This old colonial home had many smaller rooms that needed to be opened up and integrated to make the space more usable for a modern day family. Floating glass shelves add a contemporary touch to the white brick backsplash of this transitional kitchen. Dark brown countertops are paired with white cabinets for a striking contrast.
Turn storage into a decorative statement by using floating shelves to house vases, pitchers, ramekins and other charming kitchen essentials like in this transitional space. A light blue tile backsplash provides welcome contrast.
White, Monochromatic Transitional Kitchen With Floating Shelves
Painted white brick, exposed ceiling beams and marble island countertop create a beautiful mix of texture in this monochromatic color design. White cabinetry fills the room for storage, while a trio of floating shelves allow for decorative display. The hardwood stain keeps the room feeling light.
Instead of weighing the bathroom down with heavy cabinetry, designer Stefani Stein installed glass shelves that almost seem to float in the air. Because they're built right into the wall, the shelves keep perfume bottles and other essentials close.
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.
The renovated kitchen is barely recognizable as the same space. The more open floor plan is brightened further with a white and gray palette, stainless appliances, new tile backsplash and floating shelves.
A beautiful wood wet bar pops against the bright, white walls. Floating glass shelves layer storage in the wood for organized and attractive storage. A green-tinted marble backsplash complements the neutral marble of the floor tile.
A crisp white palette and lots of natural light give this contemporary kitchen an open, airy feeling. A white tile backsplash is laid out in a herringbone pattern, while floating shelves keep glasses organized and easily at hand. A small wine fridge keeps favorites chilled and at the ready.
A textured limestone backsplash and under-shelf lighting make these contemporary shelves standouts. The floating Wenge wood shelves and an uncluttered quartz countertop below add clean lines and a balanced, relaxed feel to the neutral kitchen.
