When turning my traditional hill country home into my own personal farmhouse there was one design element I knew I wanted to incorporate — open shelving.
Open shelving can be used in many different ways, but the kitchen is the most common area they are placed. Open shelving is both functional and a unique way to add character when styled with your pretty dishes and kitchen pieces. It gives you the practical storage needed in the kitchen and when styled correctly, adds a lot to your space.
There are many people who want to add classic farmhouse style in their house without having to completely redo the entire house. Open shelving is a great way to add that farmhouse look in any style of home. Whether you add it in the kitchen by replacing your traditional kitchen cabinet with shelving or you add shelving to an accent wall in place of furniture or wall art, it will look great and give you a little of that farmhouse feel in any style home.
