DIY Hack For Open Shelving
If you are building a new home or remodeling a kitchen and need to cut corners in price, consider open shelving vs. cabinetry design. Open shelving is more affordable than custom cabinetry and gives a room a more open and airy look.
When it comes to storage and organization, finding things is easier with open kitchen shelving vs. looking through dark cabinets. Display colorful dishware and decorative items on open shelving and you also find yourself saving money on additional decorations for the walls.
The kitchen isn’t the only room in the house that could use open shelving vs. cabinetry. Bathrooms can also take advantage of this new trend in wall and storage decor. There is not much stored in a bathroom that needs to be in a cabinet. Towels can be rolled up neatly and stacked, and accessories can be placed in baskets.
