EXPERT ADVICE: Want More Ideas? Ask a Lighting Professional. 

What is the best kind of light fixture to use on a vaulted ceiling?    - Emma W.

In a room with a vaulted ceiling, it is best to use fixtures that can be adjusted downward, so that they cast light both upward and downward. Many pendants and chandeliers will work well in that type of space. Lights that are too close to the ceiling can create shadows.
