The distance between the canopy and ceiling is 2 feet. That is the true ceiling of the apartment.

Hello! The hood is a Broan PM360. It's a little loud, but does the job, even at that height.

I have been searching for a library ladder like this for my kitchen, which has cabinetry all the way up to a 10 foot ceiling...a real challenge when you are 5'2" ! Can anyone tell me where this came from?

Not sure about this particular ladder, but we've used Alaco Ladder products: http://alacoladder.com

Here's one of our projects with their rolling ladder:

Hi. Thanks for your question. I actually sourced a Putnam Rolling ladder from a place called Restoration Resources in Boston. Spiral Stairs of America also makes custom rolling ladders for a good price: http://www.spiralstairsofamerica.com/library.php

That's a great looking kitchen. They could be 3/4" honed absolute black granite, or they could even be a solid surface material...Corian has one in charcoal gray called Medea that's really fabulous.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rather than lightening up from the bottom up, try it from the top down. This drop houses recessed lights and a range hood, and delineates the kitchen from the rest of the open space without blocking it off into a completely separate room.
Jason Ball Interiors, LLC added this to How to Make a Tall Room Feel Right
Get creative with a ceiling structure. This geometric structure above the kitchen area serves a dual purpose. It provides a way to bring the mechanicals (lighting, venting, etc.) down to exactly where they're needed. It also adds an architectural element in what otherwise would be a large white box of a space. The dark painted lower plane of the ceiling mirrors the dark countertop, creating a beautifully balanced contemporary kitchen.
Lisa Frederick added this to Recessed Lighting 101
Special considerations: One important factor is the electrical load of your circuit. If you want more lights than your present circuitry can handle, an electrician will be able to help you devise a safe solution. If you'd like to be able to control the amount of light throughout the day and evening, add dimmers.Cost: Again, this varies widely depending on your space. But as a rule, you can plan on roughly $100 to $150 per fixture for a basic model, including materials and professional installation. Costs go up from there.
Susan Stieglitz added this to Soffit
A kitchen is another typical location for a soffit, though one that sits below the ceiling itself and even contains the hood for the range is unusual.

Beyond the basics of laminate, solid and stone surfaces, you will find a number of phenolic resin surfaces on the market that promise lower cost than solid surfaces (albeit a higher cost than laminate), but a more natural, worm appearance that comes from blending resin with paper, hemp, wood and plant products. Phenol resin makes these surfaces waterproof, sanitary and strong. Yet you can cut, scribe, and router the 1 1/4in. panels with woodworking tools, making installation possible, if not easy for a homeowner. Over time, you can sand the surface lightly and renew with a coat of miner oil, tung oil, or linseed oil. At about $18 per sq. ft. the price is lower than other vanity surfaces, but just as impressive.
