Don't have that shelf between the ceiling and the top of the kitchen cabinets.

Unless you like displaying large objects and dusting them.

Don't have an open kitchen.

Unless you don't like being cut off from the rest of the family.

If you opt for an open kitchen then a kitchen island or a half wall, etc can often be constructed to create a visual block for things like dirty dishes.

Cooking creates a mist of oil and water that combines with dust and settles everywhere. It's hard enough keeping up with it in the kitchen, but when that layer settles on rugs/upholstery/electronics/... there can be problems.
