With all of that being said, one of the driving forces that leaves a kitchen feeling dated is the cabinets. New cabinets can cost thousands of dollars, and while if you don’t get carried away it can be completely worth it, here is another approach you can try for far less money.
Open cabinets are a huge trend that have been showing up all over the internet and in design magazines everywhere. The clean, streamlined storage solutions gives off a contemporary vibe that will instantly update your house. However, if you are going to do it, you need to do it right. So here are three pointers to help you get the job done.
1. Keep clutter to a minimum.
When you decide to opt out of cupboard doors, you are exposing your mess to the world. You want to keep the items you display simple and clean, and you can accomplish this in a number of ways. First of all, group like items together. Stack plates and bowls, and anything else that can be easily organized. I would suggest picking a color scheme and sticking with it. One example would be to display all of your white dishes and vases. If you want to add some accents, stick to 2 or 3 colors, or keep everything all within the same color family. The moral of the story is to make everything looks cohesive. Instead of thinking of these shelves as a place to store your dishes, think of it as one large artwork display.
With that, I wish you the best of luck with your kitchen remodeling…and as always, let me know if you have any questions!
