Stacking upper cabinets with glass creates visual height and interest while also making use of previously wasted space, as in an open soffit. While we don’t recommend storing everyday dishware up at the ceiling, stacked uppers can be the perfect place for displaying your special occasion stemware or platters. Typically, stacked upper cabinets work well in a kitchen with 9-foot ceilings, as shown in the kitchens we remodeled below.
Interior lighting, as in the first photo, draws the eye upwards, which can benefit a smaller kitchen. The effect, with the undercabinet lighting reflecting off the glossy subway tile, brightens up the room considerably.
The second photo was taken the day we completed the job, so we have yet to see what treasures the homeowners chose to display in their lighted uppers.
Adding storage was important when we remodeled the third kitchen. With 9-foot ceilings and a huge open space, stacking upper cabinets was a logical design decision. Glass inserts in the diagonal corner cabinets provide a visual break from the bright white cabinets and backsplash.
