1. Exposed Beams
Using exposed roof beams or adding in wood beams can bring a new stylish look to your kitchen. Darker colors against a light ceiling contrast the colors and make space seem brighter.
2. Layered Cabinets
With such high ceilings, there’s going to be a ton of blank wall space you’ll want to break up. Layering and stacking up cabinets gives you that while also adding huge amounts of storage space to your kitchen.
3. Open and Welcoming Space
The appeal of vaulted ceilings is how open they make space feel, keeping it from feeling claustrophobic even with a bunch of people in the room. Bright whites and colors keep your space feeling lively while making it feel both welcoming and peaceful.
4. Full Hardwood
Full-wood ceilings are a beautiful way to add a homey feel to your kitchen. You can choose to use one kind of wood, or mix it up with multiple styles in a pattern.
5. Chandelier for Fine Dining Style
You can choose a chandelier to fit your style, but adding one in gives a more regal feel to your kitchen and dining area. Thanks to your high ceiling, you have the ability to place it up high and out of the way, meaning you can go much bigger without it being at eye level.
6. Skylight Space
Skylights are one of the best ways to introduce natural light to your kitchen. Adding them into your vaulted ceiling only opens up space more, with plenty of natural light and a light, breezy feel.
7. Brick Arch
If you’ve ever wanted your kitchen to be modeled after a European or Tuscan design this is your chance. Using a brick arch to cover your ceiling gives it a warm, underground feeling. If you don’t want this though, the bricks are a great way to break up the constant gray of appliances and colors in a more modern kitchen design.
8. Range Hood
A large range hood is a great item to build your kitchen style around. Going with metal gives you a chic modern look, while patterns or softer tones can blend seamlessly into the rest of your kitchen.
9. Glass Ceiling
Taking advantage of natural light and an open feel, going with a glass ceiling is a natural step. You’ll get tons of natural light into your kitchen even at night, making the space feel as open as possible.
10. Farmhouse Kitchen
Rough wood beams and cabinetry give your kitchen a farmhouse, cabin kind of feel. These spaces are innately pleasing because they feel welcoming, warm, and like home. Hang a few lanterns for extra lighting at night and you have a perfect little cottage kitchen without giving up space.
11. A Splash of Color
12. Tasteful Light Fixtures
You’ll have quite a bit of open-air space in your kitchen, and that lets you put any kind of light fixtures up that you want. Whether you want to style or function, you’ll be able to set your lights at the height you want and give your kitchen a finished and stylish look.
13. Cathedral Style with Stained Glass
Vaulted ceiling kitchens are great for skylights and windows, letting in plenty of natural light. Adding some stained glass pieces gives your kitchen plenty of color and decoration by taking advantage of all of that light.
14. Above-Kitchen Loft
With all the space you’re given with a high-vaulted ceiling, it’s a shame to waste it. Adding in a loft gives you space for any number of activities, from having a private romantic getaway to an indoor treehouse for the kids. If you’re lacking storage space in the kitchen you can keep extra items up there as well and then avoid digging them out of the garage or attic.
15. A Touch of Modern
A little modern flair is always appreciated in the kitchen. The wall space is broken up by using different materials in the construction, including wood, steel, and stone. With enough natural light coming in, you can go with darker colors without shrinking the size of the room too!
16. Calming Cohesion
A monotone scheme in your kitchen is easy on the eyes and has a calming effect when you spend time there. You can go with muted grays and whites for a brighter and more open look, or opt for darker grays and blacks for a cozy and warm style in your kitchen.
17. Tile Backsplash Art
A tile backsplash is easy to clean and will protect your walls from hot oil or other damaging projectiles when you’re cooking. You can go simple and match the tiles to your wall, throw in a pattern to break up wall space, or even go for a big piece of tile art that takes up most of the wall.
18. New Levels of Storage
Hanging racks for your most-used pots and pans lets you reach up and grab whatever you need when you need it. A vaulted ceiling affords you the ability to hang them high enough to be out of the way but always in reach.
19. Wine and Spice Racks
Whether you want to add it to your cooking recipes or sample your favorite blends, a vaulted ceiling gives you plenty of space for a tall wine rack. Not only does it make your wine collection readily available, but it adds a sense of style and sophistication to any kitchen.
20. Art Collector Dream Space
Murals and art are statements about who you are and what you enjoy. Paintings and other art pieces give you and guests something to both admire and enjoy in your kitchen, and with a vaulted ceiling, you have plenty of wall space. Hanging up art will help fill the empty spaces on your walls and give your kitchen a smoother eye flow when looking around.
21. Display Cabinets
We all have knick-knacks and antiques like fine china or silverware that we would love to show off instead of throwing them in a box in the garage. Adding display cabinets to your existing ones will help break up space and give you a place to show off your prized possessions, all while keeping you from having to dig them out on the rare occasion you want to use them.
22. Gothic Flairs
Using the dark colors that go with a gothic-style decor, you can make your kitchen feel both smaller and warmer. Any colors you decide to put on the walls or your appliances will pop, and your kitchen will feel welcoming and cozy.
23. Island Vibes
You can use rough woods for beams to mimic the look of driftwood. With a few decor additions, you can give your kitchen some island vibes, just open the windows and let the breeze blow through. Combined with the natural light in your kitchen, you can have a great sunny kitchen.
24. Long Windows
To make your kitchen seem even more open, consider putting in tall windows reaching from the floor to about ten feet, or including tall glass doors. The extra length will make the ceiling feel even taller, and give you even more natural light.
25. Beer Lovers Rejoice
With some extra shelves, you can throw up a few kegs and put in your own beer taps. Great for parties and showing off your tastes, installing a tap system in your kitchen is perfect for unwinding after a long day.
