Green walls and a decidedly coastal feel are reflected in the flourishing houseplant sitting on a floating shelf in the dining room of HGTV Dream Home 2013. The driftwood-inspired lamp is a nice natural touch.
The geometric shapes layered into this sophisticated kitchen become a work of art in and of themselves. A metal floating shelf crosses over the white rectangular tiles, offset by striking pitchers, a glass bottle and a pretty, graphic hand towel.
Clean lines and neutral tones defines this sleek, modern bedroom featuring a dark wood headboard and matching floating shelf. Fresh white flowers compliment crisp white bed linens as the only decoration in the space.
A chic desk and a floating shelf complete a sleek contemporary home office. A well-chosen contemporary art piece radiates within the space. Using white and silver as the overall palate allows assorted accents to pop.
A popular way to integrate storage into a shower is with a wall niche, but adding one can be a costly addition. An excellent cost-saving alternative is to use a mitered piece of tile installed into the corner as a floating shelf. The only added labor is the cutting off the shelf tile, as well as any wall tile to which it will be attached.
