A great way to turn your home’s high ceilings into a space that’s viable.
In a tiny nation like ours, attempts to cater to our ever-growing population has resulted in aesthetic units of dwindling sizes and the clustering of residential estates. With current home sizes being unreasonable for most, many are stuck trying to convert every corner into a space that functions.
Aligned with our nation’s wayward spatial masterplans, our search for more space goes UP. With this article, we’ll be addressing a “sky-high” problem faced by some Condo’ residents — guiding you on the utilisation of your vertical spaces.
Even though high ceilings bring about an air of prestige and grandeur, it does get frustrating at times to see potential spaces in your home untapped and unusable. Having spent a huge sum of money in the purchase of a home, it’s understandable that anyone would want to make the best out of every nook and crevice — be it for living or storage.
So If you own a unit that boasts these soaring attributes, (more often than not) you’d probably catch yourself pondering if anything could be done about these 2-storey tall “dead spaces”… could they somehow add a higher spatial value to your home living? — Our answer is Yes.
An addition of a Loft (or Mezzanine) is a great way to stretch existing perimeters and tap into more areas for home living. Located directly under the roofs or ceilings within the building, these newfound spaces are not only versatile but prove functional as well. With a presence that adds dimension to the room, it cuts through the vertical bleakness given off by high ceilings — resulting in better lighting, ventilation and even social grounds.
