Design Dilemma

Partial vaulted ceiling and furniture layout and design

kitty999January 23, 2013
We've purchased a small home which is being built right now. It has a walk out basement and backs onto a canal and you can see ships going by. Because of this, we took out the fireplace in the family room and added windows that are 119" w by 67" h. For some reason the builder put a partial vaulted ceiling that is 128" L x 13' w in the family room closest to the windows. The balance of the family room and kitchen has 9' ceilings. We don't like this and are wondering is it easier for us to enclose the vault or to vault the balance of the family room? Oh, we also removed the wall that is closest to the Master bedroom and laundry room. So the room is now 23' long.
Also, could someone offer suggestions for furniture arrangement. The primary purpose of this room is TV watching and we'd like 2 reclining chairs and it would be great if they swiveled. We like an updated style. WE also need some type of Media unit or build ins for the TV. Any suggestions for drapery, blinds, area rug, couch, paint would be greatly appreciated. I've attached pictures of the layout and hardwood.
The hardwood will be in the entire space. The kitchen is white shaker style with custom hood and the Island is 7' by 4'. Any suggestions for countertops and stools would be appreciated.
As you can tell, I would love help with the whole space.

I would love to work with you on your project. If the house isn't built yet I would change the vault in the family room.

Thank you so much but the home is being built right now and I guess it's my ignorance that I didn't know it would have a vault. Not sure if we should remove it or increase the vault.

Having the higher ceiling is always nice.
