Fireplace Built-ins Measurement and Window Selection Help

27 days ago

I am looking to do built ins flanking each side of our fireplace and also looking to do a transom window to add some light. I love the look of floating shelves above built ins but trying to figure out if i have room for it all. See below for picture of our measurements and some inspiration photos. I currently have a 49” x 20” transom window planned but thinking that is too long of a window to also do shelves. I have 9’ ceilings and windows will be placed ~12” from ceiling. For anyone doing a similar look, how much space do you all have between floating shelves? How tall are your lower cabinets? How high up does the forst shelf start? Debating on shrinking my window or scrapping the floating shelves. If I change my window to 49” x 12” is that an awkward shape? Thanks!!!
