The Classic Kid-Friendly Kitchen
Executive Editor Jessica Thuston transforms her family's lackluster kitchen into a crisp, new space that's big on ideas and easy on the budget.
Easy & AccessibleOpen Shelves
Storage wasn't an issue, so the Thustons opted for open shelves and extended the marble backsplash up to the ceiling.
Open shelves make a kitchen feel more spacious and airy. "They're also cheaper than wall-hung cabinets, especially these white shelves with metal brackets I got from IKEA," Jessica says. "I like using them for cereal bowls, coffee cups, and anything else you might use every day."
