Nothing is out of sight or out of mind. All this openness brings to attention another detail: the function of these shelves. The practical thing to do would be to fill the shelves with items that you use on a daily basis. This way they'll always be right there, easy to grab and easy to use, with no need to open and close doors or drawers. Another option is to use the shelves as display surfaces for decorations such as ornate plates, framed photos and other things. Either of these options is great as long as it suits your needs.
It‘s the hub of the home and where we typically spend the most time, so that‘s why new kitchen trends and innovations draw the most interest. Anything that can make work easier, storage better and cooking faster will enhance your time in the kitchen. Besides, some of the latest technology is just plain cool. At the 2017 Architectural Digest Design Show, we got a look at the some of the newest appliances and fixtures for the kitchen. Sleek cabinetry is still hot and this kitchen island from Bauformat includes the latest must-have: Undercounter LED lighting. While it‘s a cool look, the addition of lighting under the edge of the counter also serves an in important functional purpose because it means no more digging around in a dark drawer or cabinet. Another great example of a clean, modern look is this kitchen island from Scavolini. It is also innovative because of the porcelain material used for the top. Textured, matte and durable, even when you touch it, it‘s hard to believe porcelain is the material. The cabinetry is equally smooth and sleek. Cesar, the Italian company based near Venice, presented a cooktop that is rather new for the American market but is more known in the European market. It integrates the burners directly in the countertop, rather than via a cooktop insert. Of course, this cannot be done with every kitchen countertop material — only those surfaces that can take the heat. The minimalist kitchen design also includes a folding shelf that can be turned up to hide small items on the shelf, or be folded down for extra handy storage space while working at the counter. The shelving also has moveable hooks along the bottom for hanging kitchen cloths or utensils.
Then there's also the budget concern. Open kitchen shelving is cheaper than cabinetry and the installation cost is also reduced in this case. Of course, you don`t have to give up other types of storage in favor of open shelves. Cabinets have their own advantages such as the fact that they‘re roomy and that they hide the things you don`t want to look at every day, keeping them safe and concealed. If you find both types practical, then choose a mixed design.
