Using open concept shelving in your home can seem sooo daunting at times. One of the most common questions we get is where to put it, and once you find a spot for it, WHAT exactly do you even do with it??? To celebrate our BIG announcement coming this Sunday, we’re sharing 4 of our favorite spaces and ways to use open shelving in your home. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for our big reveal this Sunday!

The kitchen is one of our FAVORITE spaces to use open shelving. Not only is it a statement, but also SO functional. Simply throw some simple dish ware and breadboards on, and you’re ready to go! If you’re struggling to keep the shelves from looking ‘cluttered’ we generally recommend sticking with three colors or less, and grouping similar items together.

Open concept shelving is often harder to come by in the bathroom as most people fear all of their ‘personals’ on display for the world to see (and let’s be real, it’s a fear for good reason...). Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way…you really can hide your prescription drugs + deodorant AND have pretty bathroom shelving too! We recommend combining open shelving with lower cabinetry, and if that’s not an option, use baskets with lids to keep all of your personal bathroom items hidden + tidy.

One of the best parts about open shelving in a dining or living space is the creativity and endless possibilities that accompany it. Don’t shy away from using a variety of plants, textures, and art prints to create a playful and fun space!

Open shelving in the kid’s room is the perfect way to create a functional and fun space that your kids can really play in (that’s what it’s all about in the end right?!) Place open baskets on lower shelves so the kids have easy access to take out (and hopefully put away…we can dream right?) their toys and use upper shelving for the more “fluffy” decorative statement pieces.
