Shelves... or Cabinets? That is the question.

I'm sure all of us at one time or another (especially if you're really bored at work) envision building our own "dream" home...
... and what it would look like.
So, here's a question for ya when it comes to kitchens:
Cabinets - or open shelves?
Today, we're going to focus on OPEN SHELVES...
... tomorrow, CABINETS.
Check these out from Remodelista.

To be honest, I'm not sure I could keep all my kitchen utensils and gadgets looking clean ALL the time. I mean, I'm a neat freak - but every neat freak does have his/her moments.
However, the clean lines and simplicity - do have me won over quite a bit.

This one is so fresh and clean. Crisp.

These next few are from Apartment Therapy... which, lately - has become my therapy.
I love how the open shelves can add a pop of red, yellow, green, blue, etc. to the kitchen.


  1. Love the look, but NO way! I gotta have my cabinets. Love, the blog!

  2. Servingware should be grouped together, as well as any special occasion dishes you may have. The special occasion dishes are good candidates for those hard to reach cabinets. Food Display Cabinets
