Whether you’re in need of additional storage space or you want to create an ornamental feature to refresh your current kitchen design, adding shelving is a great option to consider.
Open shelving is your opportunity to make a real statement in your kitchen without having to sacrifice the practicality of your space, which is why it’s becoming an ever-popular design alternative to closed cabinet shelving. It’s a great option for those looking to restore their kitchen space but aren’t yet ready for a full redesign.
Read on for some ideas on how you can use kitchen shelves to revamp your space.
Attract Interest with a Decorative Display
Whilst shelving can seem like a purely functional feature in a kitchen, there’s nothing to say you can’t use your shelving to create an area of interest for your space
Consider styling the shelves with artwork, collector’s items or colourful props for an impactful look. You could even choose to add lighting to enhance your featured objects further.
Keep it Light with Glass Shelving
Smaller kitchens with low lighting can sometimes be made to feel even smaller with heavy wooden shelves, especially in darker colours. Instead, try glass shelving for a functional yet modern look that won’t sacrifice the light airy look of your space.
Add a Pop of Colour
Give your kitchen décor a new lease of life with a set of brightly coloured shelves. This look is particularly well suited to open plan kitchens, where the shelves can serve as a main feature point.
Try to think beyond this year’s current trending colours and opt for a bold colour that complements the rest of your kitchen’s overall scheme and won’t look outdated in a year or two.
Go Rustic with Reclaimed Wood
In traditional, country-style kitchens, sleek, modern shelving can cause a clash. Instead, opt for reclaimed wood shelving to add an extra level of character to the space.
The beauty of reclaimed wood shelving is that every piece of wood is slightly different, injecting personality into any space.
