Have you run out of spots to put your extra rolls of paper towels?
Don’t want to hide your vintage kitchen scale in a cabin
Keep the space above the cabinets simple and practical. You can display a few decorative pieces with surplus kitchen supplies, baking trays, & cake stands.
Remember to aim for one color palate to make a more sophisticated look.
You could use the space above your kitchen cabinets to provide extra storage. If you’re starting from scratch, build your cabinets to the ceiling for extra storage and no empty space!
Or make open shelving across the kitchen cupboards and add dividers and baskets to the space above your cupboards. Try to use matching baskets and vertical dividers to give the space an organized and clean appearance. The baskets will keep extra kitchen supplies or small items out of sight and give the kitchen an organized look. You could even add cupboards around the room and over the sink to really create a lot of storage.

Create a Visual Impact for High Ceilings
Sometimes you don’t have the space or the items to showcase above your cabinets. Consequently, you could decorate the walls above the kitchen cabinets using some permanent or removable wallpaper. Other ideas include brick (brick wallpaper as a great alternative), paint or even tiles that coordinate with your kitchen backsplash.
Another finishing touch includes greenery. Use vases or pitches and add some faux greenery to really bring some color to the space. Further, use a few of the same style plants and pots to give the kitchen some great finishing touches.
