A Few Other Looks: 1. Elegant wood shelving, seen in a kitchen from The Marion House Book. 2. Open shelving makes this small kitchen from Lonny seem more spacious (the subdued color palette of the dishes definitely helps). 3.

At the far end of the spectrum is this kitchen from House to Home with hardly any upper storage at all. Some people are choosing to take this one step further and go with no upper cabinets at all — a clean look, but one that must involve a lot of squatting down and scrounging around.
