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

Floating bookshelf design inspiration

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.

Kitchen ideas for floating shelves

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!

I ordered and received a porch post in 2020. I'm sorry I'm so late writing a review. Due to the weather and a broken ankle I haven't been able to install it yet. Customer service was great, The quality of the post is fantastic, I sent my own drawing copied from the other 150 year old posts on the porch and they matched it. I still need to paint the post and install it , I will upload a picture when I get there. An excellent woodworking company. I will use them again if I need a top quality post.

I had a few broken porch spindles. They custom made them and they were perfectly matched. Great communication and I highly recommend them. Thanks again.
