Recent studies have concluded that ceiling height has a direct influence on our thoughts, emotions and our perception of the world around us. This is very interesting and makes us question what effect the height of the ceilings in our homes are having on our daily experiences?
On a subliminal level, lower ceilings support feelings of confinement and limitation, whereas higher ceilings assist an overall sense of freedom and independence. It has been proven that higher ceilings promote clearer thinking, increased energy levels and an overall sense of happiness.
While we do not actually utilise the vertical space in our homes, the increased height generates the illusion of more space. Further research has ranked ceiling height as one of the top three characteristics to consider when designing new homes. It is a subtle change that creates a myriad of lasting benefits.
The increased feeling of freedom manifests a sense of well-being. This has been linked to better health, longevity and a stronger immune system. Furthermore, it creates a mind-set shift, a change in perception. This generates a positive, ‘can-do’ attitude.
The additional space also has a significant impact on one’s sensory receptors. It has been found that when people do not continuously feel confined or stifled, all of their senses operate at heightened levels. Not only do concentration levels increase, but the world around us suddenly becomes noticeably brighter and more vibrant.
Higher ceilings, coupled with lighter paint colours on the walls, really enhance this illusion of additional space even more. This is a very smart tip for maximising the potential of any room and providing your subconscious with all the space it needs to flourish.
