My dream home has 100 foot ceilings. Not really, but to me, that’s the dream. In reality, our home has low ceilings. 8 feet low to be exactSomething I’ve shed tears over (no joke). When we began dreaming up remodel plans, the only thing I really cared about was vaulting our low ceilings. I also cared a teensy little bit about the linoleum, and the old wood cabinets, and the gross counter tops. I also cared a little bit about the old windows with condensation in between the panes.
So when I told our contractor my list of ‘needs’ (not to be confused with ‘wants‘)… He laughed at me. He didn’t laugh right in my face, but you could tell – there was. no. way. that my need list was getting checked off.
So I contemplated selling the goats, then decided that since ripping our roof off and reestablishing the 8 foot lines was not in our budget, I would make the most of them. I’ve since dried my tears and come to terms that yes, low ceilings can look fantastic. Amber Interiors continues to knock it out of the park, just see below.
Do you have low ceilings? How have you made the most of them?
