Makeover on a Budget: Kitchen Plans

Hotel Du Nord via
Last week I saw a post on Desire to Inspire on open shelving for the kitchen. We had them in our last kitchen (which was galley style); and now I'm thinking about them for our new kitchen for two reasons. It's a lot cheaper to do and because I love the look, don't you? It's a modern take on the cosy cabin kitchen, and like a professional kitchen, so efficient (no cupboard doors to open and shut). The only negative of course is dust, and keeping it looking somewhat organized. Here's a few that have caught my eye (including a couple mentioned at Kim's post). Also a big congrats to Kim's very own and awesome kitchen being featured in the October issue of Style at Home. You can also visit it here.

I love a combination - I house cookbooks, large colorful serving dishes and some of my antiques on the open shelving - I house the stuff that I don't want people to see (food, ugly containers, etc) in the cabinets. I also converted a few of the cabinets to have glass doors to keep the nicer dishes in - it also really opens things up a bit.

I like open shelving to be organized and hold really beautiful things, but I don't like to see too much clutter on them because it can really look like a mess.

If it is done right - it can be absolutely beautiful.
