Every woman over 50 needs just a bit more display area throughout the home, and especially the kitchen. Adding floating shelves in the kitchen is ideal for keeping spices handy, holding your favorite recipe books, stacking plates, or displaying decorative accents.

Floating shelves are an ideal addition to our home because they do not come with all the ghastly fixtures normally required. They appear to stick out of the wall and depending on the trim that you select, can appear to be rustic wooden beams.

Benefits for floating shelves

 To give your kitchen more warmth, you can opt for floating shelving. These shelves are thick and solid, which will settle your concerns about loading them with dishes. Darker grains in the wood coordinate with the trim work around our windows and doors.

Installing the floating shelves

There are many manufacturers that produce floating shelves. LivingBetter50 suggests that our women over 50 readerships support US factories and make sure that the products that they buy were made in the USA.

Once the mounting bar is installed, just attach the shelves to it. The shelves themselves are hollow boxes and the top of the box is what attaches to the mounting bar. You may want to drill pilot holes into the tops of the shelves because the wood is so hard. It may make it easier to hammer the nails into place.

Look to get a simple project that can make an impact on your home’s appearance. Floating shelves are a fast, easy DIY project. It doesn’t get any better than these decorative and useful mantel shelves.
