30 Vaulted Ceiling Lighting Ideas For Any Home

Vaulted ceilings add height and dimension to any room, but don’t forget the lighting. With all that space, lights in a vaulted ceiling are the perfect opportunity to make a striking statement.

Depending on your style, you can choose from various light fixtures, including chandeliers, pendant lights, or angled ceiling lights. All these types of lights can accent different styles and make a unique statement in any room with a vaulted ceiling.

Based on the height of your room, you’ll want to determine the length and size of your vaulted ceiling lighting. With higher ceilings, you’ll typically want a larger light to fit the room’s scale.

We’ve got you covered if you’re looking for the perfect light for your vaulted ceilings. Our gallery includes 30 stunning vaulted ceiling light ideas.
