 o
kitchen 10' ceiling height with soffit/ tray

Posted by reb2 (My Page) on

I'm hoping someone can help me! My kitchen has a ceiling height of ten feet. THere will be ducts running above cabinets for HVAC that are 10x16". (bringing ceiling down to 9'). I cant really afford to do stacked cabinets. What should I do with the space between the top of the cabinets and the soffit? build it up 12" with moulding?? Should I do a tray ceiling? Kitchen size is 19x17

Have you considered 60" wall cabinets? Medallion @ Menard's has them as a standard (non-custom) cabinet size.

Can you bring the whole kitchen ceiling down to 9 ft and not have a soffet. You'd still have 12" of crown but your kitchen seems big enough that it could handle it. The pic I posted is 42" cabinets, 9 ft ceilings & 12" of crown. (Not my kitchen). There was a recent thread with multiple pics of 12" of crown with 42" cabinets & 9 ft. ceilings. I have 9 ft. ceilings but my cabinets are 45" so only about 8" of crown but my kitchen is not as large as yours.

This is red lover's kittchen, 9 ft ceilings, 42" cabinets & crown to the ceiling.
Red lover, hope you don't mind I posted a pic of your kitchen.

Thanks so muchfor your responses. Romy if I bring cabinets to 9' with moulding should I do a tray in the center to maximize 10' ceiling height (with cove lighting?)

Hopefully some people with more experience will chime in. I'm not sure how it will look to have 42" cabinets, 12" of crown molding with a soffet above & then a trayed ceiling. I was wondering if you could bring the whole kitchen ceiling down to the level of the bottom of the soffet (9 ft) so that you don't have a soffet.

If you go on Houzz under kitchen photos & search for "tray ceiling", there are about 1000 pictures. Here's one.
