Backsplash Shelf: Dimensions? Material? Omit?
We are definitely getting there! Here's a recent picture of how this wall looks.
I am still toying with the idea of a narrow shelf mounted about 6" up, around 48" wide, and 6" deep. Stainless steel is one idea, glass is another, tiled or even decouppaged?
The cooktop is pulled forward 6" and I do not use the space in the back. I like the idea of being able to display something back there, slightly higher. Perhaps twin canisters of utensils, flowers, pretty olive oil bottles.
Here's a mock-up from a while back. What do you think? What else could I use to display items at different heights in your kitchen? Or should I give up the shelf idea altogether?
I've also linked to another thread, with suggestions from GWers on different shelves which fit these dimensions.
As always, thanks in advance.
