Built in Shelving
shelving matches the flooring...the light birch contrasts nicely with the white walls and creates a light airy feel to the room.
dark shelving contrasts well within this space.
white walls and white shelving contrasts beautifully with the wood floors.
The recessed shelves framed with similar wood to the floors creates a unique look.
Contrast of the dark shelves with the white walls.
Simply closing the top of the shelves with dry wall creates a great looking built-in cubby hole shelving unit.
Floating cupboard on the bottom is great for concealing unsightly objects with open shelving above for display.
wrap-around shelving creates an interesting effect.
concealment at it's finest. Note the hidden PVR on the left.
I like the wooden back-drop to these shelves.
Frame the edges and the shelves in the same wood may work in my space...but it would reduce the shelf space.
