Motorized blinds or shades on high windows can offset a beautifully-designed ceiling
Oct 19 2010
A carefully chosen color palette and design scheme doesn't have to end where the wall meets the ceiling, particularly when the ceiling is cathedral-style or just reach-for-the-sky height.
High ceilings can be decorated to match a room's decor.
Including the ceiling by choosing a beautiful color that complements the walls, or continuing a design used elsewhere in the room will give a finished, unified look that doesn't have to end at ground level, HGTV.com reports.
"When designing spaces, think of the entire room three-dimensionally. If left untreated or ignored, then the emphasis will be on the ceiling," Nashville, Tennessee interior designer Beth Haley told the website. "It will become the big white elephant. The ceiling should be the icing on the cake."
Homeowners who want to complete the ceiling's finished look may consider what window treatment would look best on high-up windows that border high ceilings and cathedral-style rooms. Motorized blinds or shades are a good choice for their ease of controlling the window shade by an electric switch or a remote control. Light that comes in throughout the day can be controlled by the blinds, while they can be lifted to reveal starry skies at night.
