Ceilings that make you look up: Kitchen from the Clarkson Plan #1117

To many, the kitchen is the most important room in the house. Beyond its mere utilitarian purposes—preparing food, washing dishes—it’s a place to make memories, as well as meals. The kitchen has become a universal hub for domestic and social activity: bonding with family, having a glass of wine with friends, doing homework, making phone calls, gossiping about the neighbors, and more. With so many varied interests and options taking place in one location, it’s hardly surprising that the kitchen is one of the most fussed-over and thoughtfully conceived rooms in any house.
