Alice in the Rabbit Hole
My first condo was on the parlor floor of a house and had 14-foot ceilings, and the main room was roughly 18'x 25', although a loft area was carved out of that. I actually felt very uncomfortable and exposed in that room, with its 11-1/2 foot, floor length windows.
My next condo, in the same block, was on the third and fourth floors of the same type of house, with 10-foot ceilings on my living room floor, again with an 18'x 25' living room. I preferred spending time on the bedroom level with 8 foot ceilings and nicely sized but not overly large bedrooms, and the MBR was actually the smaller bedroom.
My newest house has 8-foot ceilings, and a third floor living room (often used as a MBR) with a dark wood peaked ceiling that drops to 5'foot knee walls at the sides.
There is a small dining room, open to the entry, that closed up will make a room that is about 7x10 and the plan is to have a banquette/daybed of twin width at one end and the TV at the other with a table of some sort in between, a very cocoon-like den.
Rather than wanting bigger and bigger, I find myself moving into smaller and smaller areas. Anybody else having this type of experience?
