Of course, as are most things, open shelving isn’t a necessary option for every homeowner out there. But, people who love buying specialty pieces, or elegant dinnerware, usually want to put them on display; and open shelving makes for a great solution. If you keep it well organized, and you know you’ve bought just the right kind of shelves, then these open shelves can really create an interestingly unique style for your kitchen.
As there have been an increasing lot of people who are replacing their cabinetry with open kitchen shelves, one can see how it is fast becoming one of the hottest amongst all home and kitchen trends. While many people would never imagine giving up their closed door cabinetry, going with open shelves can prove to be extremely beneficial, both aesthetically as well as functionally. First off, it gives an illusion of a wider space, which one would especially want when they have a small kitchen. Then, it’s efficient in an obvious kind of way – you can actually see what has been placed where, and grab it without any difficulty, therefore saving time on opening cabinet door and looking for things.
A major tip for anyone interested in the idea, is to be careful about what they place on their shelves. While we’ve seen how it’s a good thing in functional terms, as you can reach out for reach things easily – it can only be as good aesthetically, if things you put out in the front are look-worthy. The fact that you can see everything means, evey bowl, glass, or utensil you put on your shelves, will have a direct impact on how the overall look and feel of your kitchen.
So, you could choose utensils that are similarly colored, to create a better uniformed look. Also, fruit bowls, mason jars, and wine bottles, can make alluring decorative pieces. Or, a unique decorating tip would be, using your favorite recipe books to adorn the shelves. You can take various elements and try to mix and match them; but, at the same time, do not forget to pay attention to individual styles and colors. Mix and match should not mean cluttering at all; try to create a more harmonious look. Shelves should not be built to hold every single utensil in your kitchen. With regards to that, there should be at least a base wall cabinetry to hold the rest of the items. Not only does it make easier to keep everything well organized, but it also helps modular kitchens in Trivandrum that maintain a sharp look.
