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.
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. Anywhere you need to protect a surface or keep something in place, try using shelf liner before you go out and buy some expensive product you dont need!
