no upper cabs-- open shelving instead?
I just returned from Expo where I checked out the cabinetry. Totally underwhelmed. the idea that I'm going to spend thousands of dollars on cabinetry that could be spent on AGA or blue star range and induction cooktops, adding windows, and the best soapstone is killing me. I'm suddenly considering reusing the white melamine bottom cabs and replacing my uppers with open shelving. I can imagine white shelving with cream paint background-- I imagine I would save enough money to purchase a cream AGA instead of a basic range I would afford otherwise. I live in a 1920 townhouse on Capitol Hill (DC) and I think the idea works for the time and place.
any pictures that will help me convince my GC and kitchen designer? I'm sure they think I'm nuts. Am I? please tell me if I am-- I'd love criticism of this possibly hare brained idea!
