Ceilings dont have to be a flat plane, though its certainly easier and less costly to make this decision before construction or during a major remodeling and in a one-story space. Van Winkle has found coffered ceiling treatments are attracting a lot of attention these days among consumers. That could mean a pitched, vaulted, or arched shape that rises upward and provides a greater sense of airiness, drama, and light. Homebuyers who purchase townhomes in communities developed by Chicago-based Lexington Homes are increasingly requesting to upgrade to ceilings with volume, particularly tray designs in master and secondary bedrooms, says sales director Todd Lesher. “Ceiling upgrades are one of the most common selections we encourage buyers to make, as they do not add a lot of cost, but make a big impact,” he says. “Buyers like that the volume helps open up the space and make the rooms seem larger and more expansive.” Key to adding any volume to a ceiling is carefully considering the relationship of the elements to the size of the room to maintain proper visual scale, says Zuber. “You never put a tall ceiling in a small space or a short ceiling in a large room,” he says.
Lexington Homes, a developer of townhomes and single-family homes in Chicago, uses wallpaper to woo buyers to its upscale townhome communities. “We have never worried about turning off buyers with wallpaper,” says principal Jeff Benach. But as Chicago designer Jessica Lagrange points out, wallpaper is an expensive, highly individual decorative treatment. Theres a chance that the choice may not be a good fit for every buyer. If a resale is in a homeowners immediate future, they should have a game plan for its potential removal, she says. To help buyers or sellers who are curious about using wallpaper to complement an interior without making it look dated, here are some tips on products, trends, and techniques from design experts.
