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.
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.
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.
