Use the light
Do you have a sunny and bright kitchen? Having windows that let the sunshine in makes your kitchen look bigger and gives it a homey feel. Take advantage of the sunshine by adding unique features to the windows. To bring the elegance in, select a dark color for your cabinet doors. Charcoal gray is a good choice. Have framed shelves that are painted the same color. This is your open cabinet. It is perfect for stacking plates, dishes, or cookware. Add vertical slots to hold lids. Place cup hooks under the cabinet if it is high enough. The hooks should match the finish on your cabinet door knobs.

What do these cabinets have in common?
There are some factors built into each of these (and more) styles. The cabinets are space efficient. They have lazy susans, pull out vertical storage, and small racks on the doors to store spices, utensils or whatever you need. The drawers have diagonal and removable wooden planks for some organization.
When you use a professional cabinet builder, he customizes the cabinets to fit your needs. Perhaps you like the look of glass doors, but don’t like the effort it takes to keep the contents tidy. You can get glass doors with a pattern, a wire mesh, or even frosted glass. He will find out what you are looking for and the space he is allowed. Then he can show you ways to get what you want, at a reasonable price. You cannot get this kind of service or the professional grade installation from big box home improvement stores.
