You’ll Wish You Didn’t Know This About Open Shelving
Open shelving began as a way to show off your cookware in the early 1900s, and it has since become quite popular again, as it maximizes your kitchen’s space. However, a lot of people have concerns about the daily maintenance that open shelving requires.
Specialists say open shelving requires almost daily upkeep, as dust and grime accumulate easily in these possibly hard-to-reach areas. Lifestyle writer and editor Ayn-Monique Klahre conducted her own experiment to find out just how dirty your kitchen gets in three weeks.
She concluded that her frequently-used countertop collected less dust overall, as did the wine rack opposite her work space, even though she only used that periodically. However, areas next to her fridge and near an open door used to mimic open shelving showed significant increase in dust and grime that would need frequent cleaning, especially before using any cookware kept there.
