Monday Inspiration | Shelves on the Kitchen Counter

Monday, October 13, 2014

I recently had a client ask about adding storage to their new kitchen without adding more cabinets. The first thing that came to mind were the images below.  I really love anything that is both functional and aesthetically attractive and this solution is both!

I've found a couple of options that might work on a kitchen counter depending on the amount of space you have.

If you like the open shelf look, but don't want to add more holes to your walls, this might be a great option for you.  


  1. What a great idea! With a kitchen reno on the horizon, this would be a fun, unexpected option - thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I agree ladies! Kudos to the first one who came up with this fabulous idea!

  3. I totally love this look. I'd do in a heartbeat if I had the space.

  4. I love this look too and I think the shelving you found is perfect!! If your client does decide to do this, I would love to see the before and after!!

  5. I've been noticing the "no upper cabinets" trend lately, and I love it! I don't know if I'd dare do it, but the shelves are a pretty compromise. Great pieces!
