40 Suspended Shelves Ideas For Kitchens
What Are Suspended Shelves?
Hanging shelves, like the name suggests, are designed to hang. Ditching the traditional brackets, these shelves usually feature rope or chain hangings, which can either be fixed to the wall or hung from the ceiling to create a standout suspended look.
Suspended shelving is a far more contemporary look than traditional closed upper cabinetry. They can blend well with transitional kitchens as long as the remaining elements are classic. As well as being immensely handy for storage, hanging shelves are an effortless way to add a touch of industrial glamour to your décor.

Why Choose Suspended Shelves?
Bold, functional and effortlessly beautiful, ceiling mounted shelves capture the true essence of Nordic interior design. Going beyond traditional storage units, these shelves aren’t just space savers – they’re a standout feature of your room’s décor.
Unlike fixed shelving, hanging shelves can be fitted just about anywhere – whether that’s mounted to a wall or suspended from a ceiling. They’re also less bulky than traditional shelving, giving you a sleek, stylish way to display your books, plants, tools, lighting, ornaments, and anything else you can think of.
Fixed shelving can be a handy storage solution, but it can only go so far. With the freedom to be suspended from the ceiling, hanging shelves take full advantage of any unused space – leaving the walls free for tall furniture, cabinets, plant holders, and all your favorite prints. Suspended shelves and bar gantries are also incredibly easy to access – so no more standing on chairs to hunt for those things you shoved to the very back.

How To Style Suspended Shelves?
When your shelves look this good, it’s worth having a think about how exactly you’re going to style them. Try curating your hanging shelves in a way that works for your space – whether that’s the kitchen, the hallway, your garage, or somewhere else entirely.
One easy way to keep your shelves looking aesthetically pleasing is to incorporate a blend of textures. Things like elegant stoneware can contrast beautifully with more rustic wooden utensils.
Another thing to think about when styling your ceiling suspended shelves is mixing up practical and decorative pieces. Experiment by placing useful items, like books and kitchenware, alongside things like trailing plants, ornaments and artwork.
