Native WoodsContemporary Hall, Los Angeles
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Round a corner. Continue those floating shelves right around a corner for a sleek, modern look. This treatment does require extra room — you wouldn’t want to bump into that sharp corner! Also be aware that any floating shelves that are especially heavy or uniquely shaped are best handled by pros.
A long hallway connects the kids' bedrooms, parents' office and gym to this small playroom. Floating oak shelves finished in a warm gray driftwood stain extend down the hallway and wrap around into the room. "The hallway was quite long, and the room at the end was on the small side, so connecting it with the shelves borrowed a little space from the hall," Clarke explains. He also used one of the shelves as a side table next to the sofa. "The lack of a bunch of small end tables simplified the space and made it less visually cluttered," he says.
