Tips For Buying Wall Unit Shelving

If you want to add wall unit shelving to your home you have many choices. You can choose from oak, pine, cherry, birch and many other woods. The most popular wood used is oak because it is inexpensive, beautiful and easy to maintain. There are many different styles and sizes of wall shelving units for walls.

oak Bookcase Wall Unit – This was a beautifully built solid oak wardrobe from an old victorian home which has now been converted into a 3 story open bookcase with wall unit shelving. Solid oak with cedar drawers. A very pretty and durable piece. It will keep your valuable books where they belong.

Pine Wall Shelving – Another great choice is pine wall unit shelving. It is light and beautiful and perfect for the green minded people. I love the way pine looks in the outdoors. It blends in well and can be painted to match your home.

Cherry Wall Shelving – This is an attractive wood that is great for the kitchen. I love the way it blends in with the kitchen but I am not much of a big fan of the paint. It would look better on an oak or maple desk top. I think it would look better on a wall.

Birch Wall Shelving – This is a great choice as well. It comes in a white color but depending on the amount of wood you use it could end up being a color other than white. Great for an alcove wall for displaying your favorite books and curios.

As you can see, there are many options when it comes to wall shelving. They come in all sizes, shapes, styles, colors, and materials. Just make sure you know what you want before you start shopping. Go to a home improvement store or check online for more options.

When deciding on what type of wall unit shelving to get you should also consider where it will be placed. If you put it on top of cabinets then it should go well with the rest of your room. On the other hand, if you plan on putting the shelving in an open area like a breakfast nook or in a kitchen then go with a style that will complement it.

Also, if you decide to go with the floating option make sure that your wall shelf is securely attached to the support rods. Some models may require screws or nails so if this isn’t something that you want to do don’t do it. Some shelving units are meant to attach using glue. If this is the case make sure that you read the directions carefully so that you don’t damage the wall underneath. Many people have had minor issues with the glue occasionally making it weak and even damaging the paint.

In summary, wall unit shelving is a great way to spruce up your home by giving you more storage space. Before you buy make sure to check out the available styles and colors and how they will fit into your decor. Consider the location where you plan to put it and whether or not the wall studs will allow the shelving to sit properly. Finally, read the instructions included with the shelving to make sure that you are able to assemble it correctly.
