Open shelf parts are a particularly popular component in modern kitchen equipment. Did you know that there are three special features when it comes to open shelves? These are the minimalist, the overloaded and the combined design. The principle of "less is more" is more often preferred here, i. only a few properly positioned pieces of crockery or art objects find space on the shelves. The functional method stands in contrast to putting everything on the shelves. The most popular method includes worn-out items and intricately placed flourishes. The result is an interesting, practical option without any overloads. Today we accentuate 10 of these stunning designs! Scroll down and enjoy our picture gallery! Have lots of fun with it!
Less is more

Somehow, everything fits together!
