Kitchen ceiling height/look of cabinets etc
Met with architect yesterday morning.
Suggested 10- 12 foot ceilings in kitchen which I vetoed.
Our house is 1810 and most other ceilings in main house are 8 feet. In a couple of rooms closest to kitchen ceilings are not quite 7 feet.
He feels like we should take advantage of additon and get height and that room because it is big will look closed in.
I want it to feel harmonious with rest of house.
Am I wrong? Will it look closed in? I am maybe willing to go to 9 feet but I can't picture how cabinets look at 8 feet vs 9 ft vs 10-12 ft -- any pictures?
The kitchen addition is approx 20x23 and we are thinking about a wood ceiling (tongue and groove not bead board)
