Buying Guide

The function of shelves are fantastic, you can store what you want on them; from books to plants, to ornaments and photos. However, it's not the function of a shelf that’s the problem, it’s installing them! The typical shelf has brackets, and unless you are an expert (which I am assuming that the majority of you reading this are not), no matter how much you try, the brackets always find a way to mess things up! The good news is that there is a way around this, no you don’t need to call in a carpenter, because all you need are some natural wood floating shelves! If you are not sure how to shop for them, here is a buying guide to get you started.

The assumption is that all walls are sturdy enough to be able to hold a shelf, but the truth is that some of them are not, so you want to make sure that yours is. What you don’t want is for your shelf to sag and collapse, so you are either going to need blocking behind the drywall, or studs where you want to attach them.

You also want to make sure that you have enough space on your walls for the floating shelves. If you want longer shelves, you want to make sure that you have a big enough wall space to accommodate them. Making sure there is enough space will prevent a cramped look.

The type of natural wood floating shelves you choose to buy will depend on what you are going to put on them. Will it be large or small items, and how do you intend on arranging them on the shelves? These are typically things people think about once the shelves have been fastened to the wall; however, get one step ahead of the game and think about it before you make your purchase.

The assumption is that you are going to want shelves that are compliant with the décor in your home. The good news is that floating shelves come in a variety of designs to suit your needs, here are some of them:

  • Cube floating shelves: Are you going for that isometric look? If so, cubed floating shelves will give you exactly what you want. You can pair them with straight shelves so that the cube design is not too overwhelming.
  • Zigzag floating corner shelves: This design takes up a minimum amount of space on the wall, you can tuck it neatly away in a corner but still make a stylish display of your favorite ornaments.
  • Vintage: If you are going for a unique vintage look, the natural wood floating shelves come in this style too!
  • Corner display shelf: You might want to prop lone items such as a photo, a plant or an ornament on a small shelf, a small corner display shelf is perfect for highlighting your much loved single items.

So there you have it, a helpful buying guide to get your creative juices flowing! Now you can go shopping for your natural wood floating shelves in confidence.
