It`s time to get serious about your decorating. I want you to go around your home and take a good look at your wall shelving. Is it beautiful? Well the fact is that most wall shelving is merely functional and most people give more thought about what they are going to put on the shelves than they way the shelves look. When you shop for decorative wall shelves, be creative. Look for designs that are going to blend well and enhance your home decor. You may be surprised what a difference it makes.
The modern decorative wall shelves are one of those accessories that have the perfect combination of aesthetics and functionality. Their very first exclusive feature is their shape. In this new era of modern wall decor, the shelves have been carved into different attractive shapes. The square and rectangle are the most common ones, but if you are looking for something different, then go for the S, U, J or ladder shaped ones. The shelves with these shapes are typical examples of new era floating wall shelves. However, it is important to consider to the size too as they also play a vital role in home decor. They are categorized into small, medium, large and very large size.
Pine and other softwoods represent the cheapest shelves out there, and aren`t usually worth buying in most cases. They`re easily damaged and don`t hold as much weight, making them suitable only for short shelves or longer ones with lots of support. They shouldn`t be used in places where they`re likely to get dinged, either. Only choose pine if you know what you`re getting into. Avoid engineered woods, like particle board, for shelves that need to support any significant weight along a long span. They`ll only bow and warp over time.
