Our Floating Shelves are 33mm in thickness and made in locally sourced solid Tasmanian Oak. 

These beauties are perfect for all rooms and our unique installation method means that they can hold more weight then most Floating Shelves on the market (up to 25kg per timber wall stud they are secured into).

Display your books, frames and special pieces on these minimal look shelves. Our Floating Shelves are handmade with premium local timber and are available in 3 widths, and a number of lengths.

We are very excited to now be offering a beautiful range of styling products to go with your shelving. View the range here

We recommend our Floating Shelves are installed by a qualified Tradesman as they must be installed into timber wall studs or brick to hold the weight. We supply metal rods for the install (not prong brackets). If you would like holes pre-drilled into your Floating Shelf please leave us a note at checkout with the measuments you would like drilled (wall stud locations) or if your wall is brick or tiles we dont need a measurements, we will drill them in proportion to the shelf size. Please read the FAQs below for more information.

Please note different tradesman will install things differently and may want to use different fixings depending on the position of the wall studs and if the studs are wooden or steel. The Timber Line do not take any responsibility for issues arising in the installation. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

The local installation fee is per shelf.

Please note that as each piece is handcrafted, woodgrain will vary slightly from pictures. Also, the price is for one shelf only and does not include styling items.

Yes, we provide metal rods for installation into timber wall studs and brick walls.

How long will my order take?

Can your Floating Shelves be installed into brick and tiles?

They certainly can. Our install method works perfectly for brick and they will drill right through tiles to your wall studs.

How do you install your Floating Shelves?

We recommend metal rods for install (which we supply). We use these as they hold the most amount of weight. Full instructions are included with your order. Once you place your order a link to view the instructions will be included in your confirmation email.

Are holes pre-drilled into the timber ready for install?

No, but they can be. We offer this service free of charge. Just leave us a note at checkout with the measuments you would like drilled (wall stud locations) or if your wall is brick we dont need any measurements, we will drill them in proportion to the shelf size.

How much weight do your floating shelves hold?

Up to 25kgs per every wall stud they are secured to. All of our standard shelf lengths require at least 2 rods installed, larger ones even more. So the smaller shelves will hold 50kg, bigger shelves more, it depends on the size you order.

Are the shelves varnished?

Yes they sure are, twice. We use a top grade non toxic varnish that has a clear finish to keep the raw appearance and feel of the timber. The varnish is also kitchen and bathroom grade.

Why dont you use traditional brackets?

We dont recommend the traditional brackets (the bar with the two poles attached) because they dont hold alot of weight. Most approx. 10kg per bracket. Our method will hold up to 25kg per rod installed. So if you use a minimum of two rods thats 50kgs minimum. However, this is only our recommendation and you can use the traditional bracket if you or your tradesperson prefers. It is also the only option for steel framed houses.

Can your shelves be used in a steel framed house

They can, but the install method is up to you are your tradesperson. The rods we supply and recommend are only for wooden framed homes and brick. But why? this comes down to weight. As our timber is solid, we want you to be able to store as much as you would like on your shelf without worrying about weight. It is still possible for steel framed homes to purchase our shelves (many do!) using a traditional bracket but it depends on the strength of your plaster, and not something we can comment on without actually inspecting your walls. A tradesperson will be able to help if you are unsure. If you would like to purchase our shelves but your house is steel framed, send us an email and we will help as much as we can to make it work for you.

Can you remove Floating Shelving?

It is possible, but its also dependent on the adhesive you use. But please bare in mind there will be holes left in the wall.

Can I order a timber sample?

You certainly can! Please head the the samples page to make your order.
