Rated 5 out of 5Â by SweetHAL Will buy it again and again...
We had some of these at home already. It was a no brainer when I needed more shelves...I looked for the same kind. We use them to put some decorative plates, small statues, crystals/stones, for example.
Easy to install (Remember to remove and you keep the paper attached to the shelf. It's the guide to put on the wall where you want to install it-showing you the exact placement of the screws). We found out that it is wise to leave the screws a little loose to insert the shelf in half way (a lot of times walls aren't even) When the shelf is inserted in the supports, tighten the screws. You will be able to push evenly on the shelf towards the wall.
Looks great! Has about 3 inches of depth, and we like the edge that stops the items from falling.
Would buy again and again...

These shelves are sleek and modern. They fit perfect in our playroom to display photos and other decorative pieces. A bit different to install on dry wall, but easy to follow instructions which made mounting a pain free process.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by lawdame perfect for task
I used a 36" and a 24" shelf beside a lavatory to corral all my husband's toiletries, medicines, etc. They hold everything he formerly piled on the counter and around the sink and they are narrow enough not to protrude over the sink and get in the way, but wide enough to hold even a can of hairspray.. The lip on the front keeps little bottles and other items from slipping off and so far they have proved sturday and stable. I like them so much I turned around and bought another 24" because, as usefeul as they are, I know I will find another spot where I can use one. SO much better than the usual wide shelf for so many places. They are sleek and add to the decor rather than detracting. Bet you could paint'em if need be.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Reallybigbadwolf Incredibly and needlessly difficult to install.
Nice shelf. Exactly what I wanted with a ledge. Toggle bolts are supplied and these are incredibly difficult to install. Metal wall anchors would have been much easier to install and just as secure.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BStewie Great little shelf
Purchased this for my stepdaughter's bathroom to go right under her mirror and it's great! She apparently thought it would be bigger but it is the perfect size for what we need - it isn't wide enough to stick out over the sink faucet but it's wide enough to put toothpaste, etc on.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by romille installation is surprisingly a pain
I bought this (48") shelf thinking it would be super simple to install. I mean, screw four brackets into the wall and then slide shelf on... how hard can that be?
But it comes with 3-inch long skinny bolts with metal toggles. The toggles require 3/8" holes in the wall, so it is going to leave some good sized holes to fill if we ever take it down. And the bolts are so long that I actually had to use the Dremel and trim two of them because they were hitting something in the wall. Who has dry wall that thick?? Starting with the toggle halfway up the bolt helps, but you have to keep tension on it the whole time to get it to sink the bolt, which is more troublesome than it sounds.
I had planned on buying a second shelf, but after the install I am really not sure I want to. If I do get a second shelf, I think I will just skip their toggles and use my own plastic anchors. Once installed it does look nice at least.

This is the perfect depth (and width since you can choose different sizes) for those items that get lost on the mantle or other larger shelves. Small framed pictures, toys, tiny LEGO creations, etc. This is the shelf you want. The toggle bolts it comes with may be overkill, I don't think you'll put anything that heavy on it.

Â by TheRetroMachine Great for holding Tchochke's of course
Love this shelf! The shelf and the brackets are of fine quality and are perfect for holding and displaying my retro knick-knacks. Installation is easy, but I did find it hard to level using the little plastic strip that is included. I was also a little nervous to drill such big holes for the screws, but it worked out.
The hardware and mounts are quite nice. I will buy more like this.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Rick1985 Size issues
This is definitely one of the nicest shelf that I have seen so far. I love the finish and also its design. The only problem that I had is the shelf outer width and dimension is simply too small. For example, I can only use this shelf to put like small candles, keys, and picture frame but not other items such placing a vodka or cups into it. I am looking for a larger version of it so I can place larger items into them. Thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by memel Nice little shelf
I was looking for a floating shelf that was narrow and did not project too far from the wall; this was one of the few I found and the only one I found available in white and 24 inches long. Overall, I am quite happy with my purchase. It is well made and the directions are carefully thought outâ¿¿the template for drilling is a big help. Even so, installing the shelf on a plaster wall was trickyâ¿¿worth the trouble, but not nearly as straight-forward as I hoped. Getting the shelf hardware correctly spaced and level, even with the template, required a lot of small adjustments, because in order to put the anchor bolts in the wall, the holes drilled are way larger than the screws. This means they can shift around in the holes while being screwed in, thus changing the alignment enough to mess things up. If you go in expecting a quick installation, you will be frustrated. If you go in with at least an hour to mess around, you will be okay.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by snoringdormouse Shampoo holder
I installed one of these shelves in our bathroom. I chose them because they're narrow and it makes our small bathroom feel more open. I put shampoo bottles on there and a small boardbook for my toddler since she's learning to use the potty. I used them in conjunction with these white display shelves http://www.containerstore.com/shop/shelving/wallMountedShelving/completeShelfKits?productId=10020474&N=13394&Nao=20&Ns=p_sort_default%7C0
Also, i got the bamboo toothbrush holder and container set, which fit perfectly on both the tchotchke and display shelves.

I needed shelves to display my shot glasses that were narrow and had a lip to accomidate all the different styles. After going to several different stores and only finding wide shelves, I decided to go to my favorite store to shop ,The Container Store. I was not disappointed, there were the perfect shelves. My shot glasses look great up on the wall with the white shelves. I go back and purchase more shelves to accomidate my ever growing collecting of shot glasses. It its wonderful to be able to know that the shelves I need will be there.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by chimsb Good shelves, installation issues
These are nice looking shelves and great for small things. The installation hardware actually needs a 1/4 inch hole for each anchor bolt. That's a pretty big hole for the size of the hardware. The site also recommends buying their drill bit, which was too small for the anchors.

Purchased these for use in my daughters room to display their ever growing collection of trophies! I love the way the shelves have a lip to keep the items secure! No more fighting for limited space on the horizontal surfaces and the room looks less cluttered! Thanks Container Store for a great product.

Shelves look VERY good. I had them installed at work by my facilities team (I don't think they wanted me ruining their walls). They put some heavy duty anchors in the walls to be sure that the shelves could support the weight.

Very easy to install. The perfect depth around the kitchen table. Only criticism would be that the silver finish on the hardware is a little irregular. Would prefer that the shelf's "jewelry" be perfect. Otherwise, very nice.

These shelves are perfect for my rubber stamp collection! The shelves are easy to install and look classy. I've been looking for narrow "floating" shelves to put my stamps on and these really fit the bill. They hold stamps 2 deep, anymore and I can't see the ones in back. Finally my collection is out on display where I can enjoy them and make better use of them!
