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.
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.
Earlier on the reason of a wall shelf was keeping the books and crockery but nowadays they are used as decorative pieces for the walls too. They are an utter necessity in smaller rooms, kitchens and study rooms. These are space savers and are extremely important for an apartment. We now have lots of things to hold and that`s when we need a wall shelf the most.
