For your upcoming kitchen remodelling project, we have a fantastic recommendation if you're searching for something extremely modern and contemporary. Have you ever thought about using floating cabinets and shelves?

Despite being sufficiently thick, floating shelves appear to hover in the air, giving the impression that they are lightweight. A small kitchen would benefit greatly from such an idea because heavy cabinets and closed storage units will make the space appear much tighter, whereas floating shelves will open it up.

Popularity of Floating Shelf UK?

Popularity of Floating Shelf UK

Floating shelves are popular among UK households and combine well with a modern, minimalist interior design. Since a few years ago, the idea of floating kitchens as a component of a technologically advanced designer kitchen has gained popularity. Floating shelves can drastically improve the aesthetic of your kitchen if it is large enough to accommodate an island. The pedestals still support the units, but by concealing them in the centre so that it is hidden from view, the pedestals give the impression that they are floating. By using lighting strategically, you may further enhance the appearance and make your kitchen island appear like it is floating.

What is a Floating Kitchen?

what is a floating kitchen

When kitchen cabinets are wall mounted or affixed to the wall instead of mounted on legs or a sub-base, it gives the impression that they are drifting off the floor. This is referred to as a floating kitchen. It's not sorcery, but it should've been, right? Since the base cabinets don't extend to the floor, a floating kitchen won't have a plinth or toe kick. Instead, a larger section of empty floor area will be present below, creating the impression of a larger, more expansive room.

Check out these stones to use for your floating kitchen ideas.

Are Floating Cabinets Strong?

Depending on where you hang it and how wide it is, your floating shelf can support a certain amount of weight. The strongest kitchen shelves can support up to 100 pounds, while the ones with the weakest weight capacities can only support 25 pounds.

Limitations of Floating Shelves

The possible loss of cabinet storage space is one of the main drawbacks of having a floating kitchen. You will lose between 5 to 15 cm of storage space because the shelves themselves are frequently shorter than a typical kitchen base cabinet. The kitchen manufacturer and the way they install their floating cabinets will determine the precise dimension of the suspended kitchen cabinets and how much area you may compromise.
