High walls give more space to storage. You can have nice shelves on the walls either with window doors or with glass doors. Window doors mean you are covering up space and glass doors mean you are letting others see what’s in there.
So here you can display good artworks, sculptures, etc. They are concealed yet visible. You can choose to display your valuable art works here because here they remain safe and yet visible.
High walls can also be used to build a library at home. Books not only provide a visual delight to a room but also, a delight for visitors and for the residents too, it is a solace to have a library in such a magnificent room.
Add a nice wooden ladder and you have a practical library right in your living room.
You have another advantage. High walls also can hold large paintings or even life-sized paintings comfortably on them.
Large floor space calls for large furniture too.
Small furniture or materials or things will be easily lost in the magnificence of a large room, with high ceiling and windows. At the same time, do throw in good measure nice and comfortable pillows wherever you can.
