TREND: Open shelving and light, bright, all-white kitchens.
I love the all-white kitchen trend (I just did something similar in my own kitchen). Small details stand out that much more though, so little choices (like what jars to use for storage, or what kind of toaster you leave out) make a big difference in the look. The all-white kitchen above gets a design boost from open shelving too. And theirs looks pretty easy to pull off — literally. Just pull off the cabinet doors, spackle the holes, and there you have it.
For a similar look, try the items below!

- Dualit 4-slice toaster, Williams-Sonoma

- great white square dinnerware, Pottery Barn

You’ve probably noticed that open shelving in kitchens is hot right now. Folks everywhere are ripping out their old upper cabinets and replacing them with less bulky open shelving. Personally, I love the look! The results create an airy and more open space visually, but you do need to find a way to deal with all of the clutter. Keeping things neat and organized is a must with open shelves.
Thankfully, there are incredibly beautiful glass canisters and containers available today. From all glass to glass and steel to glass and wood, the options are endless. Isn’t it time to throw away all those bulky boxes and messy bags and put your food on display! Uniquely shaped pasta and colorful confections become not only a source of sustenance, but also a stylish addition to your kitchen.
Check out this collection of some of my favorite glass canisters on the market. Are you ready to introduce some open shelving into your life and make your kitchen storage an even more valuable asset?
