One way to make a smaller home plan feel larger is a cathedral or vaulted great room. One-story or simple house plans with a vaulted ceiling in the great room will appear larger and airier. Elevated ceiling also allow space for large windows that will bring natural light into your living spaces. Two story homeplans with a cathedral or vaulted ceiling may have a balcony or loft on the second floor that overlooks the great room and adds dimension.
