Cultivate your cooking space. We loved this kitchen with its soft, buttery yellow painted cabinets, retro inspired pendant lights, stunning farmhouse sink and shelves full of pretty cakes stands, bowls and platters. Need more room in your kitchen? Consider open shelving. Today’s kitchen designs are full of open shelves to stack and store. Shelving allows you to use walls that may not be right for a cabinet and keeps the space feeling airy.
