Floating bookshelves, these are bookshelves I like. Looks like you could do this with an IKEA kitchen wall cabinet minus door and turned horizontal to mount. (These could be really pretty, painted to match the wall!)
Open-Shelf Storage Solution - Boost storage and display space in a kitchen by capping off a run of cabinets with open shelves. These shelves face the adjoining breakfast room and offer a convenient spot for storing cookbooks. The shelf unit also rises slightly above the counter surface to help hide clutter.
Storing cookbooks like they're displayed in a bookstore--i love this idea! I have an affinity for nicely organized & displayed books and since I don't have too many cookbooks, this would look nice in my kitchen!
