The kitchen is perhaps the room in the house where you have to take care of the balance between the aesthetic and the practical. And this considerably conditions its decoration. Getting that balance is essential for our kitchen to be pleasant to use. Not everything can be trusted in one way or another because we would find a kitchen impossible to use.
Open shelves are one of the options that will help us achieve that balance. But its use is not easy because although they have great advantages to get rid of the large volume of the hung closets we have to have them well ordered and with style. We can not place things in them like in a closet because we do not have the possibility of closing the door and leaving them out of sight.
There are many ways to use open shelves. We can combine them with cabinets as we see here or alone. We also have to take into account the quantity and length of shelves that we are going to install in the kitchen. We will take care not to saturate the walls, we have to find a good compromise between the practical and the aesthetic.
As for the items that we are going to place on the shelves we have to look for a theme, a color, in short, that are objects that fit together. We can not place anything in any way.
But this does not mean that we can only put a tableware for example, that is to say that everything has to be uniform. No, we can also combine objects but always looking for a good aesthetic effect.
We will reserve the shelves for the objects of less use. The kitchenware and everything that we use regularly is best stored in the cupboards. The aim is to ensure that the shelves are occupied most of the time and never remain empty.
They are fashionable and very practical, in short the open shelves are a good option to decorate our kitchen and to have it well organized. We just have to respect a few rules so that their use is not counterproductive and instead of improving the kitchen decoration we destroy it.
