The height of your ceilings add a lot to the look and feel of your abode. Higher ceilings increase that sense of space and airiness – especially if you want a smaller footprint, a lower ceiling can make rooms easier to heat and feel cosier but will get hotter in summer. So, it is a significant element to consider when building a new home. According to the Building Code of Australia, the standard ceiling height is 2.4 metres for habitable rooms, and 2.1 metres for non-habitable rooms (bathroom, laundry, etc).
At Archiblox, along with incorporating passive design techniques into all our homes, the typical ceiling heights are 2.7 metres for kitchen/living areas & 2.55 metres for other rooms in the home, including non-habitable spaces. However, we can build up to 3m + with an upgrade, depending on the type of home you’re looking for.
