Ceiling Detail of the ,000 Kitchen Remodel

I got a bunch of questions about the original ceiling and archway of the $20,000 kitchen remodel in the latest Rate This Remodel feature. So I thought I’d show the old and new compared here:

Kathy Price-Robinson

What’s neat about the story, for me, is that Dani had a lot of time to think about her kitchen. The archway detail into the breakfast room is something she had thought about for years, and she was clear on the molding she wanted. Because of all of this planning, her contractor said, she was one of the easiest clients he has ever worked with.

So if getting the funds to do your remodel is taking longer than you’d like, put that time to use the way Dani did. The eventual remodel will be much better for it.
