    Default pretty, inexpensive cannisters

    so we have bitten the bullet and decided to have open shelving in the kitchen (don't tell me why i shouldn't do it! My mind is made up! )
    Where can i buy nice cannisters and the like to keep everything in? Nothing too sleek and modern, but not too kitsch and retro either. And not anything that costs the earth!

    Ikea definitely. Also try Freedom as they rotate their storage stuff fairly regularly so get reduced a lot.

    I'm a little addicted to www.larkmade.com.au too

    Yep, I was coming in to say Ikea too. My whole pantry looks like a Tupperware catalogue, only it's all Ikea and cost about a tenth of the price. I use mostly clear plastic ones with white lids that you can pour out of. That way I can see the contents. They do sell a more cannister style too. Their catalogue is available online if you visit their website.

    Are you wanting them all to match? How about a collection made up from ebay, garage sales, op shops etc. Could look kinda good if they were all different, but still similar enough. ie, similar shape but different material/colour. or similar colour/s, but different shapes.
