Floating Kitchen Shelves

Many people are afraid to install open floating kitchen shelves in the kitchen, assuming they will inevitably end up cluttered. Your kitchen can feel more open, airy, and updated if you substitute some or all of your upper cabinets with open shelving, which can be just as functional with the proper technique and upkeep. Open shelves that are similar in material or color to base cabinets or countertops or contrasting in a different finish should be included when planning your kitchen storage.

Style open shelving with workhorse things such as glassware, dishware, or tableware or cookware; move less-often-used items to base cabinets or the pantry. Add in decorative pieces, including plants or exhibit-worthy serving bowls, to help your open shelves look like a display. Regardless of whether you’re looking for a complete overhaul or just a little refresh, you’ll discover a variety of open shelving kitchen concepts to brighten up your area.

Embrace Rustic Wood Kitchen Shelves

In a farmhouse-style kitchen, open shelving is usually crafted from stained or reclaimed wood, a material that tends to fit in any setting and looks great almost everywhere. It has been trusted in every place, such as in these low-tech California homes. Wire hooks secure the wooden shelves, enhancing their rustic charm. Ultimately, they are supported above by an exposed wooden beam ceiling in turn.

Accent With Open Shelving

But now, instead of placing open shelves on both sides of the hamburger extractor, put them opposite some exhaust ducts. This way, you can store stuff while still having an attractive face. Style the open shelving with utility items such as glassware, tableware, and cooking tools; base cabinets or the pantry can handle less frequently used goods.

Create an Open Pantry

Put in open shelves to make your kitchen more useful if you have extra room—a wall or perhaps a kitchen island—but no pantry. You’ll have a better-organized pantry after this endeavour, and the visibility will let you know just how much of some dry products you still have.

Remove Cabinet Doors

Removing the doors off of your current cabinets is the simplest approach to modernise your kitchen without doing a complete makeover. If you want to increase the wow effect, think about painting your cabinets’ interiors a different colour.

Embrace Symmetry

Keeping common dishware visible and accessible is made easy with a pair of large wood open shelves on either side of the kitchen sink. Hanging wall sconces above the shelf to add another level of lighting, Calimia Home arranged the window above the sink in a similar pattern on opposite sides. When set against the brilliant white backsplash tile, the natural wood shelves provide warmth.

Create a Coffee Bar

If you have a daily requirement for a cup of coffee upon waking up, you may want to contemplate the utilisation of open shelves to establish a coffee bar inside your kitchen. This project may be simplified by including a few open shelves above the coffee pot or espresso machine, either at the end of the main countertop or in a designated space, as seen in the image.
