There are many good reasons for investing in floating shelves. As for why they are called that, that is obvious when one simply looks at them – they really do appear to be ‘floating’, devoid of any means of support. Such an appearance can be attributed to the fixing of such shelves to internal brackets or other invisible mechanisms that are drilled into the wall behind them.
If desired, the shelves can be further reinforced with aluminium or steel screws. Floating shelves give the appearance of freestanding structures and are a common sight in the homes of discerning people across the UK.
Let’s look at some reasons why people opt for floating shelves. Firstly, their minimal appearance is less distracting than that of some other forms of shelving. There are many different styles to choose from, which means that you shouldn’t struggle to find something that suits, irrespective of your exact tastes. The shelves’ versatility and light weight mean that they can be fitted into any room in your home. What’s more is that they are incredibly easy to install – you don’t need to be a professional handyman to get them in place.
