Wall skills

> 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.
