A highly desired feature in homes today is a 9-foot ceiling or higher on the first floor, according to a survey of builders by the National Association of Home Builders. This is a major change from the days when the cost of heating a home was considered a more important requirement than high ceilings.

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 that are higher than 8 feet in at least part of the house, these home plans are available in single-story and two-story designs as well as in a range of modern and traditional styles.

Our selection of high ceilings house plans spans an impressive array of architectural styles, giving you countless options that speak to an eclectic range of aesthetics and designs. Whether you want the rustic feel of an Arts and Crafts or Bungalow home plan or prefer the modern feel of a California or Texas style design, you can always find a house plan with ceilings over 8 feet to match your personal preferences and needs.

High ceilings (over 8') house plans also range in overall square footage from the modest 1,000 square foot range to the luxurious 3,000+ square foot varieties, giving you even more flexibility to choose the absolutely perfect plan to make the most out of your available space. That means many of these plans also include 3 or more bedrooms – and multiple bathrooms as well.

Homeowners choose home plans with high ceilings for a variety of reasons, with one of the most common being the added sense of space and openness that they impart. Homeowners coming from apartment living – or older homes built on smaller lots – are familiar with the cramped feeling that comes from living in a smaller house. That’s why these house plans with ceilings over 8’ are among the most popular features for new homes: they allow for a bigger sense of space without being forced to expand the square footage of the home.

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. 

High ceilings also allow for the installation of bigger windows, giving more natural light and making the entire home feel more cheerful and bright. Some high ceilings house plans are single stories, though many are actually 1.5 stories – meaning that there is a second floor (which typically houses bedrooms and perhaps a bathroom) that covers a portion of the house. The high ceilings are present in the living room and dining room, giving owners the best of both worlds when it comes to high ceilings and extra bedroom space.

As mentioned, homeowners can typically expect three or more bedrooms and a similar number of bathrooms, as House Plans with High Ceilings often – but not always – fall on the larger side. These home plans may also include dormers, resulting in the one-and-a-half story home that maximizes the space while remaining somewhat economic in construction.

Why High Ceilings Make Sense for Your House


TPC author Rexy Legaspi
By

Go Tall with the Ceilings in Your New Home   After visiting some of the biggest basilicas in Europe and marveling at the incredibly high ceilings and their intricate designs, I can understand and appreciate why most of today’s homeowners list high ceilings on their “must-have” features. The appeal and charm of high ceilings go back through the centuries.   Even the great Italian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio wrote a chapter about high ceilings in his classic dissertation The Four Books on Architec
