Top Shelf Hanging related questions

First, choose shelf support brackets and position their pre-drilled fastener holes over the brick (not the mortar in between bricks). Mark the positions of each hole, then drill. Insert masonry sleeves into the holes and hammer them into place. Then, hold the bracket to the wall and attach the fasteners. Finally, lay the shelf onto the bracket. You can also skip the risky DIY shelf hanging job by getting a shelf fitter on our platform.
For homeowners that aren’t allowed to drill into the walls, you can hang shelves using adhesive strips instead. It’s best to use light, hollow shelves for this purpose. But, these shelves have their limitations: they can only handle very light loads (usually 1.4kg or less). Shelf hanging typically requires drilling, to secure the items on the shelf as well as prevent the rack from falling. Consider putting up free-standing shelves instead, if you aren’t allowed to drill.
For a custom piece that fits your home correctly, choose a cut of wood yourself. Then, get mounting brackets, a power drill, drill bit, stud finder, carpenter’s triangle, and level. Choose a spot for the shelf, mark the holes and drill, install the brackets, then attach the wood. Sounds challenging? You can get a Tasker to help you out with shelf assembly, instead.
It’s easy: use a level when you do your shelf hanging job. This nifty little tool makes sure your shelf won’t be tilted when you mount it. As long as you use the level properly and mark the right positions on your wall, you can get your shelf to hang straight. If you need help putting up shelves in your home, you can book a Tasker for shelf hanging.
Putting a heavy shelf up on plasterboard is just like any other shelf mounting job, except that you’ll need a special kind of anchor. Handymen typically choose toggle bolts for projects like these, since they spread the weight of the shelf evenly throughout the wall. It’s also important to note that plaster walls are difficult to drill through due to their structure. For safety purposes, it’s best to work with a shelf hanging expert instead of doing this task yourself.
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this since there are many kinds of shelves: free-standing wooden bookcases, heavy-duty steel ones, floating shelves from your nearby hardware store, and so on. As a general rule, follow the manufacturer’s instructions when you do shelf assembly. You can get a friend or partner to help you out, or you can have a shelf assembly expert do it for you instead.

Suggested reads about Shelf Hanging

What do shelf hanging services include?

Common shelf installation services include building wardrobe and pantry shelves and hanging wall shelving. Your professional will ensure your shelf has the right fittings, angles, and is structurally sound. Popular shelf installation tasks include:

Install a floating shelf

A floating shelf is attached to a wall with no visible means of support, and are popular for their modern, minimalistic look. To begin installing your floating shelf, your handyman will assess the space and use a stud finder to mark the most secure spot for the brackets. They’ll use an electric drill to make a hole and secure the brackets, using a level to ensure everything lines up perfectly. Once the brackets are installed, they’ll measure the space between them and drill into the shelving to fit these exact measurements. Then they’ll slide the shelving into the brackets.

Install a hanging shelf

Your hanging shelf installer will make sure the best type of nail is used for your wall material and the best position to install your shelf. They will use a level if you’re installing more than one hanging shelf to ensure they’re mounted evenly. Your installer will advise how much weight the shelf will be able to bear and answer any questions you may have.

Install a wardrobe or pantry shelf

Your shelving installer will advise on the best kind of shelving to suit your space - fixed, adjustable, corner, floating, or pull out. They will then measure the space. If you’re hiring them to make the shelving too, they’ll let you know how long it will take them to build your custom shelving. Once the shelves are ready, they’ll use their tools to expertly screw your new shelves into place. If you opted for sliding or rotating shelves, they’ll ensure the shelves pull out smoothly.

Install a garage shelf

Getting your garage or workshop organised with shelving can help with storage and productivity. Your handyman will advise what type of shelving will best suit your space and align this with your weight-bearing requirements. With overhead shelving, your installer will attach the brackets to the ceiling where the joists are located -  this is the strongest point in your ceiling. 

Your handyman will properly measure the space for your overhead shelving and make sure it will not interfere with your garage door, lighting, and work area. They will then install your shelving, with the longest part going across the joists so that your new shelves will have the most support possible and not overburden the joists.

I have a big built in pantry that had no shelf when I moved in. What a silly idea of that. Any way I have persevered for 22 months and decided to get someone to do something for that empty space. I had few replies but went for Francois. What a gem I found. He was very thorough getting things measured and got all installed immaculately. Now I can store things in order and so much tidier my place is going to be. Thank you so much for your effort and professionalism Francois. Wishing you all the best in your business. Take care. cheers CP

I need one column of BOAXEL IKEA shelves installed today. Consist of two 2m wall rails and 6 shelves. Wall is brick. Hammer drill and masonry bit are a necessity, plus tool kit with level, tape measure etc. Suitable screws and plugs are also required for the job, I do not have my own. Shelves are being installed around a light fixture so confidence and experience are key requirements. Wire detector machine or knowledge of electrics in brick buildings important to this job. You may require a step ladder, but I have stools you can stand on. Installation looks straight forward, and should be a quick job for an experienced trades person. - Due date: Needs to be done on Sunday, 26 June 2022
