Kitchen Bookshelf Ideas

Bookshelves are very versatile when it comes to incorporating them into your kitchen cabinetry. Designing open shelves at the end of your island is a perfect way to take advantage of unused, awkward space. Open shelving adds character to a kitchen because not only does it provide a bookshelf area, but also an area to show off knick-knacks or collectables. The shelving can also be incorporated into the cabinetry area of your kitchen. If you have collectables or important family cookbooks that you don’t want to be accessible to children, putting them at a higher point may be the choice for you!

Kitchen Bookshelf Ideas for your Kitchen Island by Kountry Kraft Cabinetry

There is a variety of kitchen bookshelf ideas to incorporate into your kitchen. Even if you don’t have a random pile of books, a kitchen bookshelf can hold anything! Some people are inspired by the way people display their kitchen items, and a kitchen bookshelf is such a unique and tidy way to do so. Bookshelves can also be accompanied by baskets or storage bins. A plain white kitchen is sometimes too “simple” and a bookshelf is the perfect way to add more personality to your space. View the below kitchen bookshelf ideas we have created for our customers.

A true must have of a 1920’s kitchen was the hoosier cabinet. The idea built behind this popular cabinet was that a worker is only as efficient as her workplace. This cabinet was so much more than just a storage cabinet, it included storage, appliances and much more!

What Does “Hoosier” Mean?

The word Hoosier has been tied to the state of Indiana for over 150 years. There are several theories about its origin, one of them involves people yelling “who’s there?” across the river and the other is of a man who lost his ear in a bar fight and someone unfortunately picked it up and asked, “whos ear?” Both circumstances sound similar to the term “Hoosier”.

the hoosier cabinet was a true must have in the 1920's

So, what does the term have to do with the Hoosier cabinet? The cabinet got its name because most of them were made in Indiana. The first Hoosier cabinets appeared in 1898, created by a furniture company called Sellers, in New Castle, Indiana. Popularity of the cabinet grew up until the late 1940’s when the records for the cabinets became scarce.

What Is in a Hoosier Cabinet?

You may be thinking that this was just an average cupboard, but back in the 1920’s, this was much more. This cabinet had storage for staples like flour, sugar and spices as well as workable parts like flour sifters, meat grinders, spice carousels, grocery list wheel, nutritional charts and cookbook holders. The Hoosier cabinet was made to speed up meal delivery by having everything you need in one place.

This modern Hoosier cabinet was designed by PKsurroundings. The modern storage cabinet includes shelves for organizing jars, spices and staple products. There is also a built-in prep sink that includes a garbage disposal. Outlets are incorporated on the walls for small appliances like a blender or electric mixer. The cabinet area provides a sense of separation from the rest of the kitchen, allowing multiple chefs to be cooking and prepping at the same time! Even though the storage space is beautiful to look at, it is all hidden behind custom sliding cabinet doors by Kountry Kraft.

Mixing kitchen cabinet styles and finishes is common in today’s home. Many people are hesitant when it comes to redoing their cabinetry because of it not matching the rest of the house. Many believe that if they redo their cabinets in one room, they must redo them everywhere. This isn’t necessarily true. A house has one style; however, every room can uniquely reflect that style. Different colored cabinetry is common throughout a house, primarily because each room is going to have its own color scheme. Cabinetry doesn’t always have to match; there are many ways to meld different colors and styles together.

Most homes have a consistent trim system for door and window case molding, baseboard and other accessory trim but that doesn’t require all cabinets to be the same manufacturer and style. Mixing kitchen cabinet styles and colors is common both throughout the home and in the same room.

The kitchen above has one style of cabinetry made of two different woods and two different finishes. The perimeter cabinets are an inset cabinet style made of hard maple wood and finished with a simple white paint. The island cabinetry is an inset cabinet style as well but made of walnut wood with a natural 25-degree finish. Both of these cabinet finishes blend perfectly with the floor color and overall color scheme of the kitchen.
