I have a relatively small kitchen which was made smaller with wall units - I decided to do away with all the wall units. I invested in shelves above the cooker area for pots etc and sourced these wonderful Stainless Steel units from India to take all my crockery - which is all in the same colour way. This works great and I think looks great!

I intend having open shelves but only for items I'll be using quite frequently, I will be having a self build pantry covering a back wall from ceiling to floor, no wall cupboards and no under counter cupboards, I have no intention in having a fitted kitchen, spending what I would on a decent cooker and fridge and slate flooring.
