High ceilings in the apartment – this is an unconditional bonus, especially in a small space. But not everyone knows how to dispose of this treasure and make the interior more functional. Thanks to high ceilings, it is easy to turn a small room into a bedroom, a living room, a dining room and a home office.
Modern interior designers often use the technique when they raise the sleeper to the second level. So it turns out to relieve the room and get a lot of space for the arrangement of other vital zones. Often on the first level, under the bed-attic, a place is set up for work.
Here, the sofa and the living room area will perfectly fit. In some cases, under the bed, a dining room or a dressing room is made. And sometimes the bed is organized right above the door, which visually disguises it and expands the useful area, which can be used for other purposes. And if it were not for high ceilings, only half of the room was occupied by a sofa or a bed.
Such a reception is appropriate in small apartments, bedrooms, tiny living rooms and children’s rooms. In the latter, by the way, you can equip the steps leading to the bed, in the form of boxes for storing things and toys.
High ceilings can be adapted to the storage of paper books. It is enough to set up several open shelves here. It will not be superfluous to have a ladder or ladder to get your favorite books more conveniently. This home library looks stylish, original and accurate, and also allows you to free a part of the interior from a bulky cabinet or rack. It is not difficult to equip such storage systems in the living room, bedroom and even in the corridor.
Instead of a dressing room
Not always in a small apartment, there is an opportunity to organize the storage of things in the dressing room. Sometimes it is simply unrealistic to allocate space for a separate ancillary room. Then high ceilings will come to their aid, shelves, and barbells for hangers should be placed under them. You can even arrange something like a rack, framing the door to the bedroom. This will not put an additional piece of furniture in the room and at the same time place more things than in a standard chest or cabinet.
In a small bathroom or a bathroom, it is necessary to use the area with the maximum benefit. Make these rooms more functional and convenient is easy if you arrange under the high ceilings storage shelves. They can be folded towels, put detergents and cleaners. In order to be more convenient, it is not bad to additionally use small containers or baskets, where cosmetics, hygiene and body care products will fit.
In the living rooms with high ceilings, the shelves on the whole wall look spectacular. Such a piece of furniture is quite capable of performing the functions of an exhibition display, where you can put your favorite decor elements, unusual vases, statuettes, souvenirs brought from travel, family photos. Here, a collection of glossy magazines or novels of a beloved author will be harmoniously placed.
High ceilings in the kitchen
High ceilings in the kitchen – a real gift for any mistress. After all, in such a room you can install several rows of kitchen cabinets at once or even make furniture to order. And as you know, storage systems are never superfluous. True, it will require some kind of elevation, so that the landlady could easily reach the desired kitchen accessories. For these purposes, it is convenient to use a stepladder-stool (such can be found in the IKEA range) or a conventional ladder that can be easily hidden by leaning against the wall behind the door or by placing it in the space between the cupboard and the wall.
