    Depends on where you can relocate your return, and how easily it can be done.

    It likely wouldn't hurt anything, but might not help either. You've increased the general mass of the room by making it bigger (taller), which will require some more cooling in there.

    One of the possible easier/better options would be to get a ceiling fan in there and let it do it's magic.

    an ugly return vent on a freshly completed cathedral ceiling? perish the thought my friend. it will be a nightmare to clean in the future. strongly suggest a nice ceiling fan, perhaps one with a 4 ft drop down pole, and enjoy.
