Rethinking Your Kitchen Cabinets

It’s invigorating to see homeowners consider design trends and incorporate them into their homes.  A feature that’s becoming more commonplace within the home is swapping out kitchen cabinets with open style shelving.  If you’ve been hemming and hawing about whether or not to embrace this concept, we’ve got a few reasons why you should try it.

Showcasing Your Dinnerware: One of the most appealing reasons for purchasing your own home is to be in complete control of your surroundings.  Oftentimes with new home ownership means swapping out the hand-me-down dishes from your college days in favor of something a little more sophisticated from a designer whose name you may or may not be able to pronounce.  Open kitchen shelving allows these pieces to be displayed more than just on special occasions.

An Inviting Environment for Guests: It never seems like you’re got enough hands when you’re entertaining a houseful of guests.  Even if they’re just showcasing the most commonly sought after items like wine glasses and coffee mugs, open shelves allow visitors to easily access what they need in your kitchen without having to dig.

Giving the Illusion of More Space: Just as vertical stripes make a person appear taller, open shelving that reaches the ceiling make a room feel more sizable.  Do know that this approach can be counterintuitive if the shelving is cluttered.

Avoiding Sticker Shock: When it comes to remodeling a kitchen, it’s no secret that the biggest expenditure is cabinetry.  Opting for open shelving in your kitchen allows you to breathe new life into the space without harrowing costs.

Adding a Splash of Color: Most of us will admit to opting for neutral colors in our kitchen flooring, countertops and appliances in order to extend their lifespan as long as possible.  Open shelving allows you to introduce splashes of color with the pieces you exhibit because they are more cost effective to swap out than big ticket items.  Exciting colors and patterns can also be introduced by removing your current cabinet’s doors and placing a fabric backing on the back wall of the cabinets.

Forced Organization: Open kitchen shelving puts everything out there…literally.  That means no more stashing away messes.  If you’ve needed the extra prompt to make this happen, open style cabinets & shelving are the way to go!
