Buying Guide

A standard floating shelf can hold approximately 30 to 75 pounds depending on a number of factors such as the material it is made of, how deep the shelf is, and how many studs are used.

If built correctly, wall-mounted wood shelves can hold up to 300 pounds. Multiply the number of brackets by the safe load to determine the safe load capacity for the entire shelf. For example, for a shelf that has three brackets rated 250 pounds, 62.5 pounds is actually the safe load, while the load capacity of the shelf as a whole is 187.5 pounds.

When it comes to choosing wall-mounted wood shelves, it might seem like choosing a needle in a haystack since there is a multitude of options out there. Wall-mounted wood shelves are available as horizontal shelves, vertical shelves, labyrinth shelves, and even wavy shelves in terms of design.

There are shelves for books, bathroom essentials, kitchen items, decor, and everything else under the sun. But what are the most common types of wood shelves, and which one should you choose?

Woods like African padauk, mahogany, and koa are considered the strongest types of wood for shelves, especially those holding heavyweight. The type of wall shelves you choose will also be determined by the intended purpose.

However, the strength and reliability of your shelves ultimately depend on their choice of mounting. The most durable and highly recommended type of mounting is rigid fixation which attaches the shelves to the wall using special fittings.
