We have progress! They started putting boards on the ceiling yesterday. It’s looking great. I really think it adds texture and visual interest in the room. Today, they continued on the ceiling and brought in a few of the cabinets. I am SO happy I decided to extend the cabinets to the ceiling. You can see a gap between the top of the cabinet and the ceiling in these pictures. The crown molding will cover up this gap when it is put up. Everything will be painted white (cabinets, walls, and ceiling).
I did a previous post about woodwork on ceilings. Here are a few photos I used for inspiration for the ceiling. Notice how there are no gaps between the ceiling and the top of the cabinets. I like how this eliminates wasted space. Even though those top cabinets are not easily accessible, it’s still more store. And you don’t have an awkward gap between the top of the cabinets and you’re 10 ft. ceiling.
