Rip Your Upper Cabinets Out Tonight: 7 Stylish Kitchens with Open Shelving

Open shelves are still really popular with my Denver area clients.  I love the casual look, although I’m sure kitchen cabinet people are over them and over the trend of having no upper cabinets.  I like the airy and open look they give a kitchen and I love the opportunity to put in a sconce or add some art.  You can save a little money and look casually stylish at the same time!   If you’re considering switching a few upper cabinets to open shelves, or even exchanging all of your uppers for open shelves – check out these 7 looks below for inspiration and warn your family that the upper cabinets may be gone by morning!
