Open wood shelves made from simple material. Money is not an object when kitchen remodels are the project. However, you can hardly allocate any money for wood shelves and save big money for appliances and plumbing. Be willing to take bold chances with color and with unconventional materials when building your own shelves.
Consider what you really need kitchen shelves to keep. Downsize your stuff and you may find that you need less space. Inventory kitchen equipment and accessories that you actually use on a daily basis and ignore the rest. Use porcelain hutches or high entertainment districts as the primary focus of your kitchen remodel. Make a bold message with a big piece and have the rest of the kitchen cabinets work in to design. Use the kitchen cabinets for the drawers in the new kitchen you design.
Paint kitchen cabinets strong colors, both inside and out. Add cutlery, cooking utensils, plastic covers, potholders and what fits in the drawers. Paint archive cabinets. Build a wooden frame under the cabinets to bring them up to 36 inches in height. Add a tray top, a laminate board or make a faux finisher top with scrap timber from wooden pallets. Secure open bookshelves on the walls with L brackets for upper cabinets. String a series of high voltage wires, chain or curtain rods on the walls. Make an overhead pot rack with a part of the wrought iron fence screwed to the ceiling using the brackets
