The kitchen in the third photo is lovely, but I'd have hidden the storage jars at least behind glass doors. Otherwise they are dust and grease traps. But I know views differ on that matter. And yes, hide the TV if you have one (we don't!).

Deb, agree the Ikea themed kitchen looks great - no reason for open shelving being a grease or dust trap if your food prep area is kept clean. Plenty of TV shows out there that give hints & tips on how to do this...

Markfedwards29, as I said, we don't have a TV and live in France, so I'd have to look for hints & tips sites like this! I keep my food preparation area pretty clean, but that doesn't prevent having to apply vinegar and bicarbonate to the bit of open shelving and its contents more often than I'd like and less often than the shelving behind glass cupboards!
