This was an old kitchen with soffits all the way around it only allowing for 30 inch cabinets. Also it had a very small island. So after removing everything including soffits. Now we have a custom kitchen with 42 inch cabinets and a massive island. Another thing is that this kitchen goes into the living room and has vaulted ceilings. So what we did was added beams from the kitchen to the living room, which makes a big statement and doesn’t affect the room since the ceiling are so high.
