The couple furnished a room down the hall from all the family bedrooms in their two-story, colonial-style home in Richmond, Va., as a pajama lounge. However, they call it their “lazy room.” Says Petersik: “It works for us with tons of cabinetry for storage, window seat, and three chair lounges pushed together. A lot of people like to use updated bean-bag chairs.” Instead of spending evenings there, however, the family gathers in the morning before heading downstairs. Petersik says the timing doesnt change their casual dress code. “Were still in our PJs,” she says. Ceilings have long reflected architectural, economic, and other influences of the day. In early American homes, low ceilings were favored to keep spaces warm, even if they made them feel a bit claustrophobic. During the Victorian era, high ceilings—at least nine feet high and often higher—were embellished, integrating handcrafted cast-plaster ornaments, stencilling, and other decorative treatments.
Soffits are helpful when used to conceal mechanical systems and fill space in rooms where cabinets dont go all the way to the ceiling. But they also often present a choppy look and they can easily date a room, since most homes today use other methods to conceal HVAC and the like. Some homeowners may want to remove them if they serve no functional purpose. “A professional can poke a hole to see,” says Bob Zuber of Morgante Wilson Architects. “It may only be a few thousand dollars to remove them and finish off the top of the cabinets.”
