Inspire: Kitchen Shiplap and Floating Shelving, Client Project

When I met with a client this past week, our discussion over a tile backsplash morphed into kitchen shiplap walls and floating shelving! She mentioned that painting her existing cabinets, which are currently white, is a possibility in the future as well as updating the kitchen door hardware and ultimately island and countertop. Her long-term goal is a slow kitchen transformation, strategically planned and budgeted, but starting with the backsplash. She is speaking my language......planning and budgeting!

Leaving the project, I was tasked with researching kitchen shiplap and shelving options.

Here Are My Ten Favorite Kitchen Shiplap and Floating Shelving Inspiration Pictures:

1. I really like to see how designs work the corners, to carry over or stick with one wall!

2. I typically opt for stained shelving, as seen in these pictures:

3. When talking with our client, we discussed using external exposed hardware versus invisible, floating shelving.

4. Forget the shelving, how about the brass it!

5. I'm paying close attention to what happens where the ceiling meets the wall: no crown, just simplicity!

6. Again, loving how the stained shelves contrast against the white shiplap.

8. You can't go wrong with the classic black on white!
