I’m loving the new ceiling height in the kitchen. The original height was 15ft. Now we are at 23ft! It really makes the room feel so much more grand. Not to mention it gives it more of an airy feel.
Don’t get me wrong, a 15ft ceiling would have been beautiful. I wouldn’t have had any complaints. But when we put in the balcony, we had to raise the ceiling and now it’s 23ft. So I went from loving the ceiling height to LOVING the ceiling height!
Sometimes I wonder if my husbands main goal for putting in the balcony was because he knew it would raise the ceiling height. He’s 6’6 so everything feels short or small to him. Old houses can be brutal for him to walk in to. Especially ones with archways because he has to walk directly under the middle of the arch or he risks hitting his head. I don’t have these problems being 5’3. 😂
Either way, putting a balcony in the playroom overlooking the kitchen was one of our best ideas!
