Got a small kitchen? You can organize while enhancing style with design and storage ideas that blend art and science.
One popular trend for kitchen enhancement is open shelving. You can take advantage of every square inch of available wall space, supplementing existing cabinet space, and using walls behind stoves and above sinks for additional storage.
Style-wise, if you have eclectic or color-inspired dinnerware, cookware or glassware, why not display them out in the open instead of hiding them behind cabinet doors?
This is also practical for items you use frequently. Not only will you have easier access to them, but you don't have to worry about them collecting dust since you'll be cleaning them after use anyway.
Here are a few of our favorite examples of open shelving:

One other benefit of open shelving? It's far cheaper than cabinets. And if you happen to choose Allspace wall organization panels and accessories, you'll save even more versus the container store brand.
Allspace doesn't look cheap though. The neutral grey finish complements almost any decor. And for more style options, paint the panels to fit your kitchen decor.
Allspace panels, shelves bins and hooks are built solid for plenty of holding power.
Flexible design means you can take advantage of almost any size and shape of open wall space.
Easy installation means you can have a basic setup mounted and ready to use in less than an hour.
