Vaulted ceilings are rare in a kitchen but really give a grand feel to the space. With the loftiness it can feel like something is missing, but since you have a shiplap wall treatment I would suggest to keep it simple. I've thought of a few ideas you could consider to add a more fin...

Hi Susan,

You have some great updates you are considering in the space. With the open space between the mirrors, adding in something would help to fill in that space.
