Diy kitchen open shelving ideas
Kaitie Moyer’s kitchen is proof that open shelving doesn’t require a full renovation—just simply take the door off your cabinet.
The Acrobat Act
Even windows don’t own to get in the way of your open shelving dreams.
Here, Katie Hackworth installed transparent shelves from the ceiling for an unexpected take on the storage solution.
The Museum Display
Open shelves aren’t just for dinnerware. If you own the space, take the doors off multiple upper cabinets, love Emily Henderson Design.
Then intersperse your plates and cups with beautiful vases, baskets, and those vintage casserole pots you scored at that garage sale.
The Double Feature
In her kitchen, Katie Spiers shows that shelves don’t own to be totally utilitarian.
A few plants placed in between dishes instantly brightens up the space (and that cool herringbone backsplash doesn’t hurt either).
The Cool Corner
When you narrow below your dinnerware and drinkware to just the essentials—the things you actually use—a simple corner ledge can home them easily.
The Joshua Tree House’s terracotta tableware makes the nook extra-cozy.
The Dining Room Hero
Let’s be honest: China cabinets can be bulky and hard to style when you own more stuff than space. That’s why we love Katherine Carter’s alternative—built-in shelves that make a massive collection of teacups and vintage glasses glance artfully curated.
The Wood Wonder
You don’t own to give up your cabinets to get in on this trend.
A little stack of shelves in this kitchen by Bespoke Only balances out the heavier wood cupboards.
