Awful! I would have had a kanipchin fit if someone did that to my kitchen. First of all, cabinet space is very important. It keeps everything tucked away, organized, out of sight & provides a clean look. I can understand painting the cabinets a different color, but doing away with cabinets all together is an absolute NO! Speaking of paint, I love purple but this shade of purple is horrible for a kitchen. It may work on an accent wall in the dining area but definitely not on all the cabinets in the kitchen. Or this color would look cute in a girls bedroom. I cannot bluebe the cabinets were ripped out so "people would be sure to notice all the purple cabinets below. " Seriously? How could anyone miss purple kitchen cabinets, period? This remodel is 2 thumbs down for me. I would be crying if someone did that to my kitchen. 😟👎👎


Never get rid of cabinet space, especially for open shelves which can hold only a few decorative items or look messy. And that color is awful

I can only imagine how much grease builds up on those exposed shelves and all over the plates and bowls. Cabinets are used for a reason.
