Glass Shelf Brackets - Floating On Air Glass shelves seem to defy gravity, allowing whatever is on them to appear to float in mid-air. While glass shelves cant hold a lot, they beautifully enhance everything that you display on them. Glass shelving is often associated with bathrooms, and theres nothing wrong with that, but why not consider them for other rooms in your home as well? Glass shelves in the kitchen with jars of beans or candied fruit are a great way to spruce up an unused corner or area above the door. Likewise, a set of glass shelves with family pictures in the den gives you added display space without making the room feel too enclosed. In order to maximize the beauty of glass shelves, make sure you use appropriate supports for them. Glass shelf brackets are specifically designed for the purpose, enhancing the elegance of the shelves themselves. Dont use glass shelf brackets for other types of shelves unless their use is clearly specified in the mounting instructions. Brackets approved for glass shelving tend to be lighter, more delicate and, in some cases, purposely smaller than other types of brackets. A large metal bracket may completely overshadow and weigh down a glass shelf, causing it to look unbalanced and unnecessarily heavy. It is also wasted on a glass shelf, since larger brackets are designed to hold more weight, which usually isnt an issue with shelves designed for display rather than storage. The smallest glass shelf brackets are rails or clips. These brackets barely stick out from the wall, and many of them are made from chrome, so that they shine like glass and naturally blend with the shelf that they are supporting. First they are mounted on the wall, and then the shelves are fitted onto them. Instead of screws that go through the glass shelf in order to hold it in place, they have specially designed screws with a blunt end that pushes down and grips the shelf in place. They are also rated for weight as well as the thickness of the glass that they are designed for. Rails and clips are really only good for glass shelves holding the lightest of items. They are not designed to support any type of serious weight. There are complete pages dedicated to the subject of brackets, shelving accessories, shelves of all sorts and more at The Home Shelving Guide. Come over and take a look at all the informations that weve gathered for you. If youre interested in putting heavier objects on glass shelves and youre worried about sagging, you would be better off with standard glass brackets. These are more traditionally designed brackets that extend out fully from the wall to support the shelf. They differ from regular wood shelf brackets in that they are usually longer than the shelfs width. They are built with a raised foot on the end or an extended lip that holds the glass shelf in place. Since glass slides on metal easily this is important so that the shelf wont slide off. The variety of glass shelf brackets available in the market is extensive. Pick brackets that match your décor, your budget, and most importantly, the support needs of your glass shelves.
The Importance of Proper Shelf Support Having a shelf in your room can be a great help in organizing your messy room, as you have much more storage space available to place your books, photo frames or other belongings on it. However, it is extremely important that you have proper shelf brackets, as you do not want your shelf to collapse under the weight and fall to the floor. It has happened to me once, and I wish that it will never happen to you. Most people pay attention to what kind of shelf they are going to get, and forget about the most important aspect - the shelf bracket. When buying a bracket, always check how much weight it is able to hold. If you are getting a wooden shelf and intend to place heavy stuff on it, make sure your bracket is able to handle the load. Some shelf brackets require you to drill a hole in the wall, while some just requires some basic nails. Make sure you have the proper tools and equipment before buying the shelf, as you do not want to make another trip to the home improvement store. When installing the shelf, make sure that you position that bracket exactly where they should be. Take a measuring tape and measure the exact dimensions and location where the bracket is to go. Mark that position out clearly with a pen or a marker, as it would be very troublesome and unsightly if you drill a hole in the wrong position.
Updating Your Home With Glass Shelf Brackets Shelving of any type is very important in any home. They are not only convenient spaces for storage or for displaying treasures - the shelves themselves are considered furniture pieces, so they should be equally appealing to the eye and match the interiors of your room. If you are going for a more modern and minimalist vibe in your room design, you have probably foregone traditional bulky wooden shelves, and opted for ones made of clean, shiny glass. If this is the case, then you need to know everything about glass shelf brackets - they are integral to the form and function of your beautiful glass shelf. Glass shelf brackets will provide the additional security that your collection needs. Glass is a very fragile material, so while it looks very elegant and exquisite, it is also more prone to breaking than wood or metal. Glass shelf brackets will give your glass shelves more support and security by lessening its propensity to slip and break. You need to get brackets that are specifically designed for glass shelving. Fortunately, these brackets can come in many styles and designs so you do not have to worry about compromising aesthetics. Attaching the brackets to the shelves is also a little different from attaching brackets to ordinary wooden shelves. Usually, instead of drills and screws, the brackets have slots where the glass will be slid into. Be sure to consult a professional or read the mounting instructions carefully before drilling them against the wall. Glass shelving and shelf brackets for glass shelves are commonly found and used in bathroom interiors, because glass is waterproof and easy to clean. Instead of having closed cupboards or drawers in your bathroom, it is much more convenient and attractive to have shelving and brackets made of glass.

Your personal time will feel more elegant and relaxing when your bathroom possesses a clear and pleasing ambiance. Aside from the bathroom, you can also consider bringing glass shelves into other rooms in your house.

Naturally, glass shelves and glass shelf brackets will follow suit - not just in the bathroom, but in the rest of the house. It can be a great way to spruce up the kitchen counter, or the living room wall. Instead of having jars lined up on the counter or photos framed against the wall, why not have them placed atop an elegant glass fixture? Even without screws, the glass shelf brackets will definitely help from keeping these things from sliding or crashing to the ground. Using glass shelf brackets for your glass shelves will be a great way to update the look of any room without resorting to drastic repainting or renovations.
