As you probably know available space in any environment whether residential or commercial is hard to come by these days. With the ever growing population it is no surprise there is progressive less and less space we have for use. At the same time what available space there is it comes at a price. For families this may mean needing to settle for a smaller home such as a 2 bedroom apartment. For businesses an office with a smaller floor space might have to do. With such spatial restrictions there is a need then to be more creative in using the space. Corners in any room are often difficult to utilize because of their awkward position. Hence corner shelves become perfect to alleviate this problem.
In the area of hanging shelves you have several choices when it comes to the style of brackets and hardware. A good rule of thumb is to use hardware well suited to the structure of the existing wall. Wall-mounted shelves with ready-made shelves and adjustable brackets are ideal for the laundry room pantry home office or your child`s room.
It`s important to look for shelving made from a durable material. Certain materials can`t bear too much weight and will crack or snap if heavy objects are kept on them so decide what you want to put on your shelves before you choose the material. The strongest shelving is made of steel. Some steel shelving is made with compartments.
Wall systems can be freestanding hanging modular adjustable or fixed just to name a few options available. There are corner units floating shelves hanging shelves track systems and fully adjustable wall units. The most flexible system is a track system.

You can tailor this style of shelving to fit your specific needs.
The basic parts of a floating shelf package are the internal bracket restraining screw and the shelf with holes that fit the internal bracket. Simple installation process involves measuring where to make holes drilling holes in the wall screw the inner bracket to the holes and last is sliding the shelf to the inner bracket fitting. After installing only the shelf will be visible and make sure to read the maximum capacity of the shelf to avoid accidents.
