A well planned out kitchen where everything is in its place makes cooking a breeze. Most kitchen designs use cabinets to organize appliances and utensils, but what if you want to go with the no-cabinet look? Here are some ideas that can help you create a seriously stylish space, without the use of cabinets.
Look for Organizers that Save Space
This practical mug holder right next to the sink saves space and keeps your cups right where you want them. Since they are not hidden away in closed shelves, your mugs can also act as decor pieces on this stand. That’s right, keep that ‘World’s Best Mom’ mug out in the open so you can enjoy seeing it every day. An added bonus? They can drip water directly onto the drainboard, so you can skip drying them.
Use Open Shelves for Storage
Open shelves are smart and stylish and make the best use of available wall space, without adding cabinets. Since they are basically just planks of wood supported by brackets, they only cost a fraction of closed cabinets. You can look around for brackets that suit your kitchen and your taste – all wood or metal. You could choose intricately designed ones or simple ones. Whatever type of bracket and shelves you choose, make sure it goes well with the aesthetics of the rest of the kitchen. What a great space to show off your collection of beautiful earthenware, cookbooks, coloured glasses and more, right?
We love the charming aesthetic created in this old fashioned kitchen, where an entire wall has been creatively designed to hold open storage. The pinstriped wall pattern continues down into the shutters below the counter. Adorable, right?
Practical Meets Functional
This swoon-worthy kitchen follows a bare-boned theme, where even the storage below the counter is without cabinetry. A unique spin on the modular style of kitchen design, this design allows you to know where anything and everything is without having to search. This homeowner has even made use of one large glass wall by adding shelves in front of it. This way, the light is not blocked from that side and you are not compromising on storage. It’s a win-win. Sounds like something you can do in your kitchen? Of course, if you are the messy kind, this style is not for you.
Do you have a vintage collection of copper and brass pots and pans that have been lovingly put together over generations? This, right here, is the perfect way to show them off! Not to mention the accessibility. No more crawling into the end of your bottom cupboard and rummaging through heavy pots to find the perfect one.
A rough-hewn table and pinewood shelves with metal racks showcase minimalistic chic in this beautiful kitchen. Enjoy sun-dappled, hearty meals made with love! Now that’s the perfect mix of farmer’s and industrial-chic wouldn’t you agree?
Pretty Porcelain Ware
Here’s another inexpensive art idea for the kitchen wall or even the dining room wall. Grab some hooks and nails. This lovely idea uses wall hooks and narrow wooden shelves for mugs so that you can create a form of wall art with just your existing mugs. Arrange them according to colour, size or any other way you wish.
If you have a small kitchen and a skimpy budget, then a kitchen without cabinets could be a good starting point. Plan to add the shutters later on, if you wish, or enjoy the bare minimalistic look!
