If you're considering adding open kitchen cabinets to your kitchen design, you'll first need to choose a material. Open kitchen cabinets aren't restricted to any particular kitchen design, but they are generally found more often in kitchens that incorporate some semblance of casual style. They put forth a less restrictive design approach, and they also allow for the display of dishware and decorative items.

If storage space is at a minimum, open kitchen cabinets can be a great option. Doors will never get in the way, and you'll always have full access to all the contents of your cabinets. Additionally, guests won't ever need the "what goes where" tour, as a quick glance will give them all the info they'll need.
