Are you looking for ceiling to floor curtains? We can help!
Homeowners love high ceilings.There is something about the feeling one gets when standing in such a room. But what if your home does not have high ceilings? Is there anything you can do about it?
The short answer is “yes,” and we can help!
The illusion of room height can be created in a number of ways. From installing ceiling to floor curtains to doors and mirrors, here are some ways you can create a sense of height in your home.
Ceiling to Floor Curtains
One of the easiest ways to make a room appear to have height is to incorporate ceiling to floor curtains. By hanging your curtains directly from your ceiling, homeowners are able to help create the illusion of height.
From here, there are a number of ways to design your ceiling to floor curtains. For example, by going with a ripple-fold detail on your curtains, the height seems to be even more exaggerated thanks to the consistent vertical detail.

Utilize Full-Height Doors
Homeowners looking for quick and effective ways to create a sense of space can easily address their doors and passageways. It is easy to feel cramped when a home has lower passages, but by incorporating full-height doors, you can instantly make the room feel bigger.
Tall and skinny is good recipe for your rooms as well! Placing bookshelves that have are narrow and high in rooms that feel a little closed can be a great design. These pieces naturally draw the eye up which in turn signals a sense of height.
The Magic of Paint
Another simple “height hack” is to paint the ceilings, walls and baseboards all the same color. This creates an environment where your eyes cannot readily discern where the walls end and the ceiling begin.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall…
Again, because there is not much you can physically do to change your ceiling height, homeowners need to be creative in putting illusions to use. Mirrors can be a great tool for doing just that.
To fully leverage the height-creation that mirrors can provide, place full-height mirrors around the room. This will trick the eye into seeing (and feeling) more space than is actually available.
Keep a Low (Furniture) Profile
Ceiling height is all relative. And by decorating a room with furniture that has a low profile, you can create an impression of taller ceilings.
When choosing the perfect furniture, keep in mind that you will want to match the scale of the space available. For example, low-slung backs on couches and chairs can really enhance the feel.
As with most things in life, simplifying can have outsized returns. If you have lower ceilings, clutter will make the room feel even smaller. Cutting down on the amount of “stuff” in a room can go a long way.
When trying to create a sense of height in a room, consider the “hack heights” above. Whether you choose ceiling to floor curtains or the use of mirrors or a combination, be sure the result is what you are looking for.
