Wood panel on vaulted ceiling makes dining room dark at night
June 5, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I like the look of the vaulted wood ceilings we have in the living and dining rooms, but lighting is poor. A decorator suggested painting the ceilings white, which I'm not excited about doing. What other lighting options would give enough light to the dining room and keep the atmosphere soft? The room has very little wall space because of windows along the length (lovely/bright during the day). There are glass panels across from the windows. The room has large openings to the family and living rooms on the shorter ends.
