The kitchen lets you add tons of storage. You can fit lots of different compartments for things like plates, cups, wine bottles, glasses, etc. It’s very practical, especially if you also plan to use the island as a bar or breakfast table. Open shelving is very practical in the kitchen because it lets you easily grab the things you need without having to open and close drawers or cabinet doors. They’re also great for display. In addition, shelves make the kitchen seem more open and airy than closed cabinets. Keep all kitchen essentials handy and store them off the counter. For example, hang your utensils on the backsplash and have small shelves on which to store all the tiny spice jars. This way they’re always within reach.
The trend of making use of old, worn materials or items is a must in green living. As you can see in the above image, a salvaged cabinet comes alive in the kitchen, giving it an interesting piece of furniture that could have been part of a living room in its previous life. By leaving salvaged items a little worn and torn, this further makes them unique creations in the kitchen, while preventing waste in the environment. Stone in the kitchen is always a great natural material, but you can also choose from stone countertops that are made from recycled materials. This takes the green initiative one step further. Stone can be trendy and colorful, as can be seen from the countertop in the above image that is made from recycled wine, beer and Vodka bottles.
Sometimes 4” or 5” of wall depth is all you need to go from chaos to uber-organized. This wall of hooks for pots and pans proves this. More accessible than they would be crammed into a cupboard or deep drawer, these pots make very efficient use of what would otherwise be wasted wall space. This unique and wildly efficient cup/mug hanger simply slides onto your existing shelf. It requires no screws or any other assembly. This is a highly effective use of the “dead space” that inevitably falls in the top 1/3 of most cupboards.
