To my eye, small kitchens need as much as possible concealed behind cabinet doors. Improves sense of order and spaciousness. But I know some folks like the coziness of clutter. The only time I think it really matters is when selling, which is a time you probably want to make a small kitchen look larger.

I am always looking for ideas for small kitchens. our vacation home has a small kitchen with 3 cased openings of a single width door. I am not a fan of open shelving or pot racks. i want as much as possible to be behind cabinet doors.
