Floating Shelves for a Modern & Airy Kitchen Design
At CliqStudios, we see a growing interest in the light and airy, almost magical effect of floating shelves in an kitchen design. Uninterrupted by brackets or sidewalls, the floating shelf has a strong horizontal line, an element associated with restfulness and balance.
Used to store and display everyday items, the shelves represent the essence of minimalist function. An important element in a modern kitchen, the shelves, paired with slab door cabinets, will typically be installed on a contrasting wall.
In the modern kitchen pictured above, floating shelves are finished in a gray paint that matches the slab door cabinets and complements the stainless hearth.
But floating shelves are not restricted to modern interiors. Our designers often use a wall of floating cabinets as a light, contemporary feature in a transitional or traditional kitchen. The shelves create a display space for art, dishware or other items without competing with those items for attention.
CliqStudios now offers floating shelves in paints and stains to match all CliqStudios cabinet finishes.
