Previewing the Cabinets - Part 1

I'm working on scanning the preliminary drawings of our cabinets so we'll have something to amuse ourselves while they are being built. :)

This first picture is of a set that will be on the far wall. First let's see the wall where they'll live:

This is the far wall from the rest of the kitchen, on the other side of the kitchen table. It's almost 20 feet long.

The tall sections are 3 feet wide and the short section will be 3 feet high (standard counter height) and 6 feet wide. Altogether it's 12 feet long and will be centered on the wall, so we'll have about 4 feet of "white space" on either side. The short section will have a quartz counter the same as the rest of the kitchen. The whole section will be 14 inches deep. Question of the day is where should we have doors and where should we have drawers and what kinds. We are thinking glass doors for the tall cabinets here but I don't know if we want glass that close to the floor. Also do you think the size of the doors on the tall cabinets look awkward?

Update 3/11/10:
Here are three options I sketched out for the above cabinets:
My favorite is the one on the bottom right. It has glass doors on the top and drawer on each tall side to break up the wall of doors. What do you think?

  1. hum.... if you put glass on them.. they will need to stay more organized inside.. unless you do a forsted glass.. i like the idea of the long drawers in the center for your table cloths and such..
