Cabinets, dressers, cupboards…to door or not to door

Today I wanted to focus on our living room dresser – more specifically; whether or not to add doors.
IMG_2903I love the wrap around dresser we designed for our wall leading into the kitchen, but styling-wise it’s been bugging me a lot. If you have a huge home, and plenty of space to dedicate to shelf stylings; great! But with our growing family, and space being of a premium, I’m thinking of asking Ross if he can build doors for this unit too. {I try to limit the number of home projects I ask him to do; he’s a crazy busy guy, so I need to prioritise carefully}.

The thing is, I realise more and more I’m filling the top half with boxes & bowls of ‘things’ & books. So perhaps if we had doors, we could just screen the whole lot and create a much quieter looking space {it helps when the rest of the room is an array of strewn books & toys!}

I’m so grateful for the upper cupboard doors on our living room alcove dressers; they hide a multitude of DVD’s, family consoles and office supplies.

So, what do you think? Should we add doors, or not?
