A curated kitchen shelf doesn’t just add to the overall appeal of your cooking area, it can also motivate you to keep the space clean and organized all the time. Aside from regularly checking your cabinets for expired food, you also need to commit to maintaining picture-perfect shelves. Whether you’re into colorful setups or rustic-inspired vignettes, a lovely shelf can work as a focal point in the kitchen. To inspire you to get started, we’ve collated these pegs from Instagram:

Rustic-industrial

Vintage Hardware Manila and @dekko.ph on Instagram can customize shelves according to your needs. If you only have a compact cooking nook to work with, settle for wall-mounted wooden planks supported by metal brackets. Make it IG-worthy by displaying cups and bowls with prints (you can purchase new ones at Habitat) or follow an earthy theme by putting together dinnerware and décor in brown, taupe, and moss green.

Farmhouse-inspired

For something cozier and brighter, pick light-colored, distressed wooden shelves. Complete the country meets farmhouse aesthetic by displaying vintage décor, brass pieces, and accessories in white. Hints of green such as mini potted plants and woven essentials can add warmth to your setup as well.

Simple yet contemporary

If you’re the type who keeps ingredients and essentials inside drawers and cabinets, chances are, your shelves are for decorating purposes only. Keep it simple yet classy with minimalist framed prints, sleek bottles, and posh containers.

Fine and Scandi

Many homeowners experiment with the Scandinavian-inspired aesthetic because it can make an area look airy and spacious, without losing the cozy appeal. Showcase the same look and feel when sprucing up your shelves by opting for wooden planks in a natural finish and sticking to an all-white ensemble. Break the monotony and keep it from being too plain by displaying wooden chopping boards and knickknacks in the same finish as your shelves.

Sleek and modern

Want to use dark-colored shelves but you're not a fan of the industrial style? You can always go for the sleek and modern look. To ace this, invest in wall-mounted lighting pieces in black or brass. Decorate the shelves with dinnerware in black and white, then polish it with a stack of books.

Vintage

Got only a corner to work with? Don’t fret! Turn it into a classic, posh setup by displaying tall glasses, jars, and old books. Vintage-inspired knickknacks in an aged bronze finish can help you pull off this look, too. Shop at Vintage Hardware Manila for must-haves.

Sweet and colorful

Many homeowners have a ton of dinnerware in white and neutral colors. If you plan on displaying only these, you might end up with a lackluster shelf. Keep this from happening by injecting pops of sweet hues into the final look. Pick ramekins, mugs, and plates in pastels (light blue, pink, and yellow) to spice up your shelves.

Minimalist

Those who have a huge cooking area have the freedom of installing wall-mounted shelves that cover the width of the wall. If you’re on the same boat, keep it chic and minimalist as possible to avoid a cluttered look. The last thing you want is to have shelves turned into eyesores. Achieve the minimalist look by displaying books, bowls of fruits, and chosen dinnerware with enough space in between—remember, you have a spacious shelf at your disposal. The advantage? You can easily spot if something’s missing or amiss on your shelves.
