DS Tip of the Week: Simple Soffits!

When it comes to design, we often want to to be creative, and… we get a little carried away.  Sometimes it’s best to keep it simple.

Get out the notepad and jot down these pointers.  That’s right… it’s time for another Decorating Solutions Tip of the Week!  This week’s tip comes from Interior Designer Dawn Adamec.  Dawn works at our Waukesha store, and helps customers in the area create the homes of their dreams.  She has some suggestions when working with kitchen soffits.  Soffits are installed just above kitchen cabinets, and bridge the gap between the cabinets and the ceiling above.

Dawn explains, “The key to attractive-looking soffits above kitchen cabinets is repetition.  A lot of times people struggle with this one.  Instead of using similar items on top of cabinets, they just put any items up there, and they don’t match!  It looks haphazard and not put together.  Repetition makes it more cohesive and clean.  Also, mix up the textures–like a mix of greenery, metal, or glass decor.”
