Congratulations on your home-building project—and for thinking smart about ceiling height. Folks tend to obsess about square footage, but ceiling height goes a long way in defining the spaciousness of a house. High ceilings give rooms a light and airy feel and add grandeur to entryways and staircases. While lower ceilings can create a sense of calm and coziness, if they’re too low, rooms can feel dark and cramped. What’s more, there are various interesting ceiling styles that homeowners may consider installing, in remodels as well as new construction.
Newer houses are often built with nine-foot ceilings on the first floor (and, sometimes, eight-foot ceilings on the second story).
Higher ceilings, up to 12 feet, are not uncommon, especially in renovated loft apartments and pre-war style architecture (between 1890 and 1940). A new house can also be designed with varying ceiling heights. A grand, 10- or 12-foot entryway ceiling, for example, can pair with a more intimate nine-foot ceiling in the living room. Varying ceiling heights allow you to creatively play with the space, using paint colours, molding, exposed rafters, and/or skylights to add eye-catching features.
Standard ceilings provide the perfect finish for a room with a simple clean design, by using standard 6mm ceiling boards we cannot do more than paint them the colour of your choosing, as they are not designed for any other purpose. We can either nail them or screw them into brandering, and we join them using H-Strips. Standard Celling boards are the perfect finish for any room in the house as well as out buildings keeping your home looking consistent and clean at an affordable price.
