A great choice for the kitchen is thermally modified wood shelving. Modified wood is going to be able to handle the high moisture and spikes of heat in a kitchen as well as the constant movement of dishware on the shelf surface. Better yet, modified wood is a green option that doesn't require any staining or sealing, so you don't need to worry about chemicals transferring to your dishes.
Light is the second key feature that can be used to make your kitchen appear much bigger. The more light and bright a room is the bigger we perceive it to be. A room full of shadows or dark corners appears smaller as the whole space is not illuminated. The walls or corners can appear shorter than they actually are. By allowing maximum natural light into a room with a big window you can make your kitchen appear far bigger. You ultimately want to do whatever you can to fill your kitchen with light. Any windows that you have should remain uncovered by curtains or blinds. If privacy is still required a net curtain or frosting could be of benefit.
If you're not accustomed to mixing and matching materials, the first step is to look for inspiration elsewhere. By thumbing through kitchen design magazines and books and wandering through model kitchens at home centers and kitchen showrooms, you can train your eye. You can learn to appreciate how combining a wide variety of appealing materials, rather than just a few, can stimulate the senses.
An island is also a logical place to change countertop materials. You could, for example, use laminate counters throughout most of the kitchen and splurge on marble, granite or stainless steel for the island.
