Hi Jeff - we are looking at floating shelves for a bar area to hold glasses, barware and wine/liquor. I am concerned about how wide I can make the shelves and subsequently how much weight they can hold. Any suggestions? Thanks!

These were mounted on the wall to metal rods drilled directly in to the studs. Each shelf had three rods (or four - don't remember precisely) and the shelves are 8 feet long. The shelves were slid on to the rods in to holes bored in the rear of the shelf. They are very sturdy. Our shelves are only 10 inches deep - but they could have been deeper. I chose ten so you wouldn't hit your head on them when leaning over the sink. Hope that helps.

What is the wall color in the kitchen? Did you use the same color throughout the whole house? It's beautiful.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Do: Focus on one or two materials. Wood, ceramics, glass, metal — too many materials in one arrangement can look cluttered and unfocused. Stick with mainly one or two for a sleek, chic look.Don't: Set out glass if you live in earthquake country! If you live in California or another region where earthquakes can be an issue, lots of glass on open shelving can be a recipe for disaster. Keep your glassware behind closed cabinet doors, preferably ones with magnets or another safety system that will prevent the doors from flying open in an earthquake. On open shelves consider installing a small lip to keep items in place during small quakes.

This kind of shelving could be hung on the space across from the kitchen...over another cabinet unit that would hold things. That cabinet would have doors to look neat. The shelving could hold your look light and sparkly and easy to get to. This would allow the other cabinets in kitchen to hold your beautiful white plates. You could also add a mirrored back wall to the open shelving to give you more reflective light and some sparkle. The mirror could be clear or smoked so that it is a deeper tone. DependIng on the look you like.
