Solid wood? In an earlier comment you said they were MDF. I'm confused. Which are they?Thanks!

Often on painted cabinetry it's better to use MDF rather than solid wood. Solid wood expands and contracts with temperature and moisture more than MDF. This is not an issue with stained or naturally finished wood, but if painted, it can cause the paint to crack.

Why MDF? The thickness is for the effect, right?

It's Medium Density Fiberboard, it's used for strength and paints very nicely.
The thickness is the look the home owner wanted.

The open shelves in this kitchen were custom built for the space. They were constructed from wooden boards with brackets added and painted.

I have been looking for shelves like this but can't find anyone who sell them. If anyone knows please share. I want to actually put heavy plates on them, so about 12" deep and securely attached.

They are just white, it's the creamy color of the cabinets that makes them look blueish in the photo.

The first shelf is more than likely standard upper cabinet height off the counter top of 18" and then probably 12-14" apart from their up.

I am not finding the exact information on the wood floors in this home as it was completed some time ago. I do believe they are a stained white oak.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to Kitchen Workbook: 8 Elements of a Cottage Kitchen
2. Open shelving. Installed in place of traditional upper cabinetry, open shelving recalls the days when kitchens were more utilitarian than decorative. Not only was cabinetry expensive, but open shelves allowed cooks to retrieve dishes and tools quickly. Today open shelves are as much about aesthetics as about practicality: Their openness helps make a space feel larger, and they often house accessories in addition to kitchen implements. You don't have to be obsessively neat and organized for open shelving to look attractive, but you'll want to make an effort not to let clutter build. Keeping dishware to a single color, as shown here, creates a striking effect.
Laura Gaskill added this to Outfit a Cottage-Style Remodel, Top to Bottom
Schoolhouse-inspired lights, butcher block, wood floors and simple cabinetry, along with some open shelving, are key to the cottage kitchen.

What Houzzers are commenting on:

Ed Karasek added this to Kitchen
Cabinet color--against white tile
Dusty Gal added this to Open Shelves
Open shelving in the kitchen. Either wood or white. I love these.

I like the open shelving wrapped around the corner
