Thanks all!
Bobmedic – Are you suggesting adding a visible cleat underneath the bottom of the shelf for added support? I hadn’t thought about that, but that does seem like it would help. Thank you!
Pendledad – I have no idea what you just said! LOL. Thank you though. I’ll try to digest that a bit latter!
Michael – No major reason it has to be floating shelves. She just thought it would look cleaner, which in that small of a kitchen, may be true – Of course we need to balance looks with functionality with a kitchen this size also, so its still up in the air which way to go.
Jim / James – Thank you for the video and suggestions. I think this might be the route we take if we decide to continue down the floating path. That way, I can use a 2x for the cleat to give a bit more support. The top won’t be seen, so screws from the top won’t be an issue.
Seriously – Thank you all for your opinions and suggestions. You guys are awesome.
