Plank shelves are so simple yet very efficient spacewise, especially in a tight office that may double as a guest room. The minimal hardware supporting these gives them the look of floating shelves.
Here's another staggered example, but the slim vertical components don't really allow for book storage. The unit itself becomes the showpiece in this white-on-white modern bedroom.
And now to show you what's on the boards for the Venice beach home: In the kitchen, a long expanse of open shelving is set upon subway tile. There are barely any upper cabinets in this large kitchen. Just salvaged wood shelves that are 3, 4 and 5 feet long above the lower cabinets.
In the den, a wall-to-wall shelf unit with closed storage surrounds a flat-screen TV and the existing window. The client insisted on a random series of openings to keep things interesting.
In the master bedroom, a wall-to-wall shelf unit will have randomly sized openings. This design includes shelves, a window, a desk and closed storage boxes that encase a flat-screen TV. As if that doesn't sound complicated enough, the frame will be made of a welded steel open grid. A little crazy, a little cool, huh?
