If your home hasn’t been blessed with ceilings higher than 8-feet, fear not!  You can make your walls look taller, and your rooms appear more light and airy.  You just need to incorporate a few of these designer tricks into your decor.

1. Paint Your Ceiling

If you’re trying to make your ceiling look higher, paint it a lighter color than your walls.  While the experts agree that white is ideal, there is some difference of opinion when it comes to the finish of your paint.  Some interior designers recommend a high gloss paint to reflect light, however others suggest a matte finish to help the ceiling disappear more into the background.
