All our floating shelves are made from the highest quality raw materials. The timber we use to produce each 300mm white shelf is sustainably sourced and manufactured in Europe, before being transported to our workshop in the UK, where it is cut to size by our skilled team and painted in New White - a light and warm shade by Farrow & Ball, our preferred paint manufacturers. These shelves are available now with FREE next-day delivery.
As a sturdy and durable timber, oak is the perfect choice for solid wood shelving, and is suitable for either your home or office. These 300mm painted shelves have a standard depth of 200mm, and - just like our worktops - are 40mm thick. Each shelf is constructed from a number of 40mm staves that are finger-jointed together and glued under high pressure, to ensure optimum strength. Our shelving is supplied with square edges and sanded to a silky smooth 150 grit before the paint is applied.
To prevent raising of the grain and prepare the surface for painting, we brush the sanded timber with a water-based primer, made of traditional alkyd resin. After this, two separate coats of the popular shade New White paint are applied, with plenty of drying time allowed to ensure a uniform appearance. The end product is an exceptionally stunning finish, that still allows a little of the wood's characterful grain texture to be seen.
For your convenience, the shelves come pre-drilled and ready mount upon the two specialist fixings provided. Due to the weight of the shelving, we recommend mounting them onto walls made from either solid brick or concrete blocks. If they are to be mounted on partition walls, be sure to fix the supports directly into the studs.
Our solid oak shelves are crafted from the highest quality raw material, ensuring that their strength, sturdiness and charm does not diminish with age. Unlike cheaper laminate alternatives, these shelves are manufactured from solid timber and — as is the nature of wood — small knots and splits may occasionally be present. Though this is extremely uncommon, it is considered a natural development in the timber and part of its unique character.
