Currently trending: the kitchen #shelfie
Kitchens today seem to be less constricted and more styled, thanks in large part to easy (and cost-effective) open shelving. But with dining essentials on display instead of hidden behind cabinet doors, a little styling is required. With the help of a #shelfie (Get it? A shelf selfie?) from a few of our favourite kitchen tours, we're sharing inspiration for designing and styling a chic and organized space with unconfined storage.
Open shelving keeps everything looking spacious and airy in this modern kitchen. Not only are many items easily accessible while cooking, but the shelving provides the opportunity to display pretty items like pitchers, cutting boards and serving plates.
Open shelving on one wall adds interest to the room, while allowing you to display a few choice pieces. As with this room, the larger, less-used items are always placed on the top shelf.
A small breakfast nook is a great place to add open shelving. Placed above the coffee maker, it makes an ideal spot to display your coffee cup collection for an eclectic café feel.
