Installing your Floating Shelves
Because all of our floating shelves come with their own brackets, installing them is a job that almost anyone can do. And the brackets are all custom made with only the best technique and materials, so you do not have to worry about any part of your new purchase being anything less than the highest quality. What follows are some tips for installing your new floating shelves.
- When choosing the placement for your brackets, note that they are best mounted in studs or blocking.
- Install the brackets first, according to stud placement, and following the method detailed on this page.
- If you opted for pre drilled holes just slide the shelf on, stand back and admire your handiwork!
- Otherwise drill the holes in your shelf using the Drill Guide Kit.
- This will make installation a breeze, and eliminates the need for a drill press.
- That’s it, you are ready to slide on your shelf!
- You can apply construction adhesive to the rods before installing the shelf for a permanent mount, although we rarely find it necessary.
