Open floating shelves VS cabinetry with doors

image

In the past I’ve said I could never have open shelving in the kitchen. Although my cabinets are neat, I never want to feel obligated to have everything picture perfect should I be in a rush one day putting dishes away. But the more and more I see them, I really like the look. It gives off a diner feel. It’s a great way to open a space and prevent a galley kitchen from feeling closed in. The floating shelves gives an airy element to a room and if you have beautiful dishes, why not show them off? Colorful bowls can serve as function and decor by infusing color into the space. So what do you think. Open shelves vs regular cabinets???
