I'm loving upper kitchen cabinets taken all the way to the ceiling.
It appears to be popular!

Whether your ceilings are high or low or if you have a traditional or modern style, it is a great look and gets rid of that dust catcher shelf that people always feel like they have to decorate.

This is a before photo of a kitchen remodel I've recently been working on. 10 ft. ceilings and a typical upper cabinet height. It makes the space look very horizontal and monotonous. Mostly, it brings the ceiling down. The homeowner wanted a new white kitchen, but loves the bit of wall color above the cabinets and needed display space for ceramics.
Here's what I proposed. Cabinets to the 10 ft. ceiling, with color inside and a painted sheetrock hood that would make a more dynamic color statement than a strip above the cabinets. I think it adds height to the room and gives a strong focal point to the kitchen. Can't wait to see the end result!
