So last week we discussed Pegged…. and I begged of you to tell me what you think of hanging your pots and pans out for everyone to see on a peg board in the kitchen. Thank you for all the great feedback.

This week I wanna see what you think about Exposed Shelving in the Kitchen. I’m pretty sure how I feel about this one, but let’s hear it from you!!

  • You have to be so careful with this trend. I hate clutter and feel that everything should have its place (preferably in a drawer). That said, I think this can look beautiful (in the kitchen specifically) if two things are true. One, you are at least a little OCD and two, your glasses, bowls, plates and pitchers are pretty. I think I can get on board with the second image, but the first is making me nervous.

  • I agree 100%. The 1st picture I don’t like at all. Too full of “stuff” and I just to clean it up.

    The 2nd picture I think is nice, but not for me. I like to look in my kitchen and see what I think is “clean” meaning everything put up, and nothing on the shelves, counter tops etc.

    I also think the “look” is fine for someone with a small family or a single couple. In my house, we need more plates, bowls etc. and my shelves would look cluttered (which is fine if there closed off.) I love to cook and my mixing bowls alone fill the cabinet.

    I do look the open area for the cookbooks, and the kitchen in general.

  • Considering my kitchen doesn’t stay staged for photographs, I have cabinets and the countertop is cluttered– I’m thinking I’ll continue to enjoy just looking at this design concept. I do appreciate it and enjoy it thoroughly.

  • You not only have to deal with dust but also a certain amount
    of grease in the kitchen. For this reason I like everything tucked away in a cabinet or a drawer. I probably would not put
    a peg board or open shelving in the kitchen.
