Hmm, strange. This kitchen has everything I like in it but I don't really like it much at all. I'm not sure why because all the disparate (and awesome!) elements are pulled together very well. We have the slatted ceiling, wood floors, black and white colour scheme, white subway tile - even the pulls and an orchid. Interesting. Anyways, moving the uppers all the way to the ceiling and then installing shelves underneath, though, is a fantastic idea.
