open shelving - love it or leave it?
I am early in my planning stages of the kitchen reno and am seriously considering a small corner of open shelving. I think it would be more functional and visually more interesting than sticking a cabinet in that space.
I know we are early in the "open shelving" era , but can anyone share their experience with this? Is dust an issue?
I plan to use the space for everyday dishes, glasses, tea, often-used spices, ie, things that are touched often.
The area is in the corner between my oven and my sink, so it is prime workspace, which to me supports the open shelving idea.
