If you’re considering giving open shelves a shot or are just feeling the itch to redecorate your shelves, we’ve got 22 genius tips on how to have the most stylish kitchen in town.
Choose a material: The most common material is wood for kitchen cabinets. Wood is durable, versatile, and can be stained or painted and can have a million different looks. Other materials include metal/stainless steel, plastic laminate, and lower quality MDF or particle board. Depending on your lifestyle and budget will help you decide on a material that suits your style and wallet. Metal cabinets and wood are more expensive than plastic laminate and particle board.
Ceramic Tile, Given the numerous shapes, sizes and colors available, ceramic tile is probably the most versatile option (it’s also proven to be timeless). There’s plenty of room to play with patterns while still maintaining clean lines: stack tiles in columns, stagger them, or lay them at an angle. Most tile requires minimal maintenance, just be sure to seal the grout so it doesn’t get stained or absorb water.
