Open shelving in kitchens has become quite the norm in North America these past few years; perhaps due to the accessibility to European design through magazines and blogs. As I collect more and more images of kitchens for inspiration – I’m almost certain shelving is the route we’ll be taking. Shelving not only can be more affordable, they’re also so easy to change up, just by way of material used and what you put on them. You can totally change the way your kitchen looks in a matter minutes by switching up the dishes you place on them. Redecorate when you can’t renovate!
