The more space the better, right? Who loves natural lighting, spaciousness and design, keeps the architecture of the double-legged inside the heart! The right foot of a house refers to the height between the floor and the ceiling, the term "double height" means that height is twice the size of the traditional height.
Let's take a closer look at this subject: today, the standard height of the homes is approximately 2.70 meters, so a double height should be between five and eight meters high from the floor to the ceiling.
And do not confuse double-height double-legged high, are different things. In the first case, the double height must have twice the standard height of a house, as mentioned above. Already the high right foot can be considered the height between the floor and the ceiling being worth from the three meters.
But coming back to speak of the double height, it guarantees that sense of breadth and a design of exclusive decoration. Double-ceilinged environments tend to be more comfortable as well, since they are more airy and better illuminated.
This architectural feature blends greatly with integrated environments, with mezzanines and open stairways. The double-ceilinged houses boast a huge variety of decorative options, from incredible chandeliers to fireplaces, large plants and even glass enclosures to the second floor.
And it's not because the double-legged architecture looks gorgeous combined with stairs and mezzanines that houses need to have more than one floor. Single-storey houses can also receive this option and look magnificent.
Potentializing the decoration
Stairs, for example, can become the spectacle of the environment. They can be poured, with iron details - in the case of industrial decorations -, with glass bodyguards, marble, among others.
Remember that the ladder, if any, is the central element of the environment. It may be a spiral staircase, with a chandelier in the middle, or a straight model, with leaked stairs and maybe even a marble model with a glass bodyguard.
Furniture such as shelves, cabinets and shelves, for example, can be best explored in double-height homes. The larger the shelf, the more beautiful the design and arrangement of objects in the environment.
Pendant luminaires and chandeliers look great in double-legged environments, and in that case, the more detail the piece has, the better.
Environments integrated in double-legged composition are also a sure bet. The absence of walls delimiting the environments increases the sense of amplitude and potential of lighting in the place.
It is also worth to include in the project great works of art, panels and differentiated coatings.
Advantages vs. Disadvantages of Double Foot
We can start by talking about enlightenment. With the amount of space we gain with the double leg, it is necessary to invest in a chin-drop lighting. This style of architecture allows the application of pendants, chandeliers, spots and, the main among these: natural lighting. With the possibility of allocating large windows in these environments, the entrance of natural light is guaranteed, which undoubtedly is a huge advantage.
Air circulation is also an advantage both in double-legged homes. Sliding doors can help with the entry and exit of air.
In contrast, for the maintenance and cleaning of windows, for example, you may need to hire a company, which can weigh in the pocket. The construction of this type of project also does not usually go cheap, since the use of materials is bigger and the structure needs to be well reinforced. During winter, the spaciousness of the space also does not favor the desired thermal comfort, since the environment tends to get colder.
