Think openly. Literally. Open shelving not only makes equipment and dishes easily-accessible, but also gives the kitchen a simultaneous sophisticated and quaint feel. If you have a moderate wine collection (and no little children around!) think of displaying your wine as in this example. I recently saw a friend display their wine in the drawers of an vintage wooden card catalog bureau. Think beyond what is built into your kitchen for open shelving. Think Seville chrome shelving. Think an armoire with the doors taken off. Think think. Think.
