The other day I was busy cutting some stuff in the kitchen, and I just noticed a space above my worktop and felt the need to have shelving there for my blender and small orange juicer. I use them quite often, and I was getting tired of having to un-tuck them from the floor cabinets each time I wanted to use – and that was at least once a day. A singular horizontal shelf came to mind, as it’s simple design keeps the cost low, plus, I could seize the opportunity of introducing similar at other parts of the kitchen needing extra storage.

I also love the fact that their use is versatile and adaptable, as you can relocate them to any other space in the house in case you no longer need them in the kitchen. If there is indeed the possibility of relocating your shelf, use a width that will easily fit into possible spaces in other parts of your home so you don’t have to resize. Here are some shelving ideas to consider.

SIMPLE AND COST SAVING SHELVING SOLUTIONS

Whether you are having them done by a carpenter or you are buying from a furniture store, they shouldn’t cost you much as they are less technical.

Rather than have the shelf floating, you can have it supported with braces. The brace could be the same material as the shelf itself, metallic, or any other material of your finding and choice. Where you get them from, their cost and their technicality will affect the cost of the shelf in the long run, so choose wisely.

~AT THE WINDOW~

 Aside from a space on the wall, you can put them against an uncovered window, especially a fixed one and still have daylight enter in. The items you place on the shelf filters the light coming in and creates more privacy in your kitchen with their little obstructions. Its also a perfect place for little potted plants.

~TAKING IT UP A NOTCH~

You can take a simple shelving up a notch with several included elements depending on your preferences. These usually cost more because of the extra technicalities, your choice of material and size of the project. Sometimes, they don’t, but are just different from the simple horizontal shelves with or without braces.
