The next shelf is all about meal prep. Here I keep baking items and any boxed dinner items like rice, pasta or noodles. Again, this is very convenient because I can get everything I need all at once. These flat baskets are a really useful storage item. If you cannot find these or something similar, a baking tray, plate or even a serving tray will do the job. Having something that slides out of the shelves is especially helpful when you’re looking for specific items. Knocking over glass jars is never a good thing, and these flat baskets eliminate that risk. I got really creative with the top shelf by putting items in glass containers with labels, as well as by using canisters I already had. The canisters and the spice rack were sitting on my countertop, taking up valuable work space. Because I organized and stored things so efficiently, I was able to move these into the pantry. Now I have more counter space to work on meals!
Use as much open storage as possible in your design. Even if your cabinets have window glass, you`ll get to peek at all the pieces you‘ve chosen inside – which hopefully – coincide with the style genre. Stripes are another help in creating interest and personality inside your retro kitchen. Pay attention to the linens when adding your stripes, as it‘s a great way to mix and match. When you think retro, do you think about 1950‘s fun diners? Because we certainly do and we wouldn't blame you at all for turning your kitchen into a bout of diner festivity! The most popular color choice when transforming your kitchen into a retro solace is turquoise. It`s clean, it‘s fun, it‘s joyful and it goes so well with the vintage essence of every piece.
In a mixed design you could have black kitchen cabinets and white open shelves for visual contrast or grey kitchen cabinets with matching shelves for a cohesive look. On the same note, two-tone kitchen cabinets can be an interesting option if you want to play with colors and to create a dynamic decor. Another way to add color to the kitchen is by filling the open shelves with all sorts of items just as cups, containers, dishes and other things that contrast with the wall behind them. But color is just one of the things you can focus on when furnishing and decorating a room. Space-efficiency is another wonderful advantage that’s linked to open kitchen shelving. Let‘s say your kitchen has an odd layout or you have some empty corners to fill. Corner kitchen cabinets are one option but if you feel like they take up too much space or they make the room feel small, use open shelves instead. They can fit in all sorts of odd spaces such as nooks between the door and the wall or above the doors and windows.
