kitchen cabinet size - help!
I recently got a fairly reasonable estimate for refacing our current cabinets. Right now they are 30" height with a 10" space above the cabinet. The guy who gave us the estimate told us he can fill in the currently empty space as if it was a ceiling height cabinet originally. So that would make the cabinet height I'm guessing 37" then he would add a 3" crown moulding. Is this going to be too overwhelming for this space? Every time I look at the cabinets I imagine them being 7-10" taller and I feel like they'll be too tall and awkward. Am I crazy? Should we have a bulkhead instead? I spent 1/2 a day and a whole 2 boxes of SOS pads cleaning above these cabinets after the previous owners of this house (who mind you, should be ASHAMED of themselves!), and I cannot see myself dealing with this useless, filthy, gapped space for very much longer.
Anyone who has pictures of a similar circumstance, please post!! I appreciate the help!!
PS: my kitchen size is around 10x10 and my ceiling height is 7'10"
