To maximize your vertical space, be smart with your lighting. Instead of using tabletop task lighting that keeps the light low on the walls, use track lights. Track lighting can update the look of your rooms and make it much easier to change the illumination to make a play room, family room or craft room more flexible and functional. Track lights don't look like oversized tin cans anymore, and you don't necessarily need an electrician to connect them, either. You can even find fixtures that plug into your existing outlets for a fast in easy installation.
