Would you enclose this spot with matching pieces or leave it?

This is my laundry room update plan. This is a cabin and ALL the walls are knotty pine. Painting is not really an option as the previous owners put some sort of finish on the walls and it would be cost prohibitive to remove(according to multiple quotes).

Anyway, I’m planning on a layout where I can add as much storage as possible as this house is seriously lacking storage. I’m trying to decide if I should buy a few pieces of the matching cabinet cover pieces and finish out the spot above the wall cabinets or just leave it. Here it is without the finish pieces,

And here it is with the space lined with the finish pieces.

Or I could do top and side and not do the back?
