It has two big windows down one of the long sides and although nice and lig ht it feels very cold and far too high for its size. I'm considering loweri ng the ceiling.
I did this in my previous place but more for the purposes of putting in som e recessed lights and covering the fact that it used to be two rooms, I onl y lost about six inches of room height in that case. It was done with a woo den framework and plasterboard which I had skimmed.
In the latest case, I need to lose more like 600mm of height and I'm wonder ing if I should just do the same thing or does anyone have any other ideas?
One issue is that the two large windows go up quite high and I'd need to ha ve some kind of sloped arrangement where my new ceiling meets the window re veals (and the walls are 22 inches thick!)
