A high ceiling lends a feeling of spaciousness to a room. Market research notes that consumers feel that high ceilings encourage clearer thinking, more energy, better sleep and better health, and the openness of a room with a high, open spaces can prime thoughts related to the concept of freedom. High ceilings are farther from the floor than standard ceilings, so choosing the right high ceiling lighting fixtures are important. High ceilings can make it difficult for light from standard fixtures to reach the floor, so have high ceiling lighting fixtures that hang low to help eliminate the problem. Install a large chandelier in the center of your ceiling to add a lot of light and a bit of elegant style. If you’d prefer your high ceiling lighting fixtures work more like spotlights, pick up some long pendant lights to hang in a row from your ceiling. You can buy both pendant lights and chandeliers in a variety of styles at your local home improvement store.
