2019’s Most Beautiful Kitchen Ceiling Soffit Designs

2019’s Most Beautiful Kitchen Ceiling Soffit Designs

“Soffits are boxy. Soffits are meant to be functional, not fashionable.” We’ve heard it all before. And none of it is true.

The truth is, kitchen ceiling soffits can be the crown on your kitchen design masterpiece! In the past, soffits were strictly created to hide wiring and cover the underside of surfaces, without much thought to ‘curb appeal’ or aesthetic value. Today’s smartest designers (like Peter Salerno Inc.) understand that every square inch of design space is an opportunity to add on to a masterpiece.

“When our clients say go bigger,” Peter Salerno recently remarked on Instagram, “we go sky high!”

Making your kitchen soffits dazzle takes a bit of ingenuity, vision and daring. But when executed properly, soffits can go from simple to showpieces and elevate the luxury of your kitchen.

Let’s take a look at some of our favorite kitchen ceiling soffits of 2019 and talk about why we love them!

Awesome Kitchen Soffit Ideas + Designs

1. Swarovski Crystal, Reclaimed Tin + Statement Lighting

“The cherry on top of an amazing kitchen” is how Peter Salerno describes this soffit. This hexagonal soffit is framed with white and glitters with thousands of Swarovski crystals. Recessed lighting inside the ceiling feature and twin crystal chandeliers create a dazzling sparkle, turning this kitchen soffit into the centerpiece of the design.

2. Dark Wood Border + Large Pendant Lighting

One of Peter Salerno Inc.’s favorite locations for a statement kitchen soffit is over the kitchen island. The intricate craftsmanship on the dark-stained wood border is a visual tie-in to the custom range hood on the far wall. Once again, recessed lighting accents the tin ceiling panels in the soffit. The piece is finished off with large, bold pendant lighting that illuminates the entire kitchen design.

3. Sleek + Simple Brushed Tin Ceiling Soffit

Evocative of classic “drop tin ceilings”, this simple and elegant soffit features a square of 9 brushed tin ‘panels’, bordered by a beautiful scalloped design. Clean white wood borders the feature, with two understated lighting pieces hanging like bubbles underneath the tin.

Reclaimed Tin + Swarovski Crystal Used in Beautiful Kitchen Design

Reclaimed Tin + Swarovski = Beautiful Kitchen Design

This beautiful kitchen in Colts Neck, New Jersey, received an amazing interior design makeover from Peter Salerno Inc. The makeover was due in large part to two items that at first glimpse have nothing to do with one another: reclaimed tin, and gorgeous Swarovski crystal.

But when these two design elements are combined in the hands of a master designer and craftsman like Peter Salerno, the results are extraordinary. Peter Salerno refinished the reclaimed tin and embedded it with the beautiful Swarovski crystals, and here are the results:

As you can see, the Swarovski-encrusted reclaimed tin is lit on the ceiling above a handcrafted kitchen island, creating a dazzling effect that the homeowners love. The kitchen was also fitted with new tile, custom cabinetry, and state-of-the-art oven and range. The reclaimed tin was also molded into a gorgeous custom tin range hood.
