Carr Stone Kitchen Design Tip: Avoid Open Shelves

Keeping Them Neat

Open shelving in kitchens might look good at first, but there are several reasons why you might want to avoid them. Consider this, open shelves are a huge commitment. Just  remember you cannot just close a door and hide whatever you don’t want to constantly look at. Open shelves so-to-speak force you to tidy up every single time you remove something.  Just ask yourself: How willing are you to put items orderly away that you use every single day. Also,  some kitchen items just don’t look good when displayed openly. Open shelves take away the  storage space you might need for awkward looking or possibly older kitchen utensils. Getting rid of open shelves will definitely give you more storage space in your kitchen. Lastly, if you cram too much stuff into the shelves, your kitchen will look cluttered.

Keeping Them Clean

If you cook a lot, you know how quickly grease can build up in all of your kitchen’s nukes and crannies. That same dirt and grease will collect on the items stored in open shelves. How often will you have the time to wipe down all the items sitting in those shelves?
