Do away with that boxy feeling in your kitchen by using open storage instead of close cupboards. Also, if it is applicable, you can do away with an island. Consider the usage of the area. If you think that you can already work well without an island, then be it. Make your kitchen as open as possible with only the necessary things in it.
