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.
Most wood types are quite durable so you can`t go very wrong with any choice you make. This is what makes wood a perfect material. You do not have to be a professor to learn the types of wood available. Whichever you decide upon should be a good option. A cheat sheet with the most popular types of wood is all you need when shopping for your new shelves.
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.
