Creative Cabinetry

Add a splash of style to your kitchen by making decorative use of those hard to reach cabinets.

Take the doors and hinges off of a hard to reach cabinet (such as the one above the refrigerator), touch it up and fill it with a collection of decorative pottery or antique kitchen tools. Removing the shelf will allow you to accommodate larger pieces and provide for a less cluttered look.

Consider painting the inside of the cabinet in the same color as your walls, or one that coordinates with your wallpaper. You may even want to wallpaper it.

For added interest, decorate it seasonally. Trust your instincts, be true to your style, and most of all have fun!
