A pantry is a wonderful thing to have in your home. It’s the place where you can store and hide all sorts of things. But a pantry can’t solve all your storage problems. Even though it’s very helpful, it also all depends on its size. A small pantry might seem like a waste of space but, if you organize it cleverly, you’ll see that it’s not true.

Tips for Making Open Kitchen Shelving Aesthetic AND Useful

Open shelving just might be the hottest kitchen trend right now. It’s a spacious and airy and color-coordinated touch to the kitchen space. The beautiful thing about open shelves is that your exposed items can be shared with everyone who comes near!…which, frankly, is also the challenging thing about open shelves. There is undoubtedly a balance to strike in stocking shelves to make them both functional and visually pleasing.

This article contains some successful examples of open shelving in the kitchen; however, you won’t be able to embrace all of them in a single space. See if you can find one that speaks to you, and work toward recreating the look in your own kitchen, with your own treasured pieces.

One or Two Colors.

This strategy isn’t hard to understand, really. Because everyone will be able to see, immediately, the objects on your shelves, one way to tie the items to the room’s style is through color. Particularly in a monochromatic kitchen, using one or two colors in the items you display will define or solidify the color palette of the space and bring a cohesiveness into the space overall. Notice in the kitchen above, dark yellows and creamy whites create the color in the otherwise neutral kitchen.

5 Ideas for Decorating Above Kitchen Cabinets

It’s not uncommon, for one reason or another, to have space between one’s upper kitchen cabinets and the ceiling. While it happens often enough, getting down to actually decorating this gap can be a tricky business. Kitchens are typically busy places anyway, and no one wants to add to the chaos and make the room feel top-heavy. Conversely, however, is the barren, unfinished feeling that might ensue if the gap is left completely empty. While there are a variety of successful strategies in decorating this space (discussed below), one resolute rule remains intact across-the-board: No tired-looking artificial ivy and dust-attracting fake grapes!


If you have a displayable collection, consider using the above-cabinet gap to display your collection. The collection might be ceramic-ware or kitchen-related items (note the cake stands displayed in the photo), but it could really be anything. Think outside the box (or the kitchen) about what you love – statues, mirrors, model cars, etc. One benefit of using this space as a display wall is that it keeps treasured collectibles out of reach of little hands!

Choose The Best Material For Your Metal Backsplash

Metal backsplashes are a quite popular option in the kitchen, especially in those that have modern and contemporary interior designs. A metal backsplash can be a unique focal point and it’s also a very functional option. It’s easy to clean and it doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. But there are several options to choose from when you decide which material to use. Here are some of the most popular ones along with the advantages and disadvantages that come with using them.

Copper backsplashes.

For a cohesive décor, match the copper backsplash with similar textures, finishes and colors

A copper backsplash would look best in a kitchen with a retro interior design. It’s a soft material and it’s easy to mold and texture. Copper is also a lightweight material and this makes it easy to install. It’s a great option for a DIY project. You can install it in tiles or in a single sheet. A copper backsplash is also easy to clean but it’s prone to discoloration over time. It also rusts easy and this doesn’t make it easy to maintain.
