Oh, no what could I possibility do with all that additional storage space.. said no one ever! Chances are you like the rest of have some more photos, memorabilia or other items you wish you had a place to store or show off.
I have loved floating shelves, particularly when used in a slightly recessed section of the wall so that the shelves look like custom built in shelving. While a book case might be the easiest option, the look of 2-4 floating shelves over a line of matching cabinets is ever so chic. The cabinets are perfect to hide office supplies, children's toys, or if like me a collection of board games I have yet to find storage space for. In a pinch the row of cabinets can also serve as a place to put down a drink for a near by chair. To complete the look, fill the shelves with stacks of your favorite books, photographs or small treasured items to add visual interest.
To easily get the look head over to the land of Swedish meatballs, otherwise know as Ikea. 3 Akurum 24" wall cabinets will be the same length as well as several of the long version of the lack shelves.
