I like the idea of the lighted upper cabinets with glass doors to display serving pieces, but everything I own earns its keep, so any time I had guests, those serving pieces would be in use and those display cabinets empty. Am I missing something? Can that style only look good if you have display pieces that are purely decorative?

I put folded newspaper on top of my cabinets which gets thrown out and replaced several times a year so I do not have to clean there very often. For other high displays on tall cabinets, I bought an extension pole and attach a microfiber duster to clean to avoid the ladder/stool issue. The cabinets that go to the ceiling are great for storing infrequently used items, and do not make the kitchen feel closed in.

Newspaper to toss and replace is a great idea! Thanks for sharing!
