The Shelf Brackets We Use

Floating shelf brackets

We use 4 different types of brackets at Shelf Expression.  Whether you're looking for something heavy duty to store your pots and pans on, or something that fits your steam punk motif, we have the bracket for you!  Please read carefully, though, as not all brackets are available to be used for all woods.

Selecting your bracket is the 1st step in your shelf building process.  For the 2nd step, visit our wood description page.  And for the last step, visit our finish selection page.

Heavy Duty Hidden Hovr Brackets 

hovr brackets

The Hovr Bracket System uses a male and female bracket that interlock and screw together to form unparalleled strength. This bracket system uses aluminium extrusion for production and the average load capacity is 300lbs.

Compare this to the the current standard for floating shelves and other floating solutions. The current standard is designed with a 2-prong system. This design causes major weaknesses within the floating solution. The average load capacity is 50lbs.

Hovr brackets can be combined with our 4 hardwood options of walnut, cherry, white oak, and hard maple.

Installation Is Oh, So, Simple

It really is. We supply ALL the hardware required to mount your shelves to your wall. We even include the necessary bits to complete the installation. Watch the installation video to learn more. Be sure to test the stud finder on yourself, first.

Wooden Dowel Rod Hidden Bracket

We create a floating shelf bracket out of the actual shelf.  The back 1.5" of your shelf will be separated from the front.  We then use oak dowel rods to support the res of the shelf.

The 1.5" thick shelf bracket is then installed onto your wall using the included hardware and drill bit, then slides onto the oak dowel rods and provides a seamless look.

This bracket type is capable of holding 20 pounds for each stud it's installed on.
