We cut our solid oak floating shelf range from wide American White Oak stock. Planed square on all sides and finished by hand, all of our solid oak floating shelves are handmade to order. We hand paint the edge of the shelf in your chosen colour from the Farrow and Ball range, using a process that preserves the oak grain pattern in the finish. This makes our edge painted oak floating shelf range perfect for complementing an existing colour scheme or interior design project. The remainder of the shelf is finished in a subtle, satin wax oil to enhance the wood’s natural colour. Use them to display your favourite ornaments and keep your must have books close to hand. Even fill an alcove with them for masses of practical yet beautiful storage.
We make our floating wall shelves in a range of depths and cut them to your specified width, suitable for solid, plasterboard and dot and dab walls. We produce this shelf in 44mm thick solid oak. (If you’d prefer one that’s thinner, take a look at our new slimline version). For each type of painted oak floating shelf detailed below we can provide widths from 20cm to 150cm.
To order, simply select your fixing type and shelf depth. Then enter your measurements into the width box to calculate the shelf price. Add to your basket and we’ll do the rest. We cut your oak floating shelves to the exact size you specify. We pre-drill the mounting holes as appropriate and carefully finish the shelves by hand. Our team then send your order out to you with all the necessary fixings for simple home installation.
Solid Wall Shelves
Depths from 100mm to 400mm are available with our solid wall oak floating shelves. We supply shelves 300mm deep and above with our heavy duty floating shelf brackets. Our multi wall floating shelf brackets are supplied with the depths up to 250mm. All solid wall shelves are pre drilled and fixings are supplied.
Dot and Dab Wall Shelves
Depths from 100mm to 250mm are available with our dot and dab wall shelves. The longer thread section of our multi wall concealed floating shelf bracket ensures a secure fixing into the solid portion of a dot and dab wall. All dot and dab wall shelves are pre drilled and fixings are supplied.
Due to the limitations of fixing solely to plasterboard walls, our plasterboard oak floating shelves are only available up to a depth of 150mm. If you are looking to fit a larger depth of shelf on a plasterboard wall we recommend that your fixing points are aligned with stud work. Please contact us to discuss requesting this. All plasterboard shelves are pre drilled and fixings are supplied.
Bare Wall Shelves
We also supply our wall shelves without fixings so you can use your own traditional brackets. (Please note this means we will not pre-drill any holes or supply any fixings if you choose this option). These are available in depths from 100mm to 400mm.
