Or Ceiling, as the case may be. In some design projects raising the ceiling can have dramatic affects on a room. I was asked to design a remodel for a Mountain Cottage.
The old Kitchen was small and seemed to be an after thought attached to the dining room. The Dining room had a dropped ceiling that protruded into the Kitchen.
Crawling into the attic, we found that the cathedral ceiling in the adjacent Living room ran right above the Kitchen/ Dining room combo.
So we tore out the old ceiling and installed wonderful reclaimed timber beams taking them clear thru to the Living room.
We took out the old closet in the Living room and installed a wet bar.
Finally we removed the old paneling and wood around the fireplace replacing it with a custom Limestone fireplace.
Here is the finished Kitchen and Living room. My client is a Decorator in her own right and added all of the wonderful finishing touches to this charming space.
Don't you agree that taking out the ceiling made all of the difference?
