What Houzz contributors are saying:
Placing frequently used items like plates, glasses and basic cookware on shelves keeps them in easy reach and creates a shop-like display that tells a personal story. Here, clear jars, ornamental bottles and curvaceous pots lend color and shape to the small space.Cons: The issue with shelf uppers for some people is that the look is much busier, especially for those who have many items to stuff on shelves or who lack the confidence to style open shelving. Unattractive products may have nowhere else to go, and not everyone wants to feel as though they live in a grocery store aisle — or do the extra dusting required.Tip: Before you tear down upper cabinets, try removing the doors to see how you feel about living with open shelves. You may even decide to keep it just like that.
