The ceiling height is rather good press in decorating magazines: it’s elegant, it gives an impression of space and beautiful setting interior … Still need to know how to use it!
Nothing beats the classic: a library
At one time, it was thought that only bound books deserved to be displayed in a noble wood library, such as walnut or oak. Heresy! A large library floor to ceiling, it has a sacred pace. Fill it with all your readings, pocketbooks, comic books, various magazines, book a DVD sector, video games … What makes a mess? The papers, of course. Invoices, files, correspondence … But let’s be logical, practical, and aesthetic, just a few lockers, boxes, filing cabinets, to camouflage (and organize) this potential bazaar. And with class, because pretty boxes, we find as well as we can do it yourself!
It’s high … Top?
If you have more than 3.60 meters of ceiling, it becomes possible to build a mezzanine! We keep 2 meters downstairs, just to stay carrez law and keep a real nice room to live, and we create a secondary space in height. It can be very small, hidden with mirrored doors that reflect the light, to accommodate a simple storage space accessed by a ladder.It can also become a small secondary lounge, to read, watch TV, with a low bench, beanbags, a soft carpet … For cozy evenings lit candle! You understand, the important thing is to imagine a sitting space. That it is office, playroom for the children (think then with the barriers and railings of security!), Secondary lounge … it is a space that you create, to you the freedom!
