x Post in Home Deco - Please help light my dining room

Posted by meangoose (My Page) on

My home builder *loved* vaulted ceilings. Personally, I'm not a big fan, but dh is, and this house was a good compromise for us.

With that said, the vaulted ceiling and lighting in my dining room is driving me nuts.

The ceiling has this odd triangle indentation in it. I have no good way to describe this, so I hope it comes through on the pictures. There are two recessed cans for lighting the entire room. That's it.

I have brought a bevy of lamps into the room for temporary lighting assistance. What I really want is a chandelier of some sort - but I can't figure out how to make that work with the ceiling. Anyone have a suggestion?

There are lots of creative ideas that come to mind. If you use a swag hook kit and a recessed can conversion kit you could put just about anything in there.
