I really love, when the budget allows, to take upper cabinets all the way to the ceiling, i.e. eliminating the dust shelf. I am working on a fun little kitchen makeover here in Boston. The existing kitchen already has some great elements, like soapstone countertops, that we are preserving. But among other things, the plan is to add some additional millwork, a new backsplash, new hardware, and new appliances. The goal with the additional millwork will be to extend the existing cabinets to the ceiling. At almost ten feet, I think it's going to be a pretty dramatic addition.
