Transparent Thinking

Glass inserts on the base cabinets? As this room shows, it's a nifty way to establish a conversation between upper and lower cupboards. One thing that often kills a kitchen for me is the copy-and-paste approach to the cabinetry; while an architectural space can get away with that treatment, such monotony strains a standard room. Another thought: These windowed cabinets hold even greater design potential if their interiors are creatively lit.
