Decorative Shelf Brackets - Its Time to Give Your Shelves a Whole New Look Decorative shelf brackets are an often underrated element in eye-catching shelves. Its all too easy to overlook them while concentrating on the shelf itself, or the shelf edging, but it would be a mistake to do so. Sometimes, instead of replacing old shelves all you need to breathe new life into them is to invest in decorative shelf brackets. Brackets complement and highlight a shelf, defining its look and feel, and adding to the character of the room. You can find them in materials as diverse as classic wrought iron, modern sleek chrome, warm and inviting wood and more. Shelf brackets should reflect their surroundings. Modern chrome brackets fit better holding up glass shelves in a bathroom, but cast iron Victorian brackets will work better in a foyer or formal dining room. You can find an endless variety of decorative shelf brackets online. They range from 99 cents apiece up to hundreds of dollars for just one of a pair. In order to choose whats best for you, decide how many brackets youll need, what style you are interested in, and your budget. Dont forget to take into account the weight load rating for the brackets. While most brackets will hold up most shelves, make sure you double check that the decorative shelf brackets youve set your heart on are suitable for your shelves before you purchase them. Size is important too. Its important for the bracket to properly support the shelf that its holding up. A common mistake is to buy brackets that are either to big or too small for the shelves. If theyre too big then theyll stick out, and if theyre too small then the shelf could be unstable and dangerous. The projection of the bracket (the part that sticks out from the wall and holds the shelf) should extend to within an inch of the outer edge of the shelf. In order to understand more about shelves and brackets, take a look at The Home Shelving Guide. Weve collected a lot of info and recommendations on shelving, also how to build shelves yourself. You dont have to buy decorative shelf brackets - you can make them instead. With a little imagination and some common sense, you could take many household or flea market objects and turn them into creative and unique shelf brackets. Bicycle handlebars, old baseball bats, hockey sticks and childrens toys could all be usable as brackets. Just remember that first and foremost they need to provide stable and uniform support for the shelves that they are meant to hold up. You can even go to another level and create brackets that match the theme of the room. For example, try glued-together kitchen utensils for an eye-grabbing set of brackets in the kitchen. Or how about gluing old video cassettes to a thin metal bracket for a shelf next to the TV? You can also take cheap brackets and decorate them. Try attaching CDs onto brackets for a striking stereo shelf or sticking ribbons and bows on a plain shelf bracket in a little girls room? The skys the limit. Go wild with some decorative shelf brackets.
Update Your Kitchen With a Shelf Pot Rack Your kitchen is one of the busiest places in your house, so every area and station in it should give way to function and form at the same time. Make your kitchen space more productive with a shelf pot rack - it is a great way to store your pots and pans and have extra shelf space at the same time. Most pot racks are simply mounts with hooks wherein you hang your pots or other cookware. A sturdy shelf can be designed to have hook mounts underneath it so that it transforms into a great pot rack, too. There are so many more things that you can do with a shelf pot rack. There is the added convenience of a wider hanging area for your pots, so that they are not piled on top of each other - this makes for much easier grabbing when you cook. The shelf itself is open for a very wide variety of uses. You can use it as a shelf for your cookbooks or recipe cards, since paper does not agree very well with other kitchen condiments. Or alternatively, you could use it to store frequently used spices. It could also be a piling area for smaller pots or bowls that you would also use for cooking. You can place just about anything on this additional storage space. Your wall mount pot rack can be made of any material, including wood, copper, or metal. The final decision will depend on your preference or the style of your kitchen. If you will be hanging a sizeable amount of cookware, then it is best to get a double shelf pot rack made of steel or copper, since these can support heavier weights. Otherwise, wood (with metal or copper hooks and attachments) will be an equally attractive and quaint option. A shelf on top of your rack can also become an instant decorating tool. Simply place a vase of herbs, a can of open pasta, or anything pretty which you can also use in your cooking forays. It will instantly light up your kitchen and make it look more professional and warm at the same time. A shelf pot rack is truly the best way to update your kitchen and introduce more function and design into it. This kind of storage space is preferred and used by professional cooks in performance kitchens and restaurants. Now you can opt to have its benefits right in the heart of your kitchen.
