Advice for hiding soffit
We are starting our kitchen remodel next month and I have spent many hours on this site looking and gotten lots of helpful ideas. Just one more kink to work out before ordering cabinets and I am looking for suggestions for our issue.
The plan is to knock out the wall between our current kitchen and office to double the size of the kitchen. We would love to knock out the entire soffit but upon further inspection, we have several pipes running above the eat in kitchen and into some of the kitchen that are not able to be moved. I am including a design of our kitchen so that you can see how the soffit will look as is. I would love suggestions of how you would minimize the look of the soffit. (The drawing cuts off but the soffit will continue about 10 feet to the left, over the eat in kitchen). We have 8 foot ceilings and are using a combination of 36 and 30 inch cabinets with crown molding on top.
Thanks in advance for your help!
