There is something about a small cozy kitchen that evokes feelings of home for me.
One of the things I am interested in is open shelves and I found a lot of those when looking at cottage kitchens.
Open shelves are a great way to display those things that give a kitchen a cottage feel.
This kitchen uses shelves to display two of my favorite things. White dishes and baskets.
I love the variation in shelves. These shelves have been painted a cottage white and have been dressed up with some quaint gingerbread trim.
Elsewhere in the kitchen, the owner has chosen a more rustic touch. While the shelves are open, the owner has used an old screen door over them.
Small cottage kitchens require ingenuity and open shelves can be anywhere you can find the space.
Here the owner has utilized the space above her cupboards to add a shelf.
I think it is absolutely charming.
How do you feel about open shelves in the kitchen?
