Exposing your clutter to the world is downright terrifying. Yes, the chaos exists, but it feels way less real when it’s concealed behind closed cabinet doors. If you’ve been resisting open shelving, we deff feel you, but hear us out. It can look insanely chic and totally contained if done right. Don’t make any judgments yet — just let these kitchens inspire you. Baby steps.
Minimalist Is More – Tons of plates and cups stacked on shelves = not cute. Force yourself to pair down and your kitchen will look way more chic.
Half & Half – If the exposed feel of open shelving freaks you out, limit yourself to one section of your wall. You can keep the rest of your crap in your lower cabinets, so you aren’t doing away with concealed storage for good, but you can experiment a little with going open.
A Little Functional, A Little Fun – Obvi you need to use shelves to stack your kitchen essentials like bowls and cups, but you can also mix in some fun decor pieces, like books and vases.
