Keep the wood and finishes away from any contact with water. If it is coming in contact then try and find a water resistant finish.
You need to use your limited space space wisely. People tend to accumulate things they haven't used in a while, so try to clean your cabinets from time to time from things you don't really need. Get rid of them by selling them or giving them away to the needy. This way you won't have cabinets that look clustered, busy and messy.
Cabinetry should not be limited to simply storing items and shouldn't also limit your creativity as a homeowner. For a more classy and sophisticated look you may also consider glass cabinetry to showcase your expensive china, glassware collection and other decorative items. There seem to be a lot of choices and alternative choices, but it's easier and much simple than you think. More than the style and the aesthetic appeal look into the very purpose of your kitchen cabinets design.
