That is why one of the pieces in my studio has a flat top and the doors on the bottom are glass. I can look through them to see what is stored below. I have very little that is stored behind doors in my sutdio. It is almost all on open shelves and this piece I described.
My pantry in the laundry room is a set of built in shelves that are open front. No doors or curtains hiding anything.
This out of sight out of mind mentality is why I also like curio cabinets. I can see my goodies, keep them from getting dusty as fast and they are kept safe from people who like to handle things but are not careful enough … kids and adults alike!
