{Inspiration Friday} Kitchen Cabinets

open-shelving-3.jpg

I have a little project to work on this weekend so I've been psyching myself up for it by collecting inspirational images. My project involves more wrapping paper (much like my IKEA bookcase project) and a teensy bit of spacial creativity. That's right, friends. I'm going to remove my kitchen cabinet doors. GASP!

Ok, so I'm only removing two, but it's going to require a lot of rearranging. You see, I love my dishes so very very much, but they're as white as my cabinets. White dishes against white cabinets could either be very pretty... Or very boring. So I'm possibly going to see how handy I can be with some brightly colored wrapping paper and my very good friend: Double-Sided Tape.

Here are a few of my favorite open kitchen cabinet images I've collected so far. (For more inspiration check out my Pinterest page!)

Option #1: A little white-on-white action

Option #2: Add a little color to the back of the cabinets

Option #3: Remove the doors from the cabinets on the OTHER side of the kitchen, which are a natural wood color on the inside, so the white dishes are more noticeable (yes, that's right, my cabinets don't match)

Option #4: Throw all my dishes in the dumpster and buy a set of brightly colored dishes! (The Scientist will veto this.)

So, what do you think I should do?
