Trend to Try: Wire Mesh Cabinets

It’s easy to see why open shelving has become a popular alternative to closed cabinets. They give the room an open, airy feel and they keep everyday items within reach. However, not everyone is willing to commit to that level of organization to maintain a clean look.

Another alternative to closed shelving that has caught our eye lately is wire mesh cabinets. They offer the versatility of masking clutter yet they allow light to shine through, adding that sought-after element of openness.

See below for a few of our favorite rooms that incorporate the trend beautifully. We’re even sharing one of our favorite DIY ideas to get this look (it’s super simple)!
