Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Kitchen and Bath

If you are anything like most homeowners, you are always looking for ways you can refresh and reinvent your space. Plus, if you are planning on updating your kitchen into something modern or contemporary, you may want to consider a cabinet-free look. The idea may sound a bit crazy but homeowners are jumping onboard with this super chic and functional trend. 
You may be wondering, what are some of the advantages of an open shelving concept in your kitchen? We are giving you five reasons why you should consider taking the jump. Let’s take a look! 
Five Reasons Why Open Shelving is a Must
1. More Storage Options.
Are you always looking for ways to increase your storage options in the kitchen? With the upper cabinets gone, you now have more room for your dishware and appliances. Narrow and deep cabinetry makes it difficult to store larger items and nearly impossible to get them down once you have stored them. Open shelving allows for more space and is much easier to reach your items.
2. Adds a Sense of Warmth.
The kitchen should feel warm and welcoming, especially when you are having over guests. Open shelving in the kitchen will make visitors feel like they are at home, and they will not feel like they are being intrusive when they reach for a glass or plate.
3. Makes the Space Brighter and Larger.
Removing your hunky kitchen cabinetry will make the space feel much brighter and open. Kitchen cabinetry can make the room feel small, closed off, and dark. When you remove them, the kitchen walls are able to reflect more sunlight which creates an airy feeling, making the space appear much bigger.
4. Inexpensive.
Who does not like to save money? Open shelving is the best economic solution that will give you the modern look you are seeking without cleaning out your pockets.
5. Simple Cleaning Process.
Kitchen cabinetry requires thoroughly cleaning to remove dust and to prevent mildew from forming. Dust will not accumulate on the shelving as easily because your dishes are constantly being used. If it does, you can simply wipe it clean while doing the dishes.
