We've seen lots of re-use ideas for nonworking fireplaces here at Apartment Therapy. But how about this one? Kitchen storage shelves. That's what's been installed in this cozy kitchen for a little additional storage without taking up useful floorspace:

The storage shelves in the fireplace are one space-saving solution put to work in this cute kitchen. Other ideas we're spotting:

  • An unlikely vertical storage piece (like a filing cabinet) in the kitchen.
  • Topping off the backsplash with a single open shelf. Why not make a material transition into a storage opportunity?
  • An inexpensive alternative to cabinetry: curtained storage. Fabric curtains are used both in the fireplace storage niche and under-counter for a little cover-up.
