Did you know that higher is not always better, especially when it comes to ceiling heights? Ceilings need to be proportional to the room size. This past year a client came to us; they did not like their living room. The original builder wanted the room to be “special” so he made the room with vaulted ceilings. The problem is, the room would have been bigger if you would have tipped it on its side! With a bit of design and study, we came up with a solution that took the room from 17’ tall with vaults to a room that is now 14 feet tall with a coffered ceiling. The new appearance is now pleasing to the eye but more importantly makes the room comfortable.
