Buying Guide

If you'd like to know how to install a floating component shelf, then you should know that there are several ways to do it using different types of hardware. You can choose to use brackets that are specifically designed for floating shelves but are also visible to the eye.

Alternatively, if you'd like to keep the hardware out of sight, then you can build your own hollow shelf and slide it right onto a wooden cleat.

Another option is using figure-eight fasteners to hold your shelf up on the wall.

If you are using brackets, use a stud finder to find the studs in the wall. Then use a drill to drill into the stud where you would like to hang the shelf.

Next, secure the bracket in the hole and use a level to place the second bracket. Install the second bracket using a drill and secure it tightly.

Lastly, measure the distance between the bracket holes equally and drill the bracket holes into your shelf, then slide the shelf onto the brackets.#

Floating component shelves are a more streamlined and minimalist option compared to traditional models as they won’t interrupt your wall’s flow with supporting braces.

As well as being more versatile, this makes them a better choice in minimalist or contemporary settings in particular.

A floating component shelf is perfect for DVD players, cable boxes, small speakers, and other accessories your entertainment system needs. As long as the floating component shelf is close to the TV or entertainment system, the cables connecting the devices can remain nearly invisible, enhancing the minimalist appearance.

The exact electronics that can be stored on a floating shelf partly depend on its depth. Floating shelves are rarely deeper than 8”, so large DVD players or game consoles might not fit safely.

Floating component shelves can also work for books and decor. However, keep in mind that each floating component shelf has a weight limit. Since books weigh so much, a floating component shelf designed for electronics might not hold multiple large books.
