Dramatic back lighting make suspended floating shelves pop against the deep blue accent wall. Distressed metal panels framed in the tall cabinets flank the built-in buffet and floating shelves. This accent wall creates a focal point of the room and adds an energetic visual element to the space.
To create shelving that fit the style of the kitchen, designers of America's Most Desperate Kitchens added some wood shelves suspended by metal bars to create industrial style shelves above the stove in this bright kitchen space.
To create a polished look in this remodeled kitchen, designers added a stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher and sink. A stainless steel range hood is suspended just above the center of the kitchen island, its geometric design complementing that of the hexagonal tiles. On the back wall above the sink, open shelving creates functional, convenient storage for easy access to dishes.
This Southwestern-style bar showcases hair-on-hide panels as wallcovering and floating glass shelves suspended by threaded rebar rods with bolts to support the glass. The cowhides are arranged diagonally to create additional visual interest where they meet in the middle of the wall.
The kitchen uses cool quiet colors and high windows to make this area feel large and spacious under the saw-tooth ceiling. Open metal shelves and pot-racks are suspended from the ceiling to create an airy feeling that traditional wall cabinets would not provide.
The saw-tooth roof design and the low-slung furniture makes this great room feel open and spacious. Open metal shelves suspended from the kitchen ceiling eliminate wall cabinets--this allows for more windows and a more open feeling everywhere. The open metal work of the pot rack, the windows and the bar stools create a light, airy feeling.
Wires are used to suspend these chunky ‘floating’ walnut shelves on the wall. Underneath, a warm, white LED light is hidden behind the cantilevered glass desk. It illuminates the air bubbles within the glass and is an eye-catching element at night when the rest of the lighting is low.
