What Houzz contributors are saying:
Keep the space airyOpen shelves will make your kitchen feel lighter and more spacious. This narrow room could have appeared smaller with a row of wall cabinets. The long shelves don’t encroach on the space, and instead help to open it out.
Take your height into account If you’re a little shorter than average and will frequently have to climb a stepladder to reach high-up pots and pans, then open storage might not be the most practical option for you. If height is on your side, however, you will probably find reaching up to an item much easier than bending down to rummage around in a low cupboard for it.High open storage is also particularly useful if you don’t want your little ones to get their hands on your kitchen equipment.
