Poll: Where to place floating shelves
The bricks are about 3.5"h, with grout, about 4".
DH said whatever.
He actually said just make sure that whatever you plan to put on them fits. But what I was planning to put on them evidently isn't what he was planning to put on them. I was thinking the lower one for everyday dishes (which are very nice) and the upper one for more pretty bowls/casseroles. All he envisions is these three pretty casseroles (which we didn't even have when the reno started, so I don't know what his plan was at that time). I've looked at the bookshelves I've been using for things during the reno and I think at least 10" between shelves, but 12" is better, so that's 3 bricks. Or in this case, 2 full bricks and 2 half bricks. If you think I should put one in the lowest position and one in the highest position, let me know. We'll call that C.
And I think I'm leaning towards A now that I've lived in the kitchen for a bit with no shelves. I'm worried that the shelves will feel 'imposing' above the counter. I think the higher position will lessen that.
(please ignore the fact that I can't draw straight lines in photobucket)
