Wood, Glass or Metal: What Kinds of Wall Shelves are There?
Wall shelving come in all kinds of materials. Each material has its own appeal and unique characteristics. But what's going to look good in your home? Let’s have a look at the most common materials.
Wall shelf in classic colors
Black wall shelving are always a great eye-catcher. It doesn't really matter if you prefer black a dark grey hue – a dark wall shelf is timeless and creates an air of elegance and chic. Wall shelves in classic colors will suit virtually any interior theme. They will fit in perfectly with your existing furniture, and a few colourful highlights will really make them stand out. For you it's all about the surface feel? Your grey wall shelf unit could be glass, metal, painted or made with melamine-coated wood – the choice is yours!
A look of weightlessness and elegance! A glass shelf in the bathroom creates space for cosmetics and sets the stage for your most precious possessions in the living room. Despite their delicate look, many of our glass wall shelves can carry a lot of weight, which makes them a great choice for the kitchen as well. There are many shapes and colours to choose from.
Industrial Style for Beauty and Elegance
A hanging metal wall shelf unit looks cool and edgy and adds contemporary chic to any room. Characteristic here are the simple, straight lines combined with a slimline silhouette. The only colour that comes to mind is boring grey? Our wall shelving are available in different colors as well! The look is in no way impersonal and cold – quite the opposite wall shelves are trendy, contemporary and urban.
'Wall shelves have an airy and bright feel. Personally, I like to combine several wall shelf units. That way, I have plenty of space for all my decorative objects and for my design magazines.'

What Type of Wall Shelf Unit is Best for my Home?
Need a focal point for your wall? Furniture with a modern design creates visual highlights that emphasise the decorative aspect over their function. Adding an eye-catching focal point for your feature wall couldn’t be easier. You might try combining several plain, straight-line wall shelving to create a whole wall of shelves. Shelf cubes are very popular right now, and they can be combined in many different arrangements for a fantastic, eye-catching 3D effect.

How Do I Attach a Shelf Securely on the Wall?
It is best to think about what you want to store on your wall shelf unit before you go out and buy one. Do you want to display picture frames and accessories on it? Or do you need something stronger like a hanging shelf with plenty of space for dinnerware or heavy books? Each wall shelf type is displayed with information about its load-bearing capacity to make it easy for you to choose the right product for your purposes.
These attachment options are available:
Wall Shelving with Functional Brackets
A shelf with elbow brackets is probably the most common type of hanging shelf. Lateral brackets double as bookends and keep everything else in check that could take a nosedive off the shelf. Inwardly offset shelf brackets can be very attractive decorative elements.
Floating Shelves with Invisible Brackets
The perfect choice for minimalists and fans of the Scandinavian look: Floating shelf brackets disappear inside the shelf board. They are invisible from the outside and the shelf seems to be floating weightlessly on the wall.
All that can be seen is the minimalist design of the wall shelving. All the space and the full load-bearing capacity can be used and you don’t have to arrange your books or decorations around any brackets.
Shelf Cube with Keyhole Mounting
This type of wall hanger has the great advantage of being invisible. The keyhole bracket, which slots into the back of the cube frame, is an elegant solution if you want to attach your product without visible attachment elements.
One important point: This type of wall mounting requires precision when you are drilling your holes, as you can't make any corrections afterwards. The bore holes must be drilled exactly in line with the keyholes in the shelf.
Shelf Cube with Sawtooth Mounting
Some shelf cubes are wall-mounted with a sawtooth attachment. This type of wall attachment forgives small inaccuracies when drilling or hammering, because the longish sawtooth plates allow for a bit of offset, which means the cube can be nudged a little bit until it is perfectly level.
How Sturdy are Wall Shelves?
Is the wall strong enough to hold a heavy wall shelf? Here is an easy trick: Knock on the wall to find out how sturdy it is. A dull muffled sound points towards a brick or concrete wall. Walls like these can hold heavy weights, which means things like books or heavy pottery will be safe. A hollow sound will most likely mean that you are dealing with plasterboard. These walls are most likely not suitable for mounting heavy wall shelf units. Hanging some small decorative wall shelving or cubes that won’t be holding heavy weights won't be a problem for that type of wall. All our wall shelving comes with universal wall anchors for brickwork as well as plasterboard. Please note that the max. load-bearing capacity of a wall shelving is reduced when it is mounted on plasterboard.
The walls in older buildings are usually constructed with bricks, sandstone, hollow bricks or have had concrete repair work done, which may make them very porous. This is what you do if a bit of the wall breaks away during drilling making the hole much too large or if sand starts trickling out because you hit a joint: Mix some quick setting concrete from the DIY store and fill the opening. Once the mix has set, you can drill again in the same place and the wall will usually be a lot more robust there.
