The open shelves can be used to stores plates and saucers while cutting utensils or big pots can be stocked in closed shelves. Most kitchens already come with a dishwasher installed however if that isn't the case, you can easily have one installed inside. This will enable you to store dishes inside them aside from the shelves.
If you have plenty of kitchen area in the middle, you can install an L‐shaped island with countertops matching the rest of the kitchen. Not only will this add style to your kitchen, but it will also enable the island to be used as a spare dining table.
