For the Den

A gallery wall of shelving makes for a decorative and eclectic backdrop in any room. A mix of picture-ledge and floating shelves, this area is the perfect spot to highlight special family photos, figurines and your most-loved books.

For the Bathroom Vanity

For a fresh, modern take on a classic bathroom, consider replacing that boring vanity with floating shelves. Thick, golden wood adds warm contrast against white shiplap for a simple-yet-stylish vanity alternative.

For the Home Office

Against this home office's dark walls, rich-brown wooden floating shelves are a warm, inviting contrast. Resting on the shelves, artwork is intermixed with books, sculptures and houseplants, for a look that's casual and compelling.

For the Laundry Room

Two floating shelves add much needed storage space in this home’s laundry room. The wood’s natural color pops against a smooth, gray backsplash.

For the Hallway

Think outside of the traditional wooden shelves and opt for trendy, mismatched shelving instead. Floating, gold shelves add a trendy pizzazz to the hallway, while also acting as the perfect home for small house plants.

For the Kitchen

Say goodbye to closed-off cabinets and hello to open and airy floating shelves in the kitchen.

For the Family Room

Two extra-long, floating shelves work overtime in this coastal-themed living room. These eye-catching shelves bring beautiful design and house colorful, artfully-displayed books.

For the Tween’s Room

Spruce up those plain, white floating shelves by accenting them with brass hardware. Here, the popular metal blends perfectly with the fun and youthful decor in this tween’s bedroom.

For the Bathroom

The key to making any room or space feel larger is to incorporate bright accents throughout. Here, light-wood shelving and a matching vanity, make the bathroom seem much larger against handsome, black walls.

For the Nursery

Pretty wood floating shelves let colorful kids' books become part of the decor. Hang them low so they're easy for little hands to reach.

For the Bar Area

Looking to incorporate rustic design into your space but don’t want to overdo it? Natural-wood floating shelves add farmhouse-inspired style to the bar area for a simple-yet-chic touch.

For the Coffee Nook

A cozy coffee nook gets major storage space from an open-shelving, wooden cabinet below and matching floating shelves above. Featured on Fixer Upper, the two rich-hued shelves provide ample space for mugs, books and house plants.

For the Master Bedroom

Breezy white canopy bed curtains, white floating shelves and washed out wood floors enhance the open, airy feel of the space. The floating shelves flank either side of the fireplace in this master bedroom and create a space to stylishly display keepsakes.

For the Butler's Pantry

Tucked behind the chic, family-friendly kitchen is an open butler's pantry. Floating shelves are perfect for keeping everyday dishes handy, and cool gray cabinets provide much-needed storage.

For the Living Room

White floating bookshelves with color coordinating book organization, beautifully decorate the brown wall in this living room.

For the Sitting Room

The back of this sitting room's handsome floating built-in shelving is mirrored, which makes the area feel more open and reflects the striking artwork.

For the Library

In the living room, open shelving provides plenty of display space for the family's library and globe collection.

For the Dining Room

A trio of arched niches feature a black and white patterned wallpaper with floating shelves to display plants and personal treasures.

For the Mudroom

It’s true — a mudroom is all about storage, storage and more storage. In this entryway, crate-like shelves allow for multiple storage options — on top, inside and even on the bottom with the addition of hooks. Just a couple of these in the mudroom can go a long way for functionality.
