Ceilings: Bring Your Kitchen to New Heights!

Having high ceilings in your home does a lot for the space- it can make it feel larger, give it a grander feel, and even gives you a whole new avenue of decorating. What can it do for you in the kitchen?

The first thing that it does for your kitchen is gives you opportunities to decorate in ways that you normally couldn’t. Having dark colors can make the room seem small if there are low ceilings, but this effect will not be as great if you use darker colors in a room with high ceilings.

Also, the possibility for more storage opens up when there is more room for cupboards and hutches. You would have more room to store things above the fridge, which helps keeps appliances and food off of the counters.

Having higher ceilings will also mean that you will have more wall space to work with. Consider having a wall that is primarily windows, letting in a lot of natural light. This will give the room a cleaner feel.  Having skylights in your ceiling would only maximize this effect!

When it comes to the lighting in your kitchens, trying to have chandeliers above the table can feel very cramped. However, if you had higher ceilings you would have the option to keep the lighting fixture higher, while still enjoying the beauty and the ways it complements the rest of the kitchen.

Who doesn’t love beams? These can add a lot of character to a kitchen, but can sometimes be a little too much in low ceilings. Indulge yourself in the beauty of quality beams with your high ceiling kitchen!
