Space miracle in the kitchen - wall shelves to suit your needs
Whether spices, decoration or even large electrical appliances, wall shelves in the kitchen are a must to either store these items carefully or present them stylishly. At Metallbude you can find out why wall shelves are a good choice in the kitchen, what you should pay attention to, which kitchen shelves are available and how to combine them correctly.
That's why a wall shelf is indispensable in your kitchen
Meals are prepared and eaten in the kitchen. A wall shelf is the right piece of furniture to equip it in terms of functionality and design, because:
- Wall shelves offer plenty of space without taking up too much space and create a homely ambience.
- Wall shelves come in numerous colours, shapes and materials, so you will find the wall shelf that fits your kitchen style.
- Wall shelves are efficient because they can be placed in places that would be too small for kitchen cabinets, making full use of kitchen space.
- Things that are stowed away on wall shelves are always within reach.
- Wall shelves are diverse. From spice racks to decorative shelves to wine racks for the wall, everything is possible.
You should pay attention to this with your wall shelf for the kitchen
Before you decide on a kitchen shelf, you should think about what should have space on your shelf and what items will be placed on it. Caution: Do not place too many and not too heavy things on your wall shelf so as not to burden it too much. Of course, you should also take into account the available space in your kitchen. For high stability, you should use suitable screws and dowels during assembly. A spirit level will help you mount the shelf straight on the wall. Be careful not to mount your wall shelf too close to hot appliances such as the stove. The specified load capacity of the wall shelf must not be exceeded. Think beforehand whether you only want to store light spices or heavy electrical appliances and plates on the shelf. Because your wall shelf is food-related, it should be easy to clean. Wall shelves made of black metal are suitable for this, for example, because the material is easy to care for. Fat splashes and water drops cannot harm it.
These types of wall shelves make sense in your kitchen
Wall shelves are available in different designs and serve different purposes. Depending on the space and needs, different types of wall shelves can be used in the kitchen:
- Spice racks: Use a smaller shelf that doesn't necessarily have to have a high load capacity. When it comes to spice racks, functionality is paramount. A device is often installed on the shelf to hold the spices in place.
- Hanging shelves and free-standing shelves: Admittedly - hanging and free-standing shelves are not directly wall shelves, but they can still be attached to the wall. Hanging shelves often have hooks on which pot holders or cups can be hung. Standing shelves often offer a lot of space, but they take up additional floor space.
- Open wall shelves: keyword: decoration! Everything that is placed on the shelf is also seen. Decorative elements such as beautiful glasses, cups and plates or even plants and books are the right choice.
- Corner shelves: Corner shelves are real space savers in the kitchen and are particularly useful when space is limited. They fill small niches and conjure up additional storage space.
- Wine racks: decorative and chic! Shelves in which you store wine, such as the VINIA wine rack from Metallbude, can become real eye-catchers.
