8 diy acrylic shelves and caddies for a modern feel cover

I totally love modern and minimalist decor, that’s why I’m going to inspire you with more and more DIYs that bring a contemporary feel to your home. Today we are discussing acrylic shelves, holders and caddies that can be used throughout your home and give it a bold and edgy touch. Such items look ethereal and seem to be floating in the air – what a great idea for a modern space!

Shelves

This bathroom shelf is a great idea to add an airy feel to your space: it’s partly sheer and seems to be disappearing in the air, isn’t that what we need for a small space? The piece is made of clear acryl, wooden shelves and a metal towel holder, it will easily fit many spaces and styles and stably accommodate a lot of things. It’s a perfect item for a contemporary bathroom!

If you have a lot of potted plants and no windowsill or planning to make a whole veggie and herb garden, this craft is exactly what you need! These are window shelves made of clear acryl, which is a great advantage: this material won’t prevent natural light coming from the window enter the room. They look very lightweight and airy though are stable and comfy.

Here’s another project with clear acrylic window shelves but it’s easier than the previous one because here you’ll find out how to attach ready shelves to the window. The shelves are thin and all-clear, yet they hold all the pots and other items you may place in a comfy way. You may also add a glitter touch or washi tape to the edge of the shelves.

Add a contemporary feel to your space with a clear acrylic shelf and some plywood that will comprise a comfy shelf. The sides of the shelving unit are made of acryl, and the shelves are laminate ones painted white, which makes this shelf a universal item for many spaces in all colors and shades.

These chic lucite shelves are great for many spaces, and they are spruced up with gold washi tape on the edges and they are hung on ropes to give them a beach feel. This way the shelving unit doesn’t look that airy though it brings a glam touch with gold tape and fits a coastal or rustic space.

Caddies

Get a list of clear acryl and some wood and make a cool modern caddy for your bathroom! This little piece can hold shampoos, soaps, towels and other stuff you need. The main advantage of such a caddy is that it will be almost invisible and can fit most of spaces, in various colors and of various shades.

An armrest caddy is a popular piece to get more comfort for your living room and to place a drink with comfort – no side table needed! Such an acrylic caddy is a perfect piece for a modern space though it will easily fit many others, too. It can hold not only a drink or a gadget but also some books and magazines in the compartment down there.

This bathroom tray or caddy is made of clear acryl and PVC window molding plus brass handles. Such a tray can be used in various spaces besides a bathroom, too: a living room, a home office, a kitchen or any other, it’s 100% universal. I love the idea to add elegant brass handles to the tray, which make it more glam and refined.
