Coving for High/Tall Ceilings
What is the best kind of coving for high ceilings?
If you are lucky enough to live in a property with high ceilings, large windows and plenty of light then you can afford to choose bold interior decorative mouldings. Not only do you have more scope for deeper coving, those choices can also extend to deeper skirting, door mouldings, wall panelling and ceiling mouldings to hold chandeliers. You can take more risks in your interior decorating decisions whilst still making considered choices.
Other top tips for interior decorative mouldings in rooms with high ceilings
Use a coving pelmet
Dressing large windows is definitely a challenge and our pelmet coving is a considered choice for hiding all the ugly fixings whilst looking neat and more contemporary than traditional treatments. Carrying the curtains right to the floor creates a pleasing frame around the window and will soften the space.
Gallery Wall effect
Get creative with our interior decorative wall mouldings and create your own period panelling effect which is perfect for a gallery wall. Sometimes the simplest of design techniques can be the most effective. For relatively little cost you can achieve a really elegant look. We sell a whole range of profiles from modern, classic to highly decorative depending on the period of your property or the style you want to achieve.
Avoid using large profile mouldings in small rooms and we recommend sticking to a limited colour palette. Harmony and balance in a space is key and muted colours help to achieve this.

Use LED Uplighting
With high ceilings, you can introduce sophisticated mood lighting by using indirect lighting across our coving lighting collection. You may wish to incorporate this at a high dado rail height if you have artwork that deserves highlighting or highly decorative rococo mouldings that sing beneath a warm glow.
Wall panelling in rooms with high ceilings
Wall panelling is a great option for rooms with high ceilings and we now offer a Design Service where we design a space using CAD software. This will help you visualise your room with the different configurations of panelling, product pairing with our other interior products to complete the look.
