Vaulted ceilings are perfect for making any room feel larger and more open. If your kitchen has a vaulted ceiling, do all you can to take advantage of the extra height by incorporating some of the following classic kitchen design ideas.

  • Install extra tall cabinets to increase storage space to avoid filling up the garage or basement. This is especially useful for smaller homes.
  • Increase lighting naturally with a skylight, large picture window or high round window. Increase directional light with pendant lighting to illuminate work areas.
  • Highlight your vaulted ceiling, and define the room with dark stained wooden beams.
  • Embrace French country style by making the most of your extra wall space. You can hang a pot rack above the island without the kitchen becoming cluttered, or you can display attractive kitchen items on tall shelves.
  • Set up your seating area just beyond the meal preparation area to socialize with guests while you work. The high ceilings will prevent the room from feeling crowded.
