7 Easy Tips For Styling Your Shelves

  1. Allison says:

    I don’t have upper cabinets in my kitchen but instead 4 open shelves for our everyday dishes. How do you recommend adding in design elements to functional open shelves that won’t take away needed space?

    • Cynthia Harper says:

      Great Question! I recommend adding in framed artwork because it is thin so it won’t take up much space on your shelves, but it will fill vertical space and give you an opportunity to showcase your style. I also recommend using antique cutting boards because they look really stylish on open shelving and yet they are also practical, so you get style and function all at the same time. Another things is to make sure your dishes have a similar color palette so that the open shelves have a stylish and cohesive feel, rather than seeming random. I hope these ideas help! XO, Cynthia

    Thank you!

      Hi! Yes they are DIY from local barnwood. We didn’t use stain because we loved the look of the naturally aged barn wood!
