Everyone wants their shelving to compliment their décor. A variety of materials are used today to create shelving, so choose ones that will not only serve the function of holding your treasures, but also will blend into and match your existing décor seamlessly. Choose from solid woods of every color and grain, stainless steel, composite, or glass to make your shelving fit your personal style. 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.
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.
Different woods have different properties. Alder, for instance, is a light, easy to stain wood with no particular grain pattern and a very consistent color. It doesn`t have a lot of resistance to shock, however, so you shouldn`t try using it for shelves that might be easily dinged or damaged. Birch is another light colored wood that stains well, but it`s strong and hard, and has a noticeable fine wavy grain. Aspen is similarly light and evenly grained. It`s also very easy to find in shelves.
