Kitchen design - One stud available, need ideas


Can anyone help me with my kitchen design? Ive planned out all of my cabinets and marked it out on the floor, but the upper shelving is proving to be a real pain. We didnt move any electric except the light, and it only slid down to hang on the wall instead of the ceiling. Where the vent hood electric comes in, we had to change the plan for the supports and hang it from a bracketed shelf instead of using the L-shaped ones we wanted to. I can put another shelf above it on the same bracket supports, but between this shelf and the window there is approximately 2' of space that i dont know what to do with. I wanted shelving across the whole wall, but the window trim takes up the whole stud beside the window, and there is only one stud available to screw the support to. Can anyone give some suggestions on what to do on that wall that will only require one stud?

the space is between the window trim and the spot where the small black square hole is to the right. About 2' wide.

If your cabinet or shelf is going to cover the wall in that spot then cut out the wall paneling (or drywall, hard to tell from the picture) and install a horizontal 2x4 mounting to both studs. Then you can install the paneling over it and install the shelf over it.

thanks for answering but it wouldnt work. The wall is covered in masonite board that is routed to look like beadboard. The finish is really delicate and if we cut a hole in it, there is no way to cover the cut except with trim and that would be a bit obvious since there is no cabinets on the top. Im thinking about a utensil rack and a magnetic knife rack there, with two screws drilled into the one stud. not sure if itll work but im coming up empty for ideas here

Then just pull the panel back off and install the bracing you need.
