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.
Five Unexpected Uses For Shelf Liner Shelf liner is a very versatile product. It is most commonly used according to its name - to line shelves. This is done to protect the wood of the drawer, to keep contents from shifting when drawers are opened and closed, or for decorative purposes. But shelf liner has many, many different uses. This article will look at five unexpected ones. 1.) Placemat Shelf liner can be used to keep dirt from tracking indoors. Simply cut a sheet the right size to fit inside the door, and place on the floor. The paper will work to trap dirt, mud and dust being tracked inside. And it can be changed frequently, and at low cost, when needed. 2.) Pot Protector If you have limited space, you probably find yourself stacking pots and pans in cabinets. This results in unsightly scratches on the metal and can damage them over time. Simply insert a sheet of shelf liner between each pot and pan, and the problem is solved. 3.) In the Bath If you have shelves in the shower that are constantly filling with mildew, soap residue and spilled shampoo, place a piece of shelf liner down. This will keep everything neat and in place, and it can be replaced whenever necessary. 4.) The Deck In the summer it is nice to have plants outside on the deck. But when the water from those plants trickles down to the wood it can create an expensive problem. By placing a layer of shelf liner beneath the plants, you will protect the wood of the deck and prevent what could be a very troublesome problem. 5.) Fidos Bowl If you have a pet, you have more messes to clean up than people who dont have pets. Whether a dog or a cat, both animals are messy when it comes to meal time. If this is a problem in your house, simply place a sheet of liner down under the bowls. This not only keeps the messy food and water stains from the floor, it also keeps the bowls in place - just like it keeps the contents of a drawer in place. Fido wont mind, and youll be saving yourself from headaches in the future. While inexpensive and often not considered more than once, shelf liner has proven itself to be a very versatile product. These are just a few suggestions. There are many more ways shelf liner can make your life better.
