9' ceiling in a kitchen
May 2, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Does anyone have solid wood slab style cabinets that reach the top of a nine foot ceiling? I want to have my cabinets reach the ceiling, but am unsure of how skinny they will look, and if I go wide, if it will expand and contract too much due to changes In humidity. What should my doir measurements be? If anyone has pictures, that would be great. Thank you for your help!!

how big is your kitchen? that is the layout? style? it's all about scale and proportion relative to the space and other pieces in it. What appears skinny in one room is ok in the other...

You could put some 1 ft high cabinets that run horizontal above the tall ones. Put glass doors and lights in them. Great place to store items not used every day. Take a look on Houzz, I am sure you will see some examples.

there are usually a 4" gap between the top of upper cabinets and ceiling and covered by mouldings to allow for some expansion in the wood.
