Trend Alert: Open Shelving Is Functional, Space-Saving, and Stylish!

For several years, open shelving has been making spaces functional and stylish, adding an attractive option for homeowners who are brave enough to bare it all. (Thankfully, a remodeled kitchen gives you the opportunity to be organized behind the cabinet doors and decorative on those open shelves that are designed into the mix.) Even Magnolia, of Chip and Joanna Gaines fame, recommend open shelving as a great option for your new design. From their blog: “Open shelving is a functional design element that is easy to love. It brings dimension, gives your space a finishing detail and is also a space saving and organization solution.” Magnolia goes on to say that construction, installation, and space planning are the only barriers to getting open shelving into your space—and that’s where Seigle’s has you covered!

Our friends at DuraSupreme cabinetry have been talking about open shelving for years:

“The standard for open shelving is trending away from the bookcase cabinet or a cabinet without doors and drifting towards the stand-alone open shelf. Whether floating or supported with some type of brackets, these open shelves are appearing in more and more kitchens as another option for storage and display.”

Check out a few spaces with open shelves—some from our cabinetry brands and some from completed Seigle’s kitchens—and get inspired!

And remember, as DuraSupreme says, you don’t have to worry about kitchen trends coming and going faster than you can get them installed. As they remind us on their popular trends website: “In fashion, a trend is typically thought of as a popular fad; it will be around for a short time and then fade away, only to re-appear years later for a whole new generation. Interior design trends take longer to develop but they also remain relevant for a longer period of time.”

So what are you waiting for? Get started on your remodel with Seigle’s, and add space-opening, awesomely decorative open shelves to your kitchen or bathroom. At Seigle’s, design and estimate are totally free, and we can connect you with an installer through our ProInstall program, and even set you up with financing through Greensky!
