The cathedral ceiling gives this space an open feeling, making it seem larger than it really is. The skylights let the natural light in to flood the space.--((this is for the 2 lights, lighting above the stove.
I like this idea for cookbooks in a basket! Maybe keep on top of fridge! UPDATE: USED a basket I got for Christmas and put my most used cookbooks in it. Placed on top of the fridge to clear out cabinet space. Love it!
