Floating shelves are a sleek and simple storage solution. Their no-fuss design means that unsightly shelf brackets and nails are hidden, which works particularly well for modern or contemporary schemes. Most shelving designs are available in different lengths and widths, making floating shelves the ideal option to hang above alcoves and furniture. Available in a variety of colours, from white to natural wood, and a mix of materials to ensure there’s a style to suit all rooms. Glass floating shelves for instance would be perfect for a bathroom whereas classic white wood shelves can create a calming look for a study or home office. Whether you’re after simple wood shelving or in favour of more funky modern glass designs, whatever the room, be inspired by our pick of the best floating shelves…
