Walnut Floating Shelves is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Floating shelves They are indeed floating as they float away from the wall! The 36" shelf came right out of the wall and the books went everywhere. I did not have that many books on the shelf either. The screws that were sent are inadequate and our handyman had to go to Plan B to redo the shelf. The shelves look good but that's where it ends--they are useless for what I had in mind.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless I bought 2 of these shelves, installed one and returned the other. Installation of bracket was not a problem. The shelf just slides over 2 rods - no way to secure the shelf to the rods, so it sags away from the wall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great ... once installed Once I got these up (6 3-footers, 2 2-footers) they are beautiful and strong. Perfect for books and large objects. I am glad I got them, and they were worth the installation effort. One star off for installation pain. The hardware provided for wood studs and drywall installation were awful. The copper colored screws for studs , the heads snapped right off of several, so They couldn't hold the bar, and couldn't come out. and when they didn't snap off, they were about 1/4" too long-they just wouldn't screw all the way in. The drywall mounts were worse - half of them twisted or snapped into useless pieces of plastic, many with pueces stuck in the holes so I coukdn't get them out. Others got stripped by the screwdriver when I tried to screw them in. Solution: I went to the hardware store, and picked up a package of heavy duty wall anchors (rated for 50lbs each) that come with a drill bit, a kind I've used before and trust. I also used a few leftover ELFA drywall mounts that I had hanging around. They worked great, too. I also picked up some slightly shorter wood screws. Once I switched to those, installation went much, much smoother!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Installation Warning Good solid shelf, but be careful before you drill any holes in your wall. The template for the 36 inch shelf is wrong! I had to create my own which made the project more difficult than it should have been. Also, the instructions for installing in drywall are missing some details... fortunately I've put up a few shelves like this in the past. I used a 3/16 bit to drill the pilot hole. Make sure you hammer the plastic anchors halfway in (just to where the spiral threads touch the surface of the wall) before starting to twist with the screwdriver.

Community Q&A

How much weight can these handle?

On a typical modern sheetrock wall, where these might be hung with anchors rather than in studs, how much weight would each shelf safely handle? ... is it sturdy/strong enough for a row of books, for example, without pulling away from the wall or sagging?
Asked by: THav
when installed correctly, even on drywall, they can take a lot of weight. I think the official line was 33lb for drywall installation, 66lb for instsllation into wood or masonry. Mine are mostly in drywall, and hold heavy books end-to-end with no problem, on both the 2-foot and 3-foot sizes. I wouldn't have an adult hang off of them, but books or a cat would be no problem.

I only have metal studs. Will I be able to mount these shelves? If they won't mount on metal studs is there some way to reinforce to make it work?

Asked by: JoanieH
The shelves come with three sets of screws and anchors that should solve any mounting issues

How are these floating shelves mounted? Can they be mounted on a mirror without causing damage when removed?

Asked by: JoVo
This shelf has a bracket that must be screwed into a wall and preferably a stud.

Can this be hung in a bathroom?

Asked by: tindl
Our Floating Shelves can tolerate humid environments, but care should be taken to avoid actually getting the shelves wet.

I would like to put books on the shelves. How much weight will they hold? How are the shelves mounted?

Asked by: February1
When properly mounted according to the instructions, our Floating Shelves can each support 33 pounds of evenly distributed weight when mounted on drywall and 66 pounds of evenly distributed weight when mounted on concrete or wood.

Do shelves have to be centered on studs?

I have studs available, but they are not necessarily positioned the way I want the shelves to be positioned. It is not clear from the pdf how the shelves attach to the mounting brackets. Are there exact places that are 16 inches on center, or can the shelves be shifted left to right (or placed on studs that are not 16 inches on center)? I only want to mount the shelves on studs as I want to be able to store more than 33 pounds on them.
Asked by: skelly
For our Floating Shelves to have a weight capacity of 66 pounds of evenly distributed weight, they must mounted on concrete or wood. The mounting brackets are exactly 16" on center.

Can these shelves be cut down a few inches?

I have a space that's less than 36" (maybe 30") and I wanted to cut them down. Will this damage their integrity? They will be mounted up against a wall on the cut end.
Asked by: HelpingNana
We do not recommend that these shelves be cut, as it will cause the veneer to peel off.
