Open Shelving Ideas for the Kitchen

No doubt about it, I’m a huge fan of open shelving in the kitchen.  I find I actually keep my open shelves more tidy than my closed cabinets, which is a good thing!

I’m kind of crushing on this color green that covers the floor-to-ceiling open shelving unit!

I’m also a huge fan of wood with white paint … and this open shelving unit is unique and pretty.

How about open shelving for the lower level? I couldn’t do this in my house. The kitties would have a field day with the stuff and would keep knocking it off the shelf so they could sit in there. Sometimes the cats are worse than kids!
