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.

Thanks for dropping by and reading Decor Ideas for High Ceilings in Lake Mary Florida.  I hope I've provided some insightful advice.

“Foxy Interiors Inc. made our kitchen and living room redesign a reality. They were wonderful to work with every step of the way. We met with them on site to discuss our desire for a design “reset” and to review our options for reviving the space. Our home has modern lines but it lost its luster in a sea of dated wall and cabinet colors and clutter. They took in to account our likes and dislikes and offered many options for our consideration from paint colors and fabrics to finishes and textures. They developed a clear estimate per service offered. Their suggestions for enhancements made the biggest difference in the outcome of the redesign. For example, crown molding on the cabinets and an accent color for the breakfast nook resulted in an upscale redesign. We will definitely call on them again for their design and renovation expertise. We love our new space and highly recommend Foxy Interiors Inc. for your transformation! “

Thank you Michele. I'm glad you found this information useful. Another option is to add crown molding which diminishes the ceiling height and adds a touch of class. Have a great day.

These photos really show how to make the most out of large walls. The eyes really do like seeing things symetrical and the arrangement with the pictures on the sides and deer heads in the middle help to accentuate the fireplace.

High ceilings, especially in vaulted areas, are not easy to decorate. You have provided some alternatives that might work, thanks.

Hello Troy, I'm glad you also found this information useful. I'd like to clarify that beams look great on vaulted ceilings but crown molding does not. Have a great day.
