Floating shelves- a timeless addition to your home aesthetic
Floating shelves will adorn your corners, alcoves, and empty walls while successfully storing household items, ornaments, or devices. Do you want to create an accent wall? Floating shelves are the answer. You’re redecorating and you don’t want to spend a lot of money? Start with redecorating your wall shelves. Do you need a storage solution? Find an empty wall and add some floating shelves. You can find a use for a floating shelf in any room in the house. Yes, that includes your garage.
There’s no other storage furniture piece that will help you achieve a cleaner look. Getting a consistent feel for any home aesthetic is effortless when using wall shelves, and the fact that they’re not taking up floor space is the cherry on top.
Use floating shelves to make an entrance
If your hallway wall is empty and boring, but you also need storage for your scarves, bags, and hats, explore our floating shelves collection and you’ll find numerous options that are perfectly designed to fit in your entryway. Whether you need narrower ones, with invisible mounting systems or shelves that can provide a substantial amount of storage, you’ll find them at vidaXL in a variety of styles, materials, and colours.
Instead of storing your household items, you can transform your entry shelf into a decorative piece by showcasing artwork, picture frames, or a collection of travel souvenirs. Or, maybe have a wall cube shelf where you can mix and match random items with art pieces and small plants. Decorative baskets are perfect for storing items you wouldn’t want to be seen on your floating shelves.
Decorate your living room with floating shelves
From a wall cabinet to a wall shelf set, you have plenty of floating shelf styles to choose from when decorating your living room. Sure, if you want ample storage space and drawers to place your media player, remotes, CDs, DVDs, and magazines, you probably need a wall cabinet. On the other hand, if you only want to place your TV on the floating shelf, a simple, floating one would suffice. However, make sure both are secured correctly.
At vidaXL, we have wall shelf sets that come with individual shelf units. Naturally, you can use those separately or together. Have fun placing them on different walls and in various combinations to suit your interior design.
Give some space to your kitchen with wall shelves
Most kitchens are crammed with pots, pans, cutlery, measuring cups, various kitchen utensils, and everything in between. You simply never have too much storage space in the kitchen. If you doubt that your cookware will look good displayed on a floating shelf, you’ll say yes to displaying your cooking books, all those mugs you kept collecting over the years, or those colourful kitchen jars.
Moreover, with a little effort, you can even transform your kitchen floating shelves into a design feature. Add potted plants and unique pieces that fit in well, and avoid that cluttered look. One thing we recommend is making sure that the wall shelves you choose for your kitchen are easy to clean. You’ll find a wide variety of floating shelves that are durable and easy to clean at vidaXL.
Create a reading corner with a wall shelf unit
Compared to wall cabinets, wall shelves allow you to see your books’ titles, therefore you’ll be tempted to read more often. Do you have a smaller book collection? Your books would look great displayed on wall cube shelves. At vidaXL you’ll find wall cube shelves with more or fewer open compartments.
If you literally have a corner to make use of for creating a cosy reading nook, there’s nothing better than a wall corner shelf to display all your favourite books in one place. All you need is a relaxing armchair to go along with it and you’re all set.
A hanging geometric bookshelf would look great above the bed or in the kids’ room, above your kid’s desk. It’s a great way to make kids more excited about doing homework. When storage boxes and storage chests are not enough to store every little thing in your kid’s room, wall-mounted shelves with a lot of compartments are also great for storing toys, games, or collectibles.
Store your toiletries on floating shelves
Whether you want to fill the space above the sink or place the toilet paper above the toilet within easy reach, floating shelves will save you. Toughened glass shelf panels are ideal for bathrooms, but you can install them in any other room with a modern look.
How can you decorate your bathroom shelves? Display cotton balls and cotton buds in pretty containers, add some scented candles, roll matching towels and place them in small wicker baskets. You can also store your makeup items and hair tools in baskets if you don’t want to showcase them on the shelves as they are. Repurposed glass jars are perfect for holding your makeup brushes. You shouldn’t forget artificial or real potted plants if you want to give your bathroom a fresh look.
For a clean look, avoid putting too many items on the wall shelf, leave some space between accessories and make sure you diversify with a mix of practical and decorative items.
Use floating shelves to create a focal point
It doesn’t take much to make a floating shelf look good. You can make the most of your walls and make a statement by the mere use of a floating shelf. Imagine how black floating shelves would contrast a white wall. That in itself can be the perfect foundation for creating a focal point. From art pieces to aesthetic hardcover books and family photos, you can use a variety of elements to customize a statement shelf.
Using individual shelves of different sizes will have the same attention-grabbing effect. You can create a statement shelf in any room by simply placing it on whichever wall you want to call attention to and then decorating it according to your preferences and interior design style. Dead wall space in a room can be your perfect canvas. You don’t even need a lot available. At vidaXL we have an impressive collection of narrow floating shelves for you to choose from.
That’s not to say that you cannot still use the same shelf for functional purposes. Again, decorative baskets, boxes, or small containers are perfect for storing everything you need while keeping things organized in one place and hiding the clutter.
How to choose the right material for your floating shelves
Available in a wide variety of materials, from engineered wood to aluminium, floating shelves will suit any look and make the most efficient use of space. For a cohesive look, the material needs to blend in with the rest of the furniture in the room. Here at vidaXL, floating shelves are widely available in a huge range of materials, including:
If you’re looking for a long-lasting, durable material, maybe even moisture resistant, engineered wood is your best choice. You can also count sustainability among the proven benefits of wooden furniture. Since a lot of our wooden shelves are handmade, the wood grains and the exquisite craftsmanship make every piece of furniture one-of-a-kind. These are benefits you wouldn’t want to miss.
Temperature and direct contact with water can affect wood, so keep that in mind if you’re thinking about placing wooden shelves in your bathroom. There’s always the option to go with glass shelves for your bathroom, but if you really want wood, teak performs well as a bathroom shelving material.
Generally, glass is the preferred material for bathroom and laundry room shelving, but glass shelves look just as wonderful in living rooms, dining rooms, and kitchens. Glass not only looks clean and sophisticated, but it’s also easy to clean. However, keep in mind that glass is still a delicate material, even if it’s tempered safety glass.
Imagine a trophy shelf or a set of glass shelves to hold all your drinks and glassware. In a modern interior, you could decorate your glass shelving with books and contemporary art pieces. Or maybe you like the idea of displaying all your plants on a glass shelf in the kitchen. Whatever you prefer, know that vidaXL carries dozens of glass shelf options, no matter the budget you're working with.
If you’re looking for a high-quality material that can be just as strong as wood, but you want a cost-effective solution, put MDF at the top of your list. MDF shelves are durable and easy to clean. Styling a minimalist look becomes effortless when you choose MDF floating shelves with an invisible mounting system to store and display your items. The floating look does the trick.
From black to white, grey to brown, or red to blue, at vidaXL we have MDF floating shelves in a variety of colours. MDF shelves generally blend in very well with modern, retro, and Scandinavian interiors.
When you think of metal shelves you immediately think of an industrial design interior. You can either go for solid metal or choose a combination of wood and metal. Whatever you like better, a metal shelf is always a perfect addition to every industrial interior. If you want a piece of furniture with personality, look no further than our handmade floating shelves. The particular shape, grain, and colour will add to that unique look.
