Simple Kitchen Storage

Refresh a kitchen with paint, hardware and open shelves.

To give a cottage kitchen a facelift on a budget, consider exposed shelving. Here, designer Barb Purdy removed existing built-in cupboards and replaced them with cedar shelves that allow her to display only what she needs. This turns everyday objects into showpieces, and encourages decluttering. An affordable striped runner adds a hit of colour.
