@cherylestes...I love your kitchen! Is this your first kitchen with open shelves, or have you had them previously? I love the eclectic style you have here, and I’m thinking about doing open shelves in my kitchen. Curious about your experience with them...

I had a galley kitchen in my NYC apartment and just a work-in kitchen in my first home. Both were great and had plenty of room for 2 cooks. A big advantage is that the work space is separate from the dining space so guests don't see any pots and pans in the sink. Work-in kitchens and galley kitchens make for wonderful and elegant dining spaces for family meals and holiday celebrations. do not be afraid to buy a home with a galley kitchen. They are wonderful and the standard layout for restaurants and professional chefs.
