If you think raising the ceiling in a room wouldn’t make much of a difference, you are wrong. When the ceiling was raised during the kitchen remodel at the special needs orphanage Global Partners in Life supports in China, it made a huge difference in the feel and function of the room! Check out the before and after photos below.
With the ceiling raised, it gave the entire room a much larger feeling and this created more space for additional cabinets. The lighter colored new ceiling also made the room appear brighter and larger.
We were able to do a couple of enhancements to the ceiling with this remodel. As you can tell in the picture below, we provided better lighting. Additionally, we were able to put a heater in the ceiling. The city where the special needs orphanage is located is in northern China, so it gets extremely cold in the winter.
I am very thankful that Global Partners in Life received the contributions needed to provide this greatly needed kitchen remodel for some very appreciative and special people.
