This is an angle of the kitchen that you’ve never seen. There’s clearly a reason for that: even after our kitchen makeover, this side remained decidedly blah with that huge white wall o’ nothing and the appliance pile-up in the corner. Add to that the fact that since we replaced the old step bookcase with the entertainment unit in the lounge oh, maybe eight months ago, our cookbooks had been sitting in a pile on the floor.

(That is not what I call a blog-worthy scene.)

A floating shelf was the perfect thing to break up the wall and add much-needed storage. We also mounted the microwave on the wall to free up bench space.

My cookbooks now have a home and we can enjoy looking at some of our cute kitchenware all the time.
