Trend Alert: 9 Kitchens with Floor-to-Ceiling Cabinetry

February 21, 2018

Noticed in some of our favorite kitchens of late: floor-to-ceiling cabinetry in lieu of wall-mounted, over-the-counter cabinetry (some with library ladders to access the upper reaches). It adds up to a cleaner look with multiple storage opportunities.

In a house in LA’s Los Feliz, designer Tamar Barnoon reconfigured an outdated kitchen, adding a wall of cabinetry that conceals the fridge and other appliances (note the slots for cutting boards); see more at Kitchen of the Week: In Los Feliz, a Moody, Romantic Spanish Modern Update.
