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.
Once you know what style and size you need, you can start looking at some of the specifics. You`ll need to pay close attention to craftsmanship and quality - choose a company that`ll give you a warranty on your shelves. That`ll let you know that if there is a problem, it can easily be fixed. Warranties can also increase the likelihood that you`ll get a defect free product. After all, no company wants to spend a lot of time paying for products that just don`t work out correctly.
Cherry is easily identifiable by its distinctive reddish brown color and straight grain. It`s a stiff, strong wood that will add some expense to your shelves. However, it`ll look fantastic. Other premium woods include maple and oak. You`ll pay more, but these durable shelves will last a long time and add value to the room you put them in. For some, that`s more than worth the extra cost.
