What will you display on your shelves? If you are creating a shelving area for your extensive library, your shelves will need to be very sturdy. Other items such as trinkets, photographs, baskets and favorite collections may not require as much support. Wood or glass shelves are better suited for smaller items, whereas wire shelving will accommodate larger items and linens very well. The more items you can store up and away using wall space means a cleaner and more organized home overall.
One easy solution for quick storage is adjustable shelving and track shelving units are one of the best choices for easy to install adjustable shelving. This is shelving that sits on metal rails that are attached to the wall. Decide where on the walls the shelves should sit. Use a level to help position the rails on the wall where you want them. You should use a pencil to mark the place on the wall where the top of the rails hit. Now put anchors in the wall and attach the rails. Most self-installation kits come with anchors and all the fasteners you will need. Simply put the anchors into the wall and then using your wall markings, screw the railings to the wall.
The basic parts of a floating shelf package are the internal bracket, restraining screw and the shelf with holes that fit the internal bracket. Simple installation process involves measuring where to make holes, drilling holes in the wall, screw the inner bracket to the holes, and last is sliding the shelf to the inner bracket fitting. After installing, only the shelf will be visible and make sure to read the maximum capacity of the shelf to avoid accidents.
The corner shelf can also be a great place for a small television. You don`t want to put a lot of weight on them, but a depending how it was mounted to the wall, some can handle up to 50 pounds. Screwing them directly onto the studs can dramatically increase the amount of weight they can bear. So be sure to follow all the manufacturers recommendations and limitations to avoid a disastrous situation.
