Lookbook: Ideas for Open Shelving in your Bespoke Kitchen

Creating a display of all of your kitchen belongings could seem daunting, but open shelving in a kitchen can be a way of finding the right mix of maximalism and minimalism – plus, it can make your kitchen goods more accessible.

Here are some ideas for styling open shelving in your custom kitchen design:

Crockery display stands

Put your antiques, ceramics, and decorative plates on display for a culinary-themed showcase in your kitchen. This bespoke kitchen features a mix of eye-level open shelving and lit glass cupboards to add even more shine and light to this bright white kitchen.

Under cabinet open shelving

Incorporating open shelves into your custom kitchen island can draw the eye lower and create a more open and dynamic feel, rather than having a totally enclosed island that might dominate the space.

We love this client’s décor that brings the blue and white theme together with patterned ceramics and jugs that are both stylish and useful.

Another stunning example of open shelving in an island is this mirrored-back, lighted display area that contrasts spectacularly with the bold black island! The minimalistic decorations of crystals makes this contemporary kitchen even brighter and more sophisticated.

Small display units

With custom made kitchen furniture, you have all the possibilities to bring your own character into the kitchen. This bespoke kitchen features small open shelves to allow the client to add their colourful décor into the modern kitchen. We love their use of colour alongside the navy, slate, and copper colour scheme!

Add texture and dimension

This open shelving display above a tiled splashback and underneath statement lighting units is complete with plants, patterned ceramics and candles to add a maximalist feel to the sleek kitchen without overpowering the chill vibe.

Store your cookbooks, display family photos, and incorporate a media unit with television into your custom breakfast bar or to make it even more cosy and practical. Harness a more finished look with custom seating, bespoke lighting within the open shelves and plenty of extra storage.
