Lighting for a large open-plan family room?

Hello. I would appreciate ideas on how to light my new open-plan family room. I've attached a plan for it. It's about 6m x 10m. Back of the room is bifolds. Front has 2 large windows, and there is a full-height window at the top right. The kitchen area (bottom left) has full height wall units in 6 'columns', each of which has a downlighter just in front. The kitchen island has 5 downlights over it. The dining table has a single lighting point from which I'll put a long light central to the table.

The room has visible steel beams on the ceiling (grey dotted lines). These are boxed in.

Kitchen area and dining area is ok, but I really don't like the 'grid' lighting of downlighters often put in large rooms like this. But I do like being able to flood up the place with lots of light if needed. Lights will be on dimmers so can be toned down.

Any advice/opinions on how to tackle the ceiling lighting in this room would be really appreciated.
