The first photo with the ordinary cupboard looks not quite right... as it's a different colour and style to the rest of the kitchen plus the placement looks like an afterthought.

I live in a large open plan industrial conversion and storage is tough to organise. Built in items really depend on clever design, accurate carpentry and a large budget. I don't have two of those factors so am using freestanding. This also gives the next owner more flexibility. I am really no fan of hard built in benches which really limit your seating options. Not a great use of space IMO.

Use a bookshelf as a wall....or better still, just use a wall? I'm waiting for all of these open plan houses to start getting walls reinstated...
