Good morning, and happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend and a happy Mother’s Day if you were celebrating.
Today we’re talking pretty kitchen storage solutions (i.e. hutches, buffets, open shelving, etc.). These solutions can be used in a variety of different ways — to conceal items or to display them; to corral items that will be used and items that will not; and to further the design aesthetic that is trying to be achieved. Because of the versatility, if you have room for one of these spaces in your kitchen — even a small one — they bring about a really custom and luxurious feel.
This china hutch doubles as a coffee station, with the built-in espresso machine. I have mixed feelings about built-in coffee machines. But that’s for another post. 🙂 A mix of clear glass and porcelain accessorizes this cabinetry.
This is actually my in-laws’ kitchen. There is a cabinet above the little countertop area for glassware that we use on a daily basis; an armoire of sorts in the corner reserved for pretty items that are just for decoration; and the center cabinet on the left-hand wall stores tons of other serving pieces and pewter that are stacked and nested.
I love the mix of dark and light in this kitchen, and especially all of the pretty storage on the right wall. Those recessed glass-front cabinets are beautifully done. I would imagine that the double-door cabinet on that wall is the refrigerator/freezer combo. Stunning cabinetry there, as well.
How about this rustic two-toned kitchen and that amazing glass-front cabinet? I love the muted, mossy green and that rich chocolate wood.
Open shelving, a couple of cabinets, and transitional finishes create a really unique and open area that was definitely designed custom for the homeowner to enhance the way that they wanted to utilize this space. And please take a moment to sincerely appreciate that ceiling. That’s detailed design and architecture at its finest.
I’m basically a fan of any taupe cabinetry these days, but the paneling and exposed hinges on these is particularly stunning. Also, the paned glass — really subtle, but without it, it’s just not as good.
A nice idea for plates and other serving pieces with a theme, providing an eclectic, collected-over-time look.
I hope you have a great rest of your Monday!
