Don’t Forget About the Kitchen Ceiling
Use Paint Effects
Try painting the molding a different color than the ceiling to draw attention to the detail and make it a little more dramatic. Even a slight shade darker or lighter will create a wonderful effect. Think about how the entire space is going to make you feel when you are in it. Sometimes the smallest details can have the greatest impact.
What a Great Kitchen Ceiling Can Do
A great kitchen ceiling design can give the room unique character. This client’s love of peacocks drove the decision to have an artist come in and create a hand-painted peacock feather on the ceiling. The space became warmer by converting their vaulted ceiling to a 9-foot flat ceiling and adding a taller tray ceiling over the island. This gave them the height they loved while adding a better proportion to the room. See this Dix Hills, NY kitchen project here.
This coffered kitchen ceiling detail creates a strong architectural statement balanced beautifully against the dark floors. We designed this kitchen for a wonderful family in Oyster Bay Cove.
You can be creative with the sunken panels on a coffered ceiling by painting them a darker shade or by adding wallpaper, metal or wood. See this Garden City kitchen project here.
