In my last home (in Atlanta, love your articles) I took the doors off one cupboard and found baskets to slide inside, creating four, good looking options for storage and a more custom look. My cabinets were stained, so I just filled the holes with some filler and it looked like it had been designed that way. In this house, I took doors off a laundry room cupboard to open the space for interest. I painted the interiors a bright color, filled the holes where the hinges used to be and it looks great!
