Kitchen Hardware

Sometimes it just takes a few small things to make a real impact.  Consider this kitchen makeover that was featured on Censational Girl.

This style of bracket creates truly functional shelves in this galley kitchen.  Here they are topped with a stone shelf making a durable and easy to clean surface above the stove area.  The same effect could be achieved with many other materials such as reclaimed or distressed wood, just make sure that the surface suits your application.  What a great look that can be added to many kitchens.  

Here's a great image from Canada's own House and Home featuring the same style of bracket used with a wooden shelf over the white subway tiled backsplash.  The upper cupboards have been completely removed.  In their place, the open kitchen shelves visually expand space and provide handy storage for everyday items.  

It creates a functional and informal look that would suit many homes and cottages.

And now for the lux treatment...stainless steel.

The stainless steel surface, sleek microwave oven, and unique corner design means that this area of the kitchen will be aesthetically pleasing and functional for years to come.
