Kitchen Design

Here are two examples of kitchens designed with no overhead cabinets. This concept makes the kitchen a focal point and gives it a clean contemporary feel.The picture above has open shelves for "artful" display of dishes.

This is a kitchen I designed with no overhead cabinets. The pantry is to the left in the picture. The slab of granite behind the cooktop is like a beautiful piece of natural artwork.

  2. Well done, Patricia! I really love the look of no overhead cabinets - keeps the kitchen from looking so generic and mass-produced and makes it seem more like a "real" room.

  5. Hi Everybody
    It seems that you all are liking these kitchens with no upper cabinets. I'm glad. Maybe there is a kitchen revolution underway.

  6. I agree, the beautiful piece of granite is like a piece of natural art.

    So, when there are no overhead cabinets, where do people store all of their plates and cups? Is there usually a storage closet off the kitchen? I saw a picture of a kitchen on a real estate posting, and there were very few cabinets; instead, the kitchen had a large alcove to the left of the stove, with plenty of storage.

  8. Hi TTInspire
    When there are no overhead cabinets, usually the dishes are stored in a pantry, or open shelves, or lower drawers.

  13. i am such a fan of no uppers. AND i just clicked on your link for more pictures and got YOUR WEBSITE. holy cow. your work is beautiful of course and it all seems to have a view of your lovely city. i am also a fan of vancouver (and of a restaurant there called canoe, way up in the sky) anyhoo, the room with the brown chairs in the laurel house just yells out for me. i would very much like to sit there. and of course the ingo chandelier...he is my hero. i ramble. my apologies. beautiful work.
