Now you have decided to remodel your kitchen or at least make some minor changes, we have some kitchen remodeling ideas for you. Even small makeovers may change the look of your kitchen immensely.
Let’s clear out one thing right at the beginning: whether you live with a family or by yourself, the kitchen is the busiest space in a house. From the coffee you whip up to get out of bed every morning to the last glass of water you sip every night, the kitchen remains at the center of your home. It is perfectly understandable as to why kitchen design needs a breath of fresh air, or simply, a coat of fresh paint.
One refreshingly easy way to bring your home’s kitchen into the present-day, design-wise, is to try open shelving!
Gone are the days when the sight of your cutlery in the open would invite a frown from the visiting guests — in fact, more and more people are opening up to the idea of open shelving. If you are looking to contrast your new kitchen from the old one (or your grandma’s) and add a sense of ‘largeness’ to your space, you should definitely try open shelving. This is especially dramatic in smaller spaces, where the heavy visual lines of closed cabinetry can make a space feel blocked off.
The best part about it is that there are so many ways to play around with it and be creative. You could go for white open shelving to highlight the wallpaper or the paint in or you could even mix and match it with the cabinetry. No need to get rid of cabinetry entirely — just add shelves between windows or in the corners of the kitchen to display your most prized cookbooks, pottery or teacups. Customize it with hooks to hang stuff or opt for fancy boxes and baskets to add a touch of sophistication. Under cabinet lights are highly recommended for kitchens looking to add a bit of wow factor. We suggest opting for only one color of glassware to display on these open shelves for the best effect. There are a lot of kitchen open shelves ideas that can overhaul the look of your kitchen as well as add astonishing functionality.
