kitchen ceiling lower than rest of house

Karen Wuestewald
6 years ago
My kitchen ceiling is a foot lower than the rooms around it, it's a regular texturized drywall ceiling. I am wanting to remove the soffit above the cupboards but got to wondering why they would have made the ceiling lower in that room. A higher ceiling would really open up my kitchen! Does anyone know why this may have been done this way?
My house was built in 1900, we bought it 5 yrs ago and I'm guessing the kitchen was done maybe in the 50's. I'm not good at guessing eras, the counters are yellow and walls are painted paneling.
thanks!
