Creating proper storage in your kitchen is essential so that you can keep it well organised. But it is not important that your storage units should look dull and colourless just because they are not going to be seen by your guests. 

If you are looking for ways to incorporate designer shelves in your kitchen then here are 18 creative options that you can use.

1. Wall mounted shelves

These wall mounted shelves are the perfect option for creating a storage unit as well as making a blank wall look beautiful.

2. Glass shelves

A material that you can use to make your shelves look amazing is glass. This will also make sure that your storage unit is lightweight.

3. Hanging metal shelves

It is not important that you have to create a shelf on the ground or on the wall. Rather you can use a similar layout to build a hanging storage unit.

4. Stainless steel shelves

Stainless steel can also prove to be an ideal option for creating your kitchen shelves as it will give your kitchen a modern look.

5. Shelves with hooks

Another excellent way of creating storage in your kitchen is by combining shelves with hooks. This way you will be able to store containers as well as mugs in the same location.

6. Open cabinets

Creating a wall of open cabinets is also ideal if you are looking to store all your crockery and cutlery in one place.

7. Parallel wooden shelves

Instead of creating two long shelves in your kitchen you can also opt for such long and short parallel wooden shelving option.

8. Below the counter shelves

If you have enough space below your kitchen counter then utilising it to install similar looking open shelves is highly recommended.

9. Cylindrical shelves and cabinets

If you like to store all your cooking essential near your gas range then installing such small open shelves is advised.

14. Natural wood storage

To give your kitchen a natural touch opting for neutral colour wood to create the cabinets is worth a shot. You can simply polish to wood and use it without having to paint the unit.

15. Glass and wood cabinets

Creating shelves especially for placing your crockery is an excellent way of storing all your dinnerware. These units can also have specific sections for glassware, plates, tea and coffee sets.

17. Counter side shelves

The side walls of your counters are usually left empty but by creating a similar looking shelving option you will be able to use it in a much better way.

18. Ceiling shelves
