Is your living room furniture more like past trends than the current one? Did you last update them a few years ago? Would you like to modernize and at the same time preserve the current style?
In some cases, constructive changes are needed and in others, they have to be done on a decorative level. In our examples, it's about the living room renovation on two levels. In some houses or apartments, which are on two floors, one could sacrifice the separation of the second level partly or completely in favor of a higher space.
Apartments on two levels speak for comfort and luxury
If you live in such an apartment and would like to experiment with this type of design, take a look at the following picture examples! They are representative of the current trends. Double the height in the living room gives you the feeling of luxury without having to invest in over-expensive interior design.
Apartments on two levels are currently in great demand
The first displayed living room is only partially over double height. A large part of the ceiling carries a second floor. In this case, the narrow two-storey room is perfectly adequate for a feeling of luxury, as the room opens out to the outside through a wall of glass panels with noble-looking metal frames. This is also the character of the wall of the room above that looks towards the living room area.
Living room with a slightly raised ceiling
Even a smaller increase in the living room ceiling can contribute greatly to the luxurious appearance of the room. This benefits narrow rooms, but slightly higher than usual. The enrichment of the upper zone with functional furniture and accessories, which at the same time have a decorative effect, would be fitting. Such would be bookshelves and hanging lamps, which also serve as accents in the room.
Each room with a slightly raised ceiling brings a feeling of luxury
Open two-storey living space
The high attic floors are often split into two levels. The different rooms can be visually linked. That is, they are not separated at all, or possibly separated by glass walls. So the lower part wins in height and the whole thing generally looks very luxurious.
Luxury prevails in this open living room
Emphasize the unity of the space through corresponding elements between the top and the bottom. Capture the stairs or the ladder connecting both floors as accents. You can do this, for example, by deviating from the rest color. Thus, you emphasize again the importance of the vertical dimension in space.
The artistic design can emphasize the vertical dimension
Artful emphasis on the vertical dimension
We have just given an example of how the artistic design can emphasize the vertical dimension in high rooms. This aspect is crucial for the luxurious appearance of living rooms. There are many ways you can access the setup. One would be the elaborate wall design that reaches from the very bottom to the very top. Furthermore, you can make the room dimensions blur by a great installation of suspended luminaires.
The most elaborate yet noble solution is the glazing of the high walls. These create a visual connection between the living room furniture in the high room and the outside area, or the adjoining rooms. With this type of design, the whole room appears noble, no matter from which perspective you look at it.
In addition to emphasizing the vertical dimension and visual connection to adjacent areas, lighting also plays an important role in designing such luxurious spaces. In this sense, it has a similar task as the art in the room. Both must emphasize the drama of the high living room furniture and at the same time unify this. The situation is similar with every other room element that is introduced into the particularly high living room furniture.
If you follow these principles, you will always achieve a gorgeous luxury style in a high ceiling living room.
