We are knee deep in our kitchen renovation and there are so. many. details! Some are very not fun, like how to work around the steel beam we just found. Others are REALLY fun, like which floating shelf style do I want to use?

I went to my favorite place to get inspiration and gathered some AMAZING ideas for floating shelves on Pinterest. Y'all are going to love these too, I know it! Sometimes I get super tired of decor trends, but floating shelves is one I can't get enough of.

The only issue is I cannot decide which direction I want to go in for the kitchen shelves. Industrial? Live edge? Metal brackets? So many creative options and unconventional touches has my brain churning up ideas!

Check out my 19 favorites (including some I have made for different rooms in our house) and get inspired. These tutorials will make it so easy for you to create your own!
