22 Kitchens That Will Persuade You To Embrace Open Shelving
The idea of exposing your clutter to the world is downright terrifying. Yes, chaos exists, but it feels way less real when it’s concealed behind closed cabinet doors. If you’ve been resisting an open shelving kitchen, we understand. But hear us out: Open shelving can be a good idea and look extremely inviting when it’s done right. That doesn’t mean you have to maintain perfectly stacked dishes on floating shelves. You can have a maximalist display that’s full of personality thanks to imperfect piles of tableware mixed with art and decor. If you’re looking to make your kitchen feel more cohesive, you can match painted open shelves to lower cabinetry or use them to draw focus to another standout feature in your space. Or you can incorporate a single row of open shelving dedicated to your favorite mugs or a collection of spices among your cabinets to start small. When they’re the ideal height at eye level, open shelving can make living in your kitchen so much more comfortable.
