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 Versatile 3 Shelf Bookcase A very popular style of bookcase is the 3 shelf bookcase. It is compact enough to fit in any type of location, providing there is some space for it. It can be used for storing books, or for displaying collectibles or other decorative objects. You can also find some that are suited to mount on a wall. Usually you can find this type of bookshelf for a very reasonable price. They are carried by most major stores, including Target, Home Depot, Lowes, Home Office and many other similar stores. A cheaper bookcase can often be bought for as little as $15 to $20, with most of the moderately priced bookcases only costing around $30 to $40. Of course, these are not made from high grade hard wood, but they will usually suffice and will last as long time if properly cared for. More expensive bookcases, such as those made from mahogany or oak, are also readily available although you may want to check out actual furniture stores if you are planning on spending a substantial amount of money for one. While all bookcases can be classified as furniture, the hardwood bookcases are more high end furniture where often the piece of furniture itself is on display as much as the articles resting on the shelves. You should be expected to pay at least $100 for a good quality 3 shelf bookcase, or possibly even more for a higher end one. Remember too, if shipping for 3 shelf bookcases online, that you will also need to pay additional costs, in most cases, for shipping. Some stores will allow you to order online and then go to a branch of their store nearby to pick up the item. If this is an option for you, it can help to keep the costs of purchasing a cheaper bookcase down quite low. Other online stores will offer free shipping for order over a certain amount. If you have the bookcase shipped to you, it is likely that you will need to assemble it yourself. Thankfully, this is usually a relatively simple task that almost anyone with a screwdriver, and a set of instructions before them, should be able to accomplish. The 3 shelf bookcase is not only functional, but it can also add to your overall decor. It is relatively cheap, and due to its smaller size, it will usually fit into most rooms without any problem.
