window company about other ways that windows can visually make it appear as though your ceiling is higher.
Increase the Height of Cabinets
If you want to increase the height of your kitchen ceiling — at least visually — then consider raising your kitchen cabinets. In other words, take them down and reinstall them closer to the ceiling so that there isn’t a huge gap between the cabinets and the ceiling. This will involve more work, of course. But it might be worthwhile if you’re already planning a kitchen renovation.
Adjust or Remove Window Treatments
Do you have blinds, curtains, or other window coverings on your windows? Either raise them up higher or get rid of them altogether. After you’ve done so, you’ll make the ceiling look higher visually, and it will make the room feel bigger and less cluttered.
Use Tall Bookcases
Another way to make your ceiling appear to be higher is to use taller bookcases. When the top of your bookcases reaches close to the ceiling, your eyes will naturally be drawn upwards. So you’ll have a higher ceiling without having to call in a contractor and paying an arm and a leg.
