This is a detail we've noticed is common to many traditional Mexican kitchens: charming arched openings to shelving beneath the countertop. It's a little bit of a decorative touch, a little architectural, and a beautiful way to frame open shelving.
Here are a few examples:
- Long, low arches filled with ceramics and other vessels.
- From a commercial kitchen, these tiled openings stow crates of vegetables.
- Another restaurant kitchen with open arches for storage.
- A gorgeous kitchen with turquoise tile and a rustic arch for storage in the foreground.
