Rooms with high ceilings have great potential with their overarching designs and lighting fixtures. Between recessed lights, pendant lights, chandeliers, ceiling fans, and other lighting fixtures, there are many ways to highlight tall ceilings and nearby architecture. With that in mind, we have compiled 25 of our favorite rooms with tall ceilings and analyzed them to give you some great lighting ideas for tall ceilings.
The sputnik design is one of the hallmarks of mid century style. In modern iterations, these lights now put unique spins on that style through different materials, structures, and finishes. Whether your home fits more into modern aesthetics or mid century style, choosing a mid century modern light is a great way to add style to your room.
In all seasons rooms or indoor/outdoor areas, ceiling fans are commonly used to circulate air and provide lighting. When choosing a fan for these spaces, especially if they have tall ceilings, consider its placement, blade number, and motor to ensure that it will provide enough airflow for the space. Also, if there is any chance of the fan being exposed to rain or wind, use an outdoor ceiling fan approved for those conditions.
Another facet to consider when choosing a light for hallways, living rooms, and other spaces with tall ceilings is how those lights look at different angles and perspectives. By looking at the room from all angles, you can choose lighting fixtures that fit the space perfectly from all perspectives.
Coastal style can be created through the proper color schemes and materials. The lighting fixture you choose for a coastal style room can highlight both those elements. For example, a rattan chandelier draws in the calming cream tones of the ocean and highlights a natural material associated with the beach. With that in mind, consider how the lighting fixture can subtly or boldly convey your unique style.
Bathrooms are an area worth splurging on to show off your style and create the proper tone. Aside from the essential task lighting of vanity lights, adding in a single light to create ambiance and highlight the bathroom's tall ceilings is an ideal way to create a luxurious bathroom.
Master bedrooms are spaces for unwinding and relaxation. The lighting fixture you choose for that space can help define the tone and tie into nearby furniture, architecture, and accessories. In this case, a simple stick light coordinates well with all the straight lines elsewhere in the room. Although it may be a fairly simple light, it fits in perfectly to highlight the room's minimalist modern aesthetic.
Exposed beams have a large impact on the room's tone and style depending on their layout and finish. In both cases, you can connect the beams to the lighting fixtures through similar colors and designs to create a well defined style. In addition to that, the hanging lights will help bridge the gap between the ceiling and eye level design to naturally guide the eye throughout the room.
Often with open concept rooms, you will see one light centered over the living space and another over the dining table. While this is a great way to differentiate the two spaces, you can also choose to use one light over a singular space or in the middle of the entire room to highlight the length and height of your room.
If your home has a natural wood ceiling highlighting its elevation and style, it is vital to consider what light will work with the wood to define your style. The fixture can lean into purely rustic, modern farmhouse, or coastal style depending on its finishes and structure. However, even luxury lights like the Byron Chandelier can pair well with the wood and create a new style: rustic glam. Even if this is not your exact style, the lighting fixture you choose can balance with the nearby wood tones and convey your unique aesthetic.
The lighting fixtures you hang in your kitchen are important for both ambient and task lighting. Oftentimes, pendant lights and chandeliers are not enough to create the necessary task lighting. That is why it's wise to use recessed lights or undercabinet lights to create that light and ensure the room is properly illuminated. Rest assured, the inclusion of under cabinet lights or recessed lights does not take away from your pendant lights; instead, it allows those elements to shine as necessary accents and lights in the room.
Colors lean into either warm or cold temperatures based on how they incorporate red or blue tones respectively. In any case, whether your room's color scheme uses mostly warm or mostly cool tones in the paint and furniture, a warm metallic lighting fixture can help create an inviting space. Gold, brass, and copper are three popular options for warm metallic finishes and they are available in lights of all styles.
If you are creating a moody dining space with a vaulted wood ceiling, the lighting fixtures you choose should tie into the overarching aesthetic and convey the proper tone. Since these lights feature candles and not bright downlighting, the lights themselves reinforce the room's style and create perfect ambient lighting.
Using numerous pendant lights over a kitchen island is a common practice for creating balanced lighting and beautiful styling. When hanging lights over an island, be sure that they are at least 30-36 inches away from the island's surface. If the fixtures cast light outwards at eye level, place them at a higher elevation so that no one is blinded by the lights. Finally, the lights should be at least 6 inches from the island's edges to ensure no one bumps into them.
Tall ceilings can be accented with lighting fixtures in many unique ways. Whether you are decorating a large open concept area, a grand foyer, or a bedroom, you now have many high ceiling lighting ideas to help you craft your personal style.
