The contrast of dark wood open shelving against white shiplap looks great at the Peak. Keeping finishes like walls, countertops and cabinets consistent, in the same color family also helps make the space feel bigger.
The kitchen is home to another DIY moment. With some hardware brackets, and a solid piece of reclaimed wood that eventually had to be cut to size, the couple installed open shelving. It’s the perfect place to house their collection of ceramic dishware. A space was also added to hang pots to dry. The genius design allows water from the pots to drip right into their overflowing plant in the kitchen.
Open shelving is super versatile, but it can get cluttered quickly if you don't have a game plan. Large white shelves are filled with wire baskets and clear containers to help corral loose items while allowing you to see what’s inside.
Open shelving adds an industrial touch while pulling all the homeowner's curated pieces together for a comfortable, lived-in feel. Exposed duct work and cable lighting accentuate the urban setting, while midcentury details polish off the design.
Using a white bookshelf for shoe storage makes it easy to see an entire collection and simplifies getting ready. Adding a woven chair to the space gives the room the feel of a dressing room and elevates it beyond just a closet.
By adding vertical shelves between windows you can create a fresh and open storage unit in any room. The floating shelves can provide the same amount of storage as a case good without the use of a bulky cabinet or bookshelf. Design by John Gidding
