Sometimes we need to bring our wonderfully long legs back to human height (really, this is a good problem to have- in the human case or the room case). The best way to do this (ohmygosh don't you DARE install some sort of false ceiling) is to add a touch of moulding (aka picture rail) at your desired height, 9'-10' is about right for an average room. Then paint the ceiling, new moulding and the space above your new moulding all the same color (and any other trim in between, such a crown moulding). Speaking of crown, this is a wonderful opportunity to install some beefy crown moulding because, baby, you got those long legs- might as well flaunt 'em.
