Artisan Shelves in a Handmade Kitchen

Within a kitchen, artisan shelves can often become an overlooked feature where many people forget about this handy design. They have started to become an integral part of many kitchens such as walk-in pantries and boot and utility rooms. They fill the space with wooden elements and can be hand-painted in the colour of your choice to match your kitchen décor and other furniture. They blend in well and keep the space well balanced providing a useful storage spot too.

We have had many clients opt for this type of shelf in their new kitchen projects to either house everyday essentials or a sentimental ornament. In this blog, we will show you how we have built them into many of our client’s kitchens.

An artisan shelf is normally used for glassware and tableware that’s close to the cooking areas. Using these in a walk-in pantry displays dry ingredients that can be placed in Kilner jars for a neat and tidy shelf.

Another room where artisan shelves can be used for in utility rooms. You can keep the laundry, baskets and other household items neat, tidy and also out of reach from little ones.

They are also a great way of adding a decorative statement to the kitchen by being the perfect spot to show off a beautiful ornament or a collection of vases.

In the project in Hatfield Broad Oak, a beautiful artisan shelf sits above the sink area showcasing a selection of decorative vases and glasses all in a row. This shelf is hand-painted in the same colour as the main kitchen – French Grey Mid by Little Greene. It’s a lovely little place that sits below a large roof lantern that shines so much natural light through.

This property in Hutton is lucky enough to have a room off from the main kitchen that is the ultimate walk-in pantry. It’s filled with artisan shelves that flow around the room at different heights to store the dry ingredients neat and tidy. It’s big enough that many tasks can be performed by the whole family. With enough room and to keep them out of the main kitchen the microwave and toaster have been given a home in here.

The shelves are fully stocked and there is even extra stock that has been bought and arranged in an orderly fashion to make it quick and easy for our client to select that ingredient when running out.

In this modern and delightful kitchen, we created in Peterborough, bespoke artisan shelves sit neatly above the cooking area either side. They have been finished with wooden pegs below to be the perfect spot for sieves and colanders for our client to reach quickly and easily. The shelf above is the ideal place to showcase decorative accessories.
