Should we ditch 10 ft. ceiling?
We were contemplating whether it was worthwhile to have 10 ft. ceilings on our first floor? It was one of the things that was initially one of our "must haves" after being in several homes with 10 ft. ceilings, but now we're wondering if it really makes a difference. For those who opted for 10 ft. would you have been ok with 9ft.? What made you go with 10 ft. over 9 ft.? Does it make a huge difference? Our house is fairly large; so, I think it would support 10 ft. ceilings fine. Our great room will have vaulted ceilings and our foyer is open too. So, part of our 1st floor already has open ceiling spaces. I'm just wondering if I'll regret it down the road. What if 9 ft. ceilings become the 8 ft. ceilings of today 30 years from now?
