Shelf supports: great little solutions

The shelves, or shelves, are a solution that facilitates the order because they create new storage areas, something really important when you do not have much space. They are also decorative elements that can be added to the furniture you already have at home.

In order to place them, you need shelf supports, which are so versatile that they can be installed almost anywhere.

In the market there are different models of shelf supports, which can vary in shape, finish, material and the weight they support. They are available for small glass showcases as well as for large boards that have to support a lot of weight.

Before choosing a shelf support, it is necessary to determine the weight to be supported, usually specified on each product.

Types of shelf supports:

Pelican support

The most common ones on the market come in different shapes and are manufactured in different materials with a wide variety of finishes, such as nickel-plated, satin-finished, gold-plated or shiny chrome-plated. As they are available in different sizes, it is necessary to determine the size of the shelf they will support, as well as the weight of the objects that will be on them, so as not to make a mistake when choosing them.


Of all the types of shelf brackets are the most classic and sober, although they can be found with quite striking designs. It is very common to see them in houses with rustic or classic decorations.

This type of shelf holder is embedded in the furniture where it will be placed, being invisible they are widely used in modern and minimalist decorations. Their gripping capacity is impressive, so they support a lot of weight.
