Mood Board- Open Shelving

Saturday, August 1, 2015

This is my first attempt at an Inspiration post or a 'mood board'. You see, I've been thinking dreaming about a kitchen with all open shelving. As surprising as it sounds my kitchen is one of the places I am the most organized (not on purpose I might add... I just have to be in such a small space) so I feel like I could get away with it. My plan scheme is to convert only one of my cabinets to open shelving which I am thinking of adding above our 'coffee' station.

So here goes nothing!

I want to start with this amazing kitchen reno that I found via Instagram after the author, Tanya, liked one of my photos! I just love that this was a simple and economical way to update the space (and I am loving the color scheme).

I absolutely cannot leave out this amazing transformation from one of the best HGTV shows around Fixer-Upper (Shout out to my wonderful M-I-L Debi for turning me on to this show)! I LOVE everything about this open shelving and the kitchen in general; the rustic wood and metal, the white cabinets, black hardware, white subway tile backsplash and marble countertops. And that vent hood? Amazing. Can I just move in?

Since I am looking to convert only one cabinet I love this idea! Very similar to the Fixer Upper kitchen above but only removing one cabinet! I also LOVE the grey lower cabinets. I wish I had the guts to do this in my own kitchen!

One of my favorite kitchen reno's of all time features open shelving in a new, trending way where the cabinet doors are taken off and the shelves are simply exposed. Also, one of my favorite things Beth does is change out the dishes/decor in these cabinets for each holiday!

I have also been toying around with the idea to simply update our existing cabinet doors to glass front doors. I found this awesome DIY tutorial here (I see a trip to home depot in the near future)!

Still trying to figure out exactly how I want to in incorporate open shelving into my kitchen but this is just what has inspired me so far. I always say that if you want to know what my next project is just check out what i'm pinning on Pinterest, haha (follow me here).

    1. Hi Alicia! I know, right?! I wish I could have all of these kitchens!! :) Thank you for visiting!

  2. I know your aptitude on this. I should say we ought to have an online discourse on this. Composing just remarks will close the talk straight away! What's more, will confine the advantages from this data.
