A single and simple shelf above the kitchen sink not only looks elegant, but also helps you add personal touch to the space. You can keep things like toiletries or a small indoor plant over it. Make sure that the shelf is not made of wood, glass or metal. It should also not be varnished, waxed. You have to be mindful of the fact that there could be water splashes from the sink. Be careful while drilling the shelf in the bathroom wall where electrical wires and pipes are hidden.
