> Wall-mounted shelves are an attractive, useful and versatile item that can bring any plain walls to life, as well as covering up unsightly marks or holes.
> Wall shelves add interest in areas such as your bedroom and lounge but can also be handy in the laundry, garage or pantry.
> Replacing or adding shelves is a simple trend update which can be easily swapped out later or painted to suit new decor.
> Depending on weight, a wall shelf can be mounted anywhere you choose (heavier shelves or items will require fastening to a wall stud). > The items you choose to place on your shelves can add extra colour to a space or simply give you a fun way to show off some objects that are important to you.
> Wall shelves leave the floor uncluttered by storage and don’t hinder room circulation compared to freestanding cabinets.
> Keep a duster or soft cloth handy to keep your wall display spick and span.
