With the start of a new month, you may be looking to make space for productivity and fresh inspiration. After all, the year is still young, so there's lots of time to work on those goals that you may have set for yourself recently! A home office is one of those things that so many of us would benefit from, but often can’t seem to find the square footage for. The good news is that whether you have just one small corner of your den to work with, or an entire designated room, you can carve out a workspace that’s all your own just about anywhere you can place a desk.

Life and the City

Open shelving can make a kitchen feel bigger and add a ton of personality, but it can also be daunting to have your whole life (or your kitchenware) on display all the time, Monday through Sunday! You wouldn't exactly want to display your mismatched mug collection or show off your mounds of lost-lid tupperware. But, don’t let the pressure of perfection stop you from having the open shelving (and kitchen) of your dreams!

Open shelving is a functional design element that is easy to love. It brings dimension, gives your space a finishing detail and is also a space saving and organization solution. What’s a little more tricky about open shelving are the technical aspects such as construction, installation, or even space planning. The good news is that whether you’re ready to take on a shelving project all on your own, or you plan to leave it to the professionals, there is an open shelving unit that will work well for you.
