One clear trend in kitchen design is the addition of open shelving. However, the one comment I hear most frequently about is accessorizing. Absolutely the accessorizing of your open kitchen shelving is key. And the accessories can throw off your design. So remember accessories are not the focal point they’re your supporting actors.
So here are a few examples of open kitchen shelving in different design styles to choose from.
First, I have to begin with Martha Stewart’s kitchen at the Maine Estate because I’m such a fan!
As you can see, the open kitchen shelving is beautifully accessorized. With white kitchenware & serving pieces that just pop against this fresh green paint color.
After years of following her, I still find inspiration in her passion for design.
Second, just in case you prefer an all-white Farmhouse Kitchen.
This one is complete with white shiplap, warm wood tones and white open shelving.
Again the accessories range from beautiful glass serving pieces to white kitchenware.
Third, perhaps a more modern aesthetic is your vibe.
In contrast, float open shelving. Like this white shelving accessorized with stainless steel & vintage stoneware vessels. Additionally, the design is further enhanced against this gorgeous deep navy tile.
Also, notice how the white shelving adds to the vertical line design element which naturally leads your eye up throughout the kitchen.
From HGTV Smart Home 2017 a modern mix of finishes creates a show-stopping kitchen.
Together with the black cabinetry, the shelving looks amazing against the copper tile.
Coupled with simple modern accessories the shelving provides a functional space too!
On the other hand, a colorful traditional kitchen painted in Sherwin-Williams Underseas Green with gold accents may be what you are looking for.
Nevertheless, the open shelves contribute to the gold accents found throughout the kitchen. At the same time, artful accessorizing creates a warm feeling within the space.
So from celebrity designs to farmhouse kitchens, colorful, traditional or modern kitchens open shelving is trending!
