Although floating or quasi-floating shelves are generally designed to look lightweight, with the right design and installation elements, they can be sturdy and weight-bearing, as well as any conventional shelf. There are many options available in Cvm Contractors, from true floating shelves, to less expensive floating platforms, as well as shelves with built-in lights or shelves that work around the corners.

Built-in elegance with floating shelves

The "real" floating shelves; They are hanging from posts that are screwed into the concrete layer of the wall.

First we started the existing drywall, we made custom metal supports and then screwed them into the concrete layer of the wall. Then we rebuild on the wall with Venetian plaster, leaving only the messages coming out. Then we slide the floating walnut shelves onto the posts. This allowed a solid support like a rock, without visible support means.

These shelves are compatible with thin metal wall straps painted to match the wall behind it; This is a good alternative to the more expensive "real" floating shelves, and it generally works well when there are many things to put on the shelves (it does not work as well when the shelves are free, since the straps would be noticed). The shelves are walnut stained dark.
