@lexi Pixel Mendoza this made me think of you! Simple Inexpensive Shelves Instead of Built-in makes this space look wider and more balanced!- Great for the Carlyle House... put the T.v. on an arm so you can face it in a diff. direction!
Open-Shelf Storage Solution - Boost storage and display space in a kitchen by capping off a run of cabinets with open shelves. These shelves face the adjoining breakfast room and offer a convenient spot for storing cookbooks. The shelf unit also rises slightly above the counter surface to help hide clutter.
