Help Me Choose Between Shelves and Drawers for My New Cabinets

Good Questions

Q: I'm getting ready to redo my kitchen with new cabinets and have designed the whole thing, for the most part, using the IKEA kitchen planner. The one thing holding me up is that I can't decide between drawers, or cabinets with pull out shelves for my base cabinets! Do people prefer one over the other functionally?

I fear piling tons of stuff in drawers so I don't see what's underneath — making me lean towards cabinets with pull out shelves. However I am curious if there are total pros to the drawers? Thank you!
