In the area of hanging shelves, you have several choices when it comes to the style of brackets and hardware. A good rule of thumb is to use hardware well suited to the structure of the existing wall. Wall-mounted shelves with ready-made shelves and adjustable brackets are ideal for the laundry room, pantry, home office or your child`s room. If you prefer a freestanding shelving system for your wall, be sure it is sturdy enough to stand on its own, or somehow secure it to the wall with cables or hooks. This safety precaution will ensure no one will be able to pull it over and securing your wall system will keep your breakables safe as well.
Everyone wants their shelving to compliment their décor.

Shelving comes in every shape as well, whether it be rectangular, round, square, curved, half-moon shaped, or triangular, and can pretty much fit into any and every space.
