Floating Wall Shelf

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I want to do wall shelf for my living room and study. It seems to be an easy job.

I like the idea of floating wall shelf (“invisible bracket” or at least the bracket is not easily noticed).

Went to ikea, Lack shelf is great but not as hard as it is paper-stuff in side the shelf. Tend to descend after a while if used on heavy objects.

http://www.ikea.com/sg/en/catalog/products/20186182/

Marginal wall shelf is next best but the price quite steep at $69 each.

http://www.ikea.com/sg/en/catalog/products/90176504/

Moreover, I already have some nice wood shelf pieces left from the past, if I get Marginal, to me it will be $69 just for 2 brackets. :o

Can someone help me, where can I get those “invisible” bracket to fix my “floating” wall shelf.

Appreciate your inputs. Thanks

you can buy the holders in IKEA then buy the wood planks at homefix. They are stronger and lasting.

If you have the budget go for the elfa system also.

the ones u shown from IKEA are made of compressed woods.

Although cheap but not durable in long run.Not ideal for heavy duty use.

do you meant the rest of the shelf brackets in Ikea?

If yes, those brackets are mostly very obvious to eyes (not "invisible") after fixed and doesn't make the shelf looks like floating on wall. I want the bracket to be "invisbible" just the shelf on the wall.
