Making a Room’s Odd Dimensions Work

Sometimes rooms can present challenges that can turn out to be blessings in disguise. Take a recent job of mine. The project was to paint a roller coaster in a young man’s room, but the ceiling rose three feet higher on one side of the room. The solution was to use the difference in wall height to my advantage to give the illusion of steep tracks and to make the cars appear to be rolling toward you. From there the roller coaster looped and corkscrewed around the remaining walls, behind windows and doors while allowing space for other things to later be hung on the walls. In the end, the varying wall height turned out to be a huge advantage for the subject. I love that when it happens!
