Open shelving is everywhere right now, and we love it. Obviously there are pros and cons to this look, but when it’s done right, it can add extra color and personality to any kitchen decor. Open shelves are a great solution for small and large kitchens alike and create an open, airy energy in your kitchen. It’s also a great way to keep track of your items and keep clutter to a minimum.
If your kitchen is not spacious to begin with, you might have noticed that all those cabinets and cupboards only add to the claustrophobia feeling you’re experiencing whenever you’re trying to cook dinner or just place some bread in the toaster. With open kitchen shelving you get rid of those extra inches of wood that turn your kitchen into a man-sized box.
