Scale & Proportion

Category:

Scale and proportion are important in creating a space that feels good to be in and makes sense on a human level. Small rooms with high ceilings give the feeling of volume, but are deceptive when it comes to furniture size and scale. Simply because an 11’ x 13’ bedroom has tall ceilings does not necessarily mean a king size bed will fit in it. Remember, we are living on the “floor plane”, not the ceiling plane. Also, with regard to scale and proportion, objects need to relate to each other well. An example of scale and proportion would be the correct size of crown moldings for the heights of your ceilings. An eight-foot ceiling would look correct with a 5” crown molding, but this molding would look too skinny in a room with fourteen-foot ceiling heights.
