The popularity of floating shelves among homeowners, particularly within kitchens, is on the rise and it is easy to see why. A simple but impactful way to introduce an accent color, new texture or material within a space, floating shelves can create focal areas within the overall cabinet layout while creating a modern, clean aesthetic to display treasured items.
“Homeowners often use open or floating shelving for decorative purposes, but they also offer a great solution for organizing items in highly functional ways,” says Stephanie Pierce, director of design and trends at MasterBrand Cabinets. “Floating Shelves are a great complement for high-use items like spices, oils or even glassware and plates. If you have regular-use items, open shelving can be very convenient – especially when used in tandem with cabinets.”
Highly versatile, floating shelves can be used anywhere throughout the home, not just the kitchen. Bathrooms, bars, laundry rooms and living rooms can all be enhanced by adding open shelving to create a space that reflects the homeowner’s personal style. The perfect mix of practical and sophisticated, floating shelves can infuse the personality of the homeowner and provide a way to display hobbies, such as cookbooks and accessories for the home chef, or cocktail tools for the budding mixologist.
