Decide what purpose your wooden shelf will serve before you acquire it. If heavy possessions will be placed on it then you will require hard wood. If lighter items will be placed on the shelf than a soft wood will due. Decorative wall shelves have become popular for displaying ornamental items. A decorative wood wall shelf often has engravings in it and is generally made out of soft wood. Pine is a variety of soft wood that is used for this purpose.
Decorative wall shelves can be bought already put together. This sort of package includes the top of the shelf, the brackets, and even matching screws. Buying shelving like this is probably the most popular way to go. These pre-packaged decorative wall shelves are simple and leave no room for error. Just check some of them out at your neighborhood hardware or home improvement store, you may be pleasantly surprised with how easy they are to install.
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.
