Decor Ideas for High Ceilings in Lake Mary Florida
As a professional home stager and home stylist, I often get asked questions that stump people when creating a plan for their home interiors. I’ve been asked multiple times about ideas for homes with ceilings that are taller than 12’.
The most often asked is, “How do I hang pictures?” There is one simple easy answer: at eye level. A large picture hung in any other fashion; for example, centered on the wall simply won’t work. Here’s why – how can your guests view the beautiful picture when it is so high; they can’t really see it. So “at eye level” will always be your answer.
While we’re on the topic of hanging pictures, there are many other types of arrangements as well. I did want to point out the staircase landing. This is a great location to hang a picture, again at eye level. Arranging photos as you go up the stair case is another great place to create visual interest. As you stand on the step adjacent to the wall, hang at eye level. The picture frames will naturally stagger up the stairs.
What are your other alternatives then for the large expanse of space which we call “wall” that reaches up to that 12’ ceiling?
(1) Symmetrical large wall art; begin the bottom portion at eye level as if you were hanging a picture and work your way up the wall. Photo 1 shows this.
(2) Using one large piece of wall art, hang it vertically. This grabs the viewer’s attention and draws their eyes upward. Vertical interest is added which helps enclose the vastness of the space. Photo 2 demonstrates this. Note off to the right in this photo that the picture is hung at eye level.
(3) Install beams across the ceiling. Most often beams are thought of as very heavy wood. However, with the invention of lighter weight materials, faux wooden beams are available which makes their installation less cumbersome with the added bonus of affordability. This is also a great solution to sustainable living and being eco-friendly.
