The kitchen is largely considered the most important room in the home. As a focal point for entertaining guests, aesthetics in the kitchen area are important. The latest trend to emerge in this arena…open shelving. Chefs use it for convenience, where the rest of us benefit from the modern display. It is a great way to showcase your tabletop pieces. But beware…it is another surface to dust!
