It's not hard to run out of space in a kitchen. From appliances to dishes, and utensils to cookbooks, this room often feels like it requires one thing: more square footage than you actually have. But since you can't always resort to the oven as a makeshift spot for storage, opt for open shelving instead. What we love about this post from design blogger Wit and Delight is that rustic open shelving brings a homespun quality to otherwise modern decor. The wood finish complements the hunter green cabinetry and gold fixtures, while the collection of displayed items looks stylish and contained. Put a pair of wood shelves up in your kitchen for a similar effect.
