Updated: Mar 3, 2023

High ceilings can add a sense of grandeur and spaciousness to a room. However they can also make a space feel cold and uninviting. If you're struggling to create a cozy atmosphere in your high ceilinged home, don't despair. With a few simple tricks and techniques that I use often, you can make your space feel warm and welcoming. In this article, I will give you 5 expert tips that I use in my projects to create a warm and inviting atmosphere despite your high ceilinged home.

1 - Warm lighting:

Lighting is essential for creating a warm, inviting atmosphere in any room of a house. Incorporate a mix of ambient, task, and accent lighting to add warmth and depth to the space. Consider using warm white bulbs, which have a color temperature of 2700K or lower, to create a cozy ambiance.

2- Define the space with rugs:

This can help anchor a room and make it feel more cohesive and welcoming. Choose a rug with a warm, neutral color or pattern that complements your decor and create a cozy spot for relaxing. Moreover, the rug will use redefine the center of the room, lowering it to the ground.

3- Incorporate warm textures:

Textures such as wood, plush fabrics, soft blankets, and chunky knits can add warmth and comfort to a room. Use these elements to create a cozy, inviting atmosphere.

4- Add plants and greenery:

Plants can add warmth and life to a room, and can help to create a sense of nature and calmness. Choose plants that thrive in your climate and add them to your space to create a more welcoming atmosphere.

5- Use warm colors:

Warm deep mineral colors can help create a cozy, welcoming atmosphere. Incorporate these colors into your decor through accents such as throw pillows, artwork, or accessories.

With my expert tips, you can create a warm and inviting atmosphere in your high ceilinged home. Whether you're adding warmth with lighting, defining the space with rugs, incorporating warm textures, adding plants and greenery, or using warm colors, there are many ways to make your space feel cozy and comfortable. Remember to have fun with the process, experiment and don't be afraid to try new things. Remember that a little bit of creativity and effort can go a long way in creating a space that you'll love spending time in.
