Gorgeous Open Shelving in the Kitchen!

22 Jun

Sometimes the smallest, least invasive things can make the biggest difference…like removing the doors from your kitchen cabinets.  This works for those of us who have the perfect eclectic set of all white dishes, as well as those of us who have just plain “eclectic” pieces (red, yellow, checkered, some from college, some from your wedding registry…). Take a look at these kitchen display successes:

All white and stunningly simple. (image via Country Living)

I love the textures in this image! It's definitely a fancier kitchen space, but if you have the room you may as well flaunt it! (image via NewlywedDiaries)

What a cute idea for a plain wall! (image via blog.nycmattress.com)

Just a few simple shelves placed above the sink work wonders in this space. (image via Beautiful Kitchens UK)

Clean whites and vibrant cookbooks -- gorgeous! (image via theKitchn)

I think the real key to success is controlling the mess: if you have to store your blender and mismatched pot lids in the open shelving, then perhaps it’s best to keep the open portions limited to just dishes. No one says you have to remove all of your doors, and knowing when to edit is one of the keys to successful design. 

Do you have any open shelving? Are you brave enough to try it?

    It would be very exciting when I have this kind of kitchen. I love cooking and soon after my wedding it would be better to prepare my kids some of their favorite food.
