The open shelving, for me , is for convenience, not display. Have had them for years and love them, but, as you say, to each their own.

Have a very small galley kitchen. Narrow cabinets do not allow dish storage. Want to put a suspended shelf from a drop down above the peninsula/sink. How and what type of material can I use for shelf suspension? It would be one long shelf to hold dishes and glassware. The one featured above in "Above the Island" is what I would like to do, but only one shelf. What are those anchors that are in the ceiling?

I like open shelving, but not right by the stove; even with a great fan
