15 Show-Stopping Homes with High Ceilings That Make Us Want One Too

October 21, 2022

Lofty homes with lofty designs.

Save to Qanvast Board

Keeping it real: most of us can only dream of having a grand home with sky-high ceilings.

It doesn’t help that homes are getting smaller, what with our land-scarce Little Red Dot, which makes finding properties like maisonettes and lofts akin to looking for a needle in a haystack.

A very competitive haystack.

That doesn’t stop us from feasting on these stunning high ceiling looks we’ve found though!


1. An uber-cool HDB maisonette with industrial vibes

This awe-inspiring Harry Potter-esque bookshelf in this maisonette will make anyone look twice! The curved shelves blend in seamlessly with the brick walls to dramatise the height (and magic) of the space.


2. An elegant condo penthouse with art and decor highlights

What’s an elegant home without some tasteful art to dress the walls? These art pieces and other decor add visual weight to the room that might otherwise look too plain.


3. A charming condo penthouse with full-height drapery

If you’ve ever wondered how high curtains can go for a high ceiling… The answer is as high as they can!

To really bring out the high ceiling, the owners of this penthouse chose to go with full-height curtains, and chose a solid colour to complement the various textured furnishings in the room.


4. A stunning HDB loft with sky-high windows

With a home like this, we’d be gazing out the windows all the time!

The owners of this HDB loft (a very rare property type!) draped the double-height windows with a regular-height curtain for visual interest, allowing moonlight to filter in from the windows at the top at night.

As they say, less is more – and in the case of this maisonette, keeping the decor simple helps to frame the excellent view that the balcony with its high ceiling provides.

Plus, it makes use of the natural light coming in, with furniture placed close together to amplify the cosy feel.


6. A space-efficient 1-bedder condo with floor-to-ceiling carpentry

The owner of this home went all in with floor-to-ceiling carpentry to make the most of its limited floor area!

You can see how this seamless floor-to-ceiling connection not only contrasts the light ceiling, but also makes lots more storage space to keep the area clutter-free.

(And there can never be too much storage space… right?)


7. A grand HDB maisonette with an airy balcony

Check out this other rare type of HDB maisonette – it’s got a double-height balcony that the homeowners have turned into a ‘second’ living area. We can already picture ourselves relaxing here, soaking in the morning light with a steaming mug in hand.

To visually elongate the already tall space, large format concrete slabs cover the entire side wall, from the floor to the double-height ceiling.


8. A well-lit HDB maisonette that recreates an ‘al fresco’ dining vibe

We wish we had such impressive windows! It’s just what you’d need to soak in the indoor-outdoor vibes with the dining area next to the windows.

The decor is simple, yet reminiscent of the outdoors with some potted plants and small trinkets.

Love the 70s New York loft vibes? Eyeball this iconic brick feature wall with steel-framed windows which is a nod to the raw, industrial look of such lofts.

Paired with the white walls, the overall look is bright and timeless.


10. An HDB maisonette with a multi-purpose bar counter with a view

The owners of this maisonette had a novel idea: setting up a breakfast bar and a laundry yard in the balcony.

Besides enjoying quiet mornings with a cuppa and the seriously impressive view, this gives the homeowners plenty of space for a dedicated laundry area to sort and fold clothes, unlike in most service yards which feel too cramped.


11. A bright and cosy HDB maisonette with a herringbone feature wall

This herringbone wall adds a dramatic flair to this maisonette, emphasising the high ceiling and creating contrast with the white walls surrounding it.

To balance it all out, accents like area rugs and throw pillows are mixed in to soften the space.


12. A luxurious condo penthouse with bold furnishings and fixtures

Who doesn’t love some drama? This penthouse does it well, stamping in personality with an opulent marble feature wall with gold accents that’s sure to wow visitors.

The black-and-gold curtains also add a unique twist, drawing attention to the impressive windows.

Besides making a bold statement, it highlights the striking vertical space the high ceiling provides.

As you can see, the answer to elevating the look of your home sometimes lies in the lighting.

The vaulted ceiling naturally draws our eyes up to create an impression that the room is even more spacious and airy than it actually is.

It looks real comfy too – fancy a movie night here, anyone?

With fluted panelling, a trellis and an eye-catching pendant light, the living room of this penthouse is full of depth and texture.

The dark colours round off the look by anchoring the space visually, keeping the space grounded despite its high ceiling.
