5 Creative Floating Shelf Designs to Inspire You
All of these made-to-order shelves are crafted from real solid hardwood – rather than cheap veneers and fillers. From a style standpoint, our shelves are recognizable from their slim profile that is ideal for rooms with a clean, open style. See a few of our favorite floating shelf designs and get inspired to transform your space:
Rustic, Built-In Bookshelves
Traditional bookshelves tend to be big bulky things that are oftentimes more likely to jam-pack your space rather than enhance it. Using our floating shelves for a built-in bookshelf not only provides the exact amount of book storage you need – but it provides a unique enhancement to a bedroom or study, too.
Here’s a truly unique use for floating shelf décor. Pairing one of these shelves (installed at waist level) with an office chair and your laptop can create a unique home workspace almost anywhere. Not only does it provide a flexible solution for working from home, but it also adds to the character of whatever room it’s in!
Living Room Décor
This floating shelf design can provide a real conversation starter in your living room or dining room, where guests are most likely to see it. Since the shelf itself is beautiful in its own right, pairing it with decorations makes it even better. We often see shelves for living room décor used to hold plants, primitives, and favorite nick-nacks!
Supplemental to Kitchen Cabinets
Farmhouse kitchens are an incredibly in-demand style. The natural wood and open look of a floating shelf creates a complement to fit alongside the rustic cabinets in a renovated farmhouse kitchen. Using these shelves to display everything from plates to cookware solves storage problems and serves to decorate the space.
Practical Bathroom or Laundry Shelves
The shelves that come standard for spaces like bathrooms and laundry rooms tend not to be the most attractive or the most durable. Whether they are sequestered in a linen closest or simply out in the open, the bland old shelves need an upgrade. By replacing them with gorgeous wooden options, you bring a real sense of personality to a space that would often be overlooked.
Love these floating shelf designs? They’re just the beginning of what we can craft for you. We give you ample room to request custom options, including everything from unique looks to different wood species, including white oak and cherry.
From a practical standpoint, all of our shelves are built to be extremely strong and are able to hold 100 pounds. Finally, they are extremely simple to install – even if this is one of your first DIY projects ever!
