Sticking to the conventional design elements can get boring at times, which is why every homeowner needs to experiment with different styles, especially when aiming for a unique look. One of the ways you can make the interior of your home stand out is through use of slanted ceilings. As ou will see, although the end result is usually appealing, sometimes, if not fixed properly, a slanted ceiling will destroy the design of your home altogether. Here are some tips to make sure you don’t fall victim to terrible slanted ceiling designs;
Here’s how you can incorporate a slanted ceiling in your living room design;
One important tip a homeowner should always consider when they opt for a slanted ceiling is that rooms with slanted ceilings require plenty of light. This can be achieved through the use of light and pale colors like the white color of the walls and ceiling and neutral-colored furniture in this living room.
Slanted ceilings are mostly about having fun with the design and décor of your home. As such, one should always consider a wide range of materials.
If you have items you would like to display in your bedroom, you should consider displaying them in the area where the slanted ceiling is low, to maximize on the use of space as well as leave plenty of space for movement. This tip comes in handy especially if you have a small bedroom.
As seen in this bedroom, the space below the slanted ceiling can be used to create a cozy and comfy window seat, if it is close to a window.
Just like any other room, a bathroom with a slanted ceiling design appears more spacious if you use light and neutral colors.
In a bathroom with a slanted ceiling, using neutral color shades for the walls and floor opens up the bathroom, especially if it is small.
For a room with a high slanted ceiling, it is wise to use high furniture. This helps create some balance in the room. You can also incorporate décor features such as pendant lights more easily in a room with a high slanted ceiling compared to that with a low slanted ceiling.
Another great yet simple trick to make any room with a slanted ceiling appear bigger is using low furniture, like in this kitchen with a low island and low stools.
To make a room with a slanted ceiling appear bigger, use little furniture, or, if you opt to fill the room with the furniture, make sure to space it out as much as possible.
Another great tip to keep in mind is that having a floor in a tone that is darker than that of the slanted ceiling also makes the room look bigger, because of the greater perception of depth.
