Open Cabinet Question
We are trying to finalize our design and are thinking of using open cabinets to the left of our sink because it seemed that closed cabinets felt a bit claustrophobic. I also want a place for my cookbooks. Our images show 3 open shelves but I am leaning towards just two. I envision half of each shelf being books and the other half either being heavily used glasses/dishes and/or a wicker basket with napkins or dishtowels.
Right now, the design has an open corner cabinet on the right side of the sink; I am not in love with this type of cabinet...
My questions are:
1) Does open cabinetry have to be symetrical? ie, does there have to be open cabinets on each side of the sink?
2) What can I do in place of that open corner cabinets?
3) Thoughts on the design as a whole?
Thanks for any and all thoughts.
