I have a similar situation and have also been told by my architect, designer and GC that putting the cabinets in front of my long windows would be a bad idea. I can't seem to find any pictures of the "back" of the counter/cabinet. Do you happen to know if there are any? Also do things fall down between the cabinet and window? Just trying to wrap my head around this enough to go against everyone else so any advice is much appreciated.

Agree with designer. This look is not attractive.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Kitchens - Not Just for Cooking Anymore
This house used to be a little warren of tiny rooms, but these architects blew out all the walls and made it one big space.
Let wood shine by creating white backdrops. The hardwood floors, farmhouse table and wooden chairs take center stage while white cabinets, walls and objects create a serene and updated background. This kitchen has replaced fussy cafe curtains and upper cabinets with unadorned windows and open shelving.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Storage With Style
Out of cabinetry but not out of dishes? Don’t let a wall of windows stop you from utilizing storage. Display your dishware by installing shelving across the windows; the natural light on the pieces will create a showcase.
Shawn Gauthier added this to 12 Ways to Have a Nicer Kitchen This Year
Get rid of your cabinets. If your kitchen feels restrictive and your cabinets are getting in the way of natural light, removing them may be a good option. Replace them with shelving for storing your dishware. Your space will open up and your beautiful dishes will be the center of attention.
... can be used by ganging a series of traditional double-hung windows together. Ganging windows in rows like this allows for a room to capture the light and the view while still providing an ample amount of wall space for other needs.
Laura Gaskill added this to 6 Ways to Rethink the Kitchen Island
Encourage cozy suppers with a kitchen table. With an ample-size rustic wood table in the center of your kitchen, family and friends are sure to gather around it night and day. It's so much warmer and friendlier than a big, blocky kitchen island, and it's perfect for spreading school projects out on as well.
Toronto Interior Design Group | Yanic Simard added this to How to Ditch the Drapes and Let Your Windows Shine
Shelves. As the trend of open upper shelves continues to grow, people are looking for new ways to apply them. One of my favorite ways is stretching shelves across windows.

Shelves. As the trend of open upper shelves continues to grow, people are looking for new ways to apply them. One of my favorite ways is stretching shelves across windows. would want translucent film over windows cause how else can you ever close them? In my case, could put shelves inside the window cutout.
