Shelves are one of the most common elements that you come across in a kitchen irrespective of the size of household. However, quiet often that not, these shleves are typically very ordinary looking with many of them not even providing the desired storage areas. Since shelves typically occupy a large volume of a kitchen, a well-designed shelf can go on to give your kitchen a completely new look or on the downside totally ruin the image of your kitchen. It also ensures that you are provided with ample amounts of storage areas, the lack of which can cause undesireable effects and wastage of precious floor space.

This kitchen is provided with sleek storage cabinets, both, above and below the cooking counter. The cabinets are finished in white and are both covered as well as uncovered. This way the users are given more flexibilty as well as visually a better element to look at.

2.Thinking outside the box

If your kitchen is so small that you cannot have additional storage spaces, why not think outside the box and opt for a ceiling suspended storage space? This kind of space not only looks artistic but also will allow you a handy storage space without too much investment.

3.Shelves with a beautiful glossy touch

This kitchen is provided with shelves which when shut give an appearance of a beautiful wall panel with a glossy finish. Apart from that, the architects have also provided the space with a Z-shaped cabinet that is installed above the cooking counter.

4.Individual wall mounted cubicles

Apart from the usual above and below counter cabinets, this kitchen is provided with shelves that are individual wall mounted cubicles. Not only do these look very artistic but they also provide some valuable storage space for smaller equipment.

5.Space for a breakfast table

The kitchen is also provided with a neat breakfast table type of arrangement that is perfect to grab a quick bite in the morning.

6.Elegant corner shelves

These triangular corner shelves are perfect to keep a book or a jar of your favorite spice. The wooden finish of these shelves contrast excellently with the white colored large cabinets.

7.Floor mounted shelves

This kitchen is provided with a neat floor mounted shelf that provides adequate space for keeping cutlery and silverware that would be required for the dining table. Apart from that, the unit also acts as a nice space separater in cases of an open plan kitchen layout.

8.Shelves that cover the entire wall

The first thing that comes to our mind when we look at these shelves are that these look more like a wall design than merely a space for keeping objects. The wonderful collage type arrangement offers adequate volume of storage as well as higher flexibility for objects or varying size.

9.A minimalist setting

This kitchen with its sleek minimalist setting allows decent storage space above the cooking counter as well as below the kitchen island. We especially loved the precision with which the shutters fit in when they are in the closed position.
