Take It to the Ceiling

>> Monday, June 13, 2011

I really love, when the budget allows, to take upper cabinets all the way to the ceiling, i.e. eliminating the dust shelf. I am working on a fun little kitchen makeover here in Boston. The existing kitchen already has some great elements, like soapstone countertops, that we are preserving. But among other things, the plan is to add some additional millwork, a new backsplash, new hardware, and new appliances. The goal with the additional millwork will be to extend the existing cabinets to the ceiling. At almost ten feet, I think it's going to be a pretty dramatic addition.

 See Anne Turner Carroll's kitchen makeover for a creative and inexpensive way to 
get the full height upper cabinet look without going custom.

Agreed. Cabinets to the ceiling are a must for me. Or at least on my wish list.

I like them both ways. I like when they stop and allow for a little breathing room and also when they go all the way.
Gorgeous images...

I completely agree! Luckily the original cabinets in our 1960 ranch have cabinets up to the ceiling... I mean our ceiling are 8 feet, so they're not extra tall, but still - it's a perk, especially since we decided to keep them during our reno. Pictures on the blog to come! Almost finished!

ps- thanks for the comment! :)
