How Do I Find (& Install) Floating Shelves for the Kitchen?

Q: I'm looking to add an open shelf to my kitchen like the ones pictured here. I want it to be deep enough and strong enough to hold dishes, a couple canisters, some spices, etc.

I've seen a bunch of examples from kitchen tours here, yet I am having trouble finding where to buy or how make to make them. What I'm finding is either too shallow or won't support anything more than a few pictures and accessories.

Does anyone know where to either get such a shelf or find good DIY instructions for them?
Thank you in advance!
