3. Top-hung shelvesThese shelves hang from the ceiling or wall, using brackets made from metal, wood or other suitable materials. Here, the shelving unit, mounted on steel brackets, holds dishes and doubles as a partition in the open-plan living space.

Choosing what’s right for youThere’s no set formula that can tell you which kitchen layout will work better in your home. Part of having a conversation with a designer is trying to figure out what’s best for you. Start with a list of needs and wants, and go from there. “You’ve got to consider the way you live in your home and the way you use your home,” says Carrino. “How do you use your kitchen? How do you foresee using your new kitchen?” Everyone’s needs are different, so don’t let yourself sway with trends. “A family with kids that need supervision might decide to do an open-concept plan with a large multifunctional island,” says Dixon. “But a couple who loves to entertain might opt for a closed-concept space so they can prep courses ahead of time and not spoil the surprise. It totally depends on your lifestyle.” Read more: Houzz Quiz: What Style of Kitchen Should You Have?Tell us: Do you have a closed or open kitchen?

This kitchen features open shelves that overarch the kitchen counter, working as a subtle display unit for glassware and crockery. The shelves also function as a screen between the kitchen and the living room, forming a partial wall. Shelf partitions are sensible options if you prefer privacy in your cooking area but still want the extra space that comes with an open kitchen.

4. Use them as a partitionOpen shelves are a great way to demarcate spaces without blocking off an open floor plan. As shown in the image, a floating design is used to partition the kitchen from the rest of the living area. Here, the shelves are mounted on steel brackets to support dishes. The unit also makes your kitchenware accessible from either side.

Hidden storage for things under whiteboard. Not yellow wood though. Open underneath for shoes.
