Raise your hand if you’ve had this happen: it’s Thanksgiving, the Super Bowl, your annual family reunion, and instead of gathering at your dining room table or around the flat-screen in your living room, everyone’s in the kitchen. For many, this is the heart of the home. But along with the hustle and bustle, is there also clutter and chaos? A little kitchen organization is in order – and open shelving can be the solution for a more spacious feel.
THE BEAUTY – AND PRACTICALITY – OF OPEN SHELVING IN KITCHENS
Kitchen organization can be challenging. These rooms are natural clutter-collectors. Who else has a hundred plastic containers, some with lids, some without? And lids without containers? We tend to wash, throw them into the cabinet, and hope the next time we open the door, they don’t avalanche out. It’s like a closet: too easy to let mess accrue because it can be out of sight, out of mind. Open shelving helps you stay organized: you can’t hide your dirty little tupperware secret! You can also more readily see what you need and don’t need, allowing you to throw out or donate unused items.
