We love the idea of building a dish-drying rack into an upper cabinet. We especially love this design, which provides a seamless stainless steel backsplash and countertop below the cabinet.
Dishes can drip all they want, the water's not going to bother these surfaces. And this cabinet has a high capacity for drying and storage: it's a double-decker. The second shelf is for mugs and glasses and the bottom shelf for plates. Both are slatted to allow for drying.
