Basic wooden shelves can turn an empty wall into a showcase of farmhouse style. The interiors of this 18th century home, featured in “Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and Antiques,” has a curated collection of glass decanters on one shelf, then plates and glasses grouped by color on the other shelves.
A white color scheme keeps this small bathroom space feeling as spacious as possible. Built in shelves ensure storage room while maximizing floor space. A graphic wallpaper faces the glass door shower with white subway tile interior adding subtle pattern and texture to the room.
This modern kitchen has bold blue base cabinets and floating shelves, white glass front cabinets and trim, contemporary black and white patterned wall tile with metallic trim, farmhouse sink, and white marble countertops.
Open glass shelving showcases a fully stocked bar on one side of this basement entertainment room. A white tile backsplash runs under the shelving, and stainless steel chairs line the wood bar countertop. A step across the small hallway takes you into the playroom featuring built in-shelving for container storage. A green rug adds a pop of bright color and fun to the playspace.
Go glam with glass - If you have a lot of attractive collectables to display, then open shelving will show them off to best effect. Glass shelves have a neutral quality, meaning they work in both traditional and modern schemes.
