Open kitchen shelves

Open shelving kitchen storage inspiration #kitchen #storage

Let's chat about kitchen storage for a bit. I love clean cut and decluttered spaces a lot so I have closed kitchen cabinets in my place. Open shelving, on the other hand, can bring a whole new life to your kitchen. Difficult to maintain clean and tidy though, plus you have to be picky on what you put on them as they are always on show. When you do so, however, boy, isn't it a really pretty display to enjoy? I'd love to dare a few shelves in my kitchen someday, as I'll probably be needing extra storage when my family grows.

That also means I'll have to update my mug and bowls collection as well to more fancy ones. I'd also like to display all those herbs and teas I have in all sorts of not-so-pretty-but-practical jars. Keeping them lined up in plain sight makes it easier to pick the right ones for a tasty mix any time needed.

  1. I love open shelving but in moderation. I certainly wouldn't want more than a small wall of open shelves because I agree with you that you have to keep things constantly tidy. (Admittedly I do that anyway because my kitchen has glass front cabinets.) However, with open shelving, it's necessary to dust and clean the shelves just like you would other furniture, and that would get really old, really, really quickly.
