Featured in this Elle Article open shelving is a key trend for 2019.

“A trend I’m seeing is replacing kitchen upper cabinets with metal, wood or glass shelving. Inspired by hotel and retail spaces, this adds to the overall bold statements many want to make in their homes, forgoing the minimalism that was popular in years past.”  – Sara Ianniciello, Director of Design at Whitehall Interiors

This trend for open shelving is in line with another key look which is kitchens with no upper cabinets. In a move against the previously popular minimalist look, walls are now adorned with open glass shelves.

This allows the homeowner to proudly display their kitchen paraphernalia. And why not, after all, you are proud of your favourite set of plates or shiny copper pans.

Let The Light In.

Glass is the perfect material for shelving to show-off your kitchenalia and can be made to perfectly match the style of your kitchen. Whether you have a sleek monochromatic kitchen with brushed steel accessories. Or a country kitchen look with gold accents and marble tops you can create shelving to fit in seamlessly. Shelving is also something which can be updated regularly. You can change what you display, from plants to books to antique scales.

Choosing glass rather than wood or metal for shelving also maximises space and light. Creating the illusion of a more spacious kitchen. Glass will also reflect and amplify any colour or pattern which is covering the walls or surfaces.
