Need help with shelving
Need to fiqure out what to do with this area for shelving.
Original plan was for two floating shelves. The bottom one would be just above the tile and hold the microwave (ge spacesaver). A 2nd shelf somewhere above to hold cookbooks, etc.
A true floating shelf seems to be an issue as we did not plan for this before the dry wall. So I'm looking of ideas and options. Not just for the function of the shelves but the style.
At this point I really don't care if the support is seen, just that it looks good. It can't however be drilled into the tile. The shelf could be slightly above the tile line. Also want to be budget friendly.
Attached is a thread I had regarding support.
Here is one support idea I found.
Dh has suggested L brackets flipped so that one part of the L goes up instead of down. He also said we could take one or more of our old cabinets and retrofit them. It would then be easy to attach to the wall. Basically door less cabinets.
Here are some of the elements of my kitchen.
Also the color the the shelves..what should they be? Would 2 black shelves take away from the black pencil line? White as the window trim etc. is white? I thought of stainless but very pricy. Stainless contact paper is costly too but if it works better.
Really need some inspiration and new eyes to look at this. So please tell/show me what you would do and why.
