Ikea Grundtal: The Stylish King of Cheap Kitchen Shelving

G R U N D T A L. Yiming is currently in our Small Cool Contest and this is her kitchen. Painted gloss black wall with gleaming modern stainless shelving popping off of it. It's totally high style. You should check out her whole place here. The shelving is a great, great IKEA design and about as cheap as you can get. It's called GRUNDTAL and was designed for Ikea by Mikael Warnhammar....

This is a workhorse that's been around for years, but it's definitely one of Ikea's best designs in terms of style and efficiency. The entire collection has 35 pieces, but these stainless shelves are the backbone. They are useful in kitchen, bathroom, garage and even outdoors. The stainless, while not of the highest grade, is pretty darn good and will look good a long time.

More pieces in the collection from Not Martha

We've used this countless time with clients and at home. If you want to do open shelving with a slightly industrial look. This is the way to go.
