Open Floor Plan RedoScandinavian Kitchen, Sydney

What Houzz contributors are saying:
At the end of the kitchenWhen using standard-sized cabinets, it can be difficult to perfectly fill the available wall space (which is often an arbitrary number of centimetres and not standard cabinet width) with cabinetry.One smart solution is to fill the last few centimetres of space (say, a 25-centimetre gap at the end of a beautiful row of matching 60-centimetre wide cabinets) with open shelves in a contrasting finish or material to create an attractive accent that anchors the edge like a bookend. Splurging on this add-on can make a kitchen with stock cabinets feel completely custom.
