Question: That Weird Space Above the Kitchen Cabinet


To put stuff in that space above your kitchen wall cabinets or to leave them empty. That is a question that plagues many a homeowner and apartment dweller, isn’t it? On the one hand, it’s a prime spot for displaying pots, knick-knacks or plants, but on the other hand, who can even reach it? We’re divided on the topic. We’ve seen great looking displays, but also encountered horribly dusty and cluttered nightmares. We leave the question to you, our readers…

Do you fill it with plants? Display your favorite pottery? Use it as storage for your extra pots and pans? Create a diorama of your Star Wars figurines? You tell us. What do you have in that space above your kitchen cabinets now? Is it working for you? Or are you one of the lucky ones who has cabinets that go up to the ceiling? Tell us about your own above the kitchen cabinet solutions or issues to help others who may be struggling!
