When you can't remove soffits
How do you minimize them? I've been reading everything I can find on this issue because our soffits have HVAC, etc in them. They are big 14 and 1/2 inch deep by 12 inch high in a kitchen with an 8 foot high ceiling.
Is it less expensive to keep and incorporate them in new cabs? Or more expensive to make them look nice with new cabs? We are retired and need to watch our budget for a reno.
