3. Open, airy spaces
“We are seeing a trend toward using open shelving as a practical solution for the kitchen space, rather than simply for display,” observes  Kesha Pillay of Art of Kitchens. “Open shelving personalizes the space, making it feel lived in and warm, while keeping the kitchen functional and easy to use.” – Forbes.com
