6 Open Shelving Trends for the Kitchen
I am a huge fan of open shelving in the kitchen. They can be a very functional way to have the items you use frequently right at your fingertips and they can also be a great design feature when styled with beautiful dishes and serving pieces. Take a look at these inspiring examples of open shelving….
Natural & Reclaimed Wood
Natural wood shelving adds an organic warmth and color to your kitchen. They can look beautiful both stained or natural, or try using reclaimed lumber for a more rustic look.

Metal-framed shelves add an industrial vibe to your kitchen. Keep the frames thin so that you don’t distract from the airy feeling open-shelving brings to your kitchen.
BELOW: I LOVE this kitchen!
Glass is a unique minimalist option for your shelves. Glass allows the emphasis to be on the hardware.
ABOVE: Notice how these shelves are floating glass! STUNNING!
Under the Range Hood
A shelf or two above your stove seems very practical to me. It would be so handy to have all of your ‘go to’ spices and oils right in front of you while cooking.
Painted open shelving allows the shelves to blend into the design instead of becoming a focal point.
Removing the Cupboard Doors
I love this idea! It’s cost efficient, updates your kitchen and is super easy to do. You can wallpaper, paint or even add beadboard paneling to the interior of the cupboard to give it a polished and personalized look.
