When space is at the top of the priority list, House Plans with High Ceilings deliver amazing levels of openness and freedom. Characterized by ceilings 9 feet tall and higher, these home plans are available in single-story and two-story designs as well as in a range of modern and traditional styles. House Plans with High Ceilings frequently place the greatest emphasis on the living room to create a breathtaking first impression whenever one enters the home. It’s also common to find Great Rooms in House Plans with High Ceilings, as this allows for an even more stunning use of the space. These homes are built around one central room – an open floor plan – that combines the traditional living room, dining room, and kitchen in an uninterrupted flow for maximum use of the square footage and easy access to all occupants. The high ceilings allow owners to feel the grandeur of the room in stunning detail, with some including windows that stretch the full height of the home.
Two-story House Plans with High Ceilings commonly stretch the ceiling in the main living room up to the top of the home, resulting in upwards of 20 feet of space. In order to accommodate these huge spaces, the second floor is shifted above the other rooms on the main floor. This results in smaller bedrooms on the second floor, which can function as offices or media rooms. In some cases, the second floor includes an open landing that can overlook the living room, further enhancing the open flow of the entire home floor plan. Homeowners can typically expect three or more bedrooms and a similar number of bathrooms, as House Plans with High Ceilings often fall on the larger side. These home plans may also include dormers, resulting in a one-and-a-half story home that maximizes the space while remaining somewhat economic in construction.
