They are a way to save space in the home and are also useful for decorating spaces. These can be available in different colors, sizes and shapes. In this way, they can be combined with the rest of the decorative elements in the room.

How to choose a floating shelf for your home?

When you are going to buy a floating shelving unit for your home, there are several things to keep in mind. This will allow you to not only choose one that goes well with the design, but also one of great quality. Below, we will tell you what are the three points that you should keep in mind.


The material of the shelf plays an important factor not only in how it looks, but also in its durability. The cheapest ones on the market are made of chipboard or MDF. This is a light material and of a good quality, although it requires several cares in order to keep it in good condition.

The material par excellence for the elaboration of shelves is wood. There are many woods that can be very good, but one of the favorites is oak. It is characterized by its great durability, beauty and resistance.

Another thing you should consider is the design, as this is going to be the main point. You will surely want a beautiful shelf, but not only that, but also one that matches the rest of the decoration.

There are floating shelves, others that go from floor to ceiling or have artistic shapes. You should choose the one that best suits the rest of the design you have in the room.


This is another very important factor and that is, when choosing a good wall shelf. You should measure the space you have available, so as not to choose one that is bigger than it should be. In this way, you will be able to avoid mistakes that will lead you to discard the shelf and lose your money.
