I am in love with this idea! Its a beautiful way to display all things kitchen. I am very jealous of anyone who's "everyday" dishes, bowls, etc. are this beautiful. I'm not sure that all my kitchen utensils are display worthy. Maybe that's what the lower cabinets are for? This would be very easy to do as a kitchen remodel and cheaper than conventional cabinets. Not sure if you could get use to it? Try it out in the laundry room first!
I really like the way you feel in this space. Its open and clutter free which is a great feeling in your home!
The shelves are gorgeous, and I love the floors!
