Small home interior design: Why floating wall shelves are better than bracket shelves's Projects

Ask any interior design company to choose between floating wall shelves and bracket, they would prefer the earlier. This is due to the elegant look and minimalist emphasis of floating wall shelves that all supporting brackets are hidden.

But does the outlook justify the functionality?

The answer is yes. Since floating wall shelves are hidden steel brackets fixed tightly to the wall by screws, it can hold more heavy-duty materials. Moreover, in comparison to traditional bracket wooden shelves, floating wall offers more range of materials such as steels or cooper which are more durable and last longer.
