Kitchen Trends: 3 Reasons You Should Consider Open Shelving

Have you considered open shelving for your kitchen? It's as beautiful as it is functional and can add an instant "wow!" factor to your space.



Instant Customization
Open shelves turn your wall space into the perfect place to store unique or oversize bowls and serving trays that wouldn't normally fit inside of a cabinet. It's easy to mix and match different shelf textures, brackets, and colors to create a unique look for your kitchen space.


Feature Meets Function

Open shelves are great for displaying your beautiful collections, but they're also very handy. At a glance, you can easily see all of your kitchen essentials at hand.


The support brackets themselves are one of the most important factors of open shelving. 


"Corbels are a perfect example of how function and beauty are inseparable in my kitchen. The right corbel not only provides structural support but it can also reinforce the style of the whole room. I use them beneath shelves and extended countertops, and also as decorative accents under open cabinetry." -- Martha Stewart

Open shelves outside of the kitchen provide added fuctionality and design for home office and work spaces.
Here, corbels are used decoratively with countertops for an elevated and elegant look.

Incentive to Stay Organized

Because all of your cookware and dinnerware is on display, you'll want to make sure to arrange your belongings in a beautiful way. You'll appreciate the benefit of a tidy kitchen!
