By using just 3 tall cabinets (2’ deep 7’ tall) at the rear of the kitchen, and the open floor plan, this allows all the rest of the kitchen to have 36” tall base cabinets and countertops, without overhead cabinets. Eliminating overhead cabinets (and the associated wall) just gives you an incredible open feeling. The kitchen isn’t as nearly as cramped. The windows and natural light come from the windows of the other rooms and skylights, meaning you don’t have to waste valuable kitchen wall space for windows. Place your sink and cooktop to face the open rooms.
With the contemporary trend toward making the kitchen part of the family living area, modifications are often necessary in the traditional layout of the kitchen. The basic shapes – one-wall, L-shaped, U- shaped, two-wall – still remain. However, the walls in many contemporary kitchens aren’t there. The rear of the kitchen cabinets forms the front of storage units in the adjoining room. Without the floor-to-ceiling walls in the kitchen, where can the cabinets be hung? The basic problem in most kitchens is inadequate cabinet space. What can be done? If floor space is available, additional base cabinets can be included to compensate for the loss of wall cabinets. On the other hand, these cabinets can be hung from the ceiling and a space between the bottom of the cabinets and the top of the base cabinets can be left open, and used as a work area. Another technique is to open only part of the wall for the ”open look.”
