Wall Shelves – Made of Wood, Metal or Glass
Numerous designers experiment with the classical simple wall shelf and create exceptional and playful models, like the Snake shelf by Casamania which, due to its striking colour, becomes a unique eye-catcher if placed against a white background. Snake shelves can be endlessly combined with each other, allowing you to individualise every room.
The selection of materials chosen by manufacturers is nearly endless as well. Numerous wall shelves are made of wood, metal, glass and plastic – there's something for every furnishing style. It is especially trendy to make it look as if your books or other objects are floating in the air. This effect is achieved by using the linea1 shelves, for example. A wafer-thin sheet of steel makes the shelf look invisible and gives an impression that the books or DVDs are floating against the wall.
Things to Consider When Mounting a Wall Shelf
If you want your shelf to last for a long time, you should mount it correctly and safely. First of all, consider where you want to put the shelf. At the same time, think of what you are going to store on it. Place the shelf on your wall using a spirit level and mark the outlines with a pencil in order to get the correct position. Take note of the weight of things you are going to keep on the shelf to be sure it will be stable enough. Thus, when you've chosen a perfect shelf, think about how to mount it: it is very important that you use the right screws and dowels. There is suitable mounting hardware for every kind of wall. Walls in old buildings, for example, are often porous and need long screws and dowels to ensure the shelf remains stable.
