Here's a few pics:
This is a little kitchen, but has big impact and it looks more like a cabinet unit with the doors removed rather than stand alone shelves.
The tile is insane gorgeous and the shelves are styled beautifully.
This is like a happy medium. The closed cabinetry on the bottom and top cabinets all the way to the ceiling allowing for one shelve running below. It maximizes space to the ceiling while allow for more covered storage.
I mean, you know your fancy when your glassware matches the beautiful tile back splash.
