We’re still making some kitchen decisions here at the Brown house. We’ve got the big picture and majority of the details planned out but we’re still contemplating a few touches here and there. For instance… next the the refrigerator (see the kitchen floor plan here), we want to do some sort of display shelving… either open shelving or glass front cabinets.
In order to help visualize both options in our kitchen, I drew a kind-of-almost-to-scale rendering of both options. First up, here’s the glass front door option:
…and our second option, open shelving with a wall of subway tile as the backdrop:
On “paper”, we’re loving the idea of glass front cabinets. But then there’s the wall of subway tile with the open shelving. Yes, subway tile makes me weak at the knees and Greg thinks it’s “really cool”. Therefore, even with the renderings, we’re still torn between the two. So we decided to round up some cabinet eye candy to hopefully push us in the right direction…
The eye candy didn’t help the decision making process much because we love them all! On one hand, open shelving has a more modern look and in some way, it adds a little more personality to a kitchen. On the other hand, glass cabinet fronts are slightly more practical and keeps the dust out. Which do you prefer… open shelving or glass front cabinets?
