5. Contemporary style: open shelvesIf you prefer open shelving, you might be able to implement this idea at home. In this Toronto kitchen in Canada, the designer added long floating shelves in front of a row of three windows. The shelves are lined up with the windows’ horizontal muntins and painting the window trim black gave them a strong presence behind the shelves. Tip: Long shelves like this will require strong structural support – shelves will sag without proper reinforcement. Here, the wall contains structural steel supports to hold up the shelves. In new construction, this can be planned at the framing stage. If renovating, your designer and trades may need to work around existing plumbing and wiring inside the wall, so be sure to plan properly before construction begins.Tell usHave you incorporated windows into your cabinetry design?

15. Forgo those bulky cabinets The kitchen is fertile ground for unique shelving since there’s simply so much that needs to be stored there. We’re seeing more and more people eschew upper cabinets in favour of long shelving, and while it may prove to be a trend that fades like any other, it still feels fresh and unexpected to see shelves running across kitchen windows.See more open kitchen shelving

Maybe a good idea for keeping things light but adding storage in a limited space.
