Good BuyMOHAMMED H.Very nice and modern, easy to install.5
Easy to install.GAILEasy to install.5
Lack(ing) in overall qualityPoCoHomeOwnerThe shelf is fine, it is the mounting apparatus and design that rates this product so low. Firstly, the bracketing system is not designed with the 16inch/40cm joist spacing so you are going to miss most of the hard anchor points. There are no screws or attachments included in the purchase either. Then when you do manage to anchor it to the wall and put the shelf on, it is not level and slopes downward at a noticeable angle. I have to purchase additional brackets just to keep it up. Stay away unless you want to spend additional time and money making this a good investment.2
Does NOT come with everything you need to install!RedHagarI was surprised to find an Ikea product that does NOT come with the screws you need to mount this shelf to the wall so beware! I assume they decided not to include all the hardware you need based on if you mount to drywall with anchors (terrible idea for a shelf this big), wood screws for joists (absolute requirement for this shelf) or concrete screws/anchors for brick/concrete walls (probably not too many people doing that). I had to go out and buy some screws and figure out how many I needed - the instructions say 8, I used 6. As others have mentioned, the holes for the mounting plate do not align with any North American standards for joist distances so I also had to go buy a drill bit so I could drill my own holes. I found that centering it on my wall allowed me to cross 3 joists (2 of which the holes aligned with). Drilling 2 more holes let me screw the plate securely into 3 joists - with that done, there's really no point in adding more screws on the ends of the mounting plate. The shelf was also very difficult to slide onto the mounting plate poles - you definitely need another person to help as the poles move around and don't align as well as I hoped. Overall, it looks great when it's up but it's a lot of effort to get it there! It looks great with LED lights below it (not quite enough room to put them between the shelf and the wall).3
Killer SystemsI bought this for my business To display products on very nice shelf5
It"s Zoom-tasticYeezyThis wall shelf upgraded how my living room / work-from-home space looks for such a reasonable price. Comfortably holds a potted plant, a medium sized painting a few books (be sure to use the appropriate screws-which you have to buy on your own). Feels nice to it off as a Zoom background.5
Looking good but already saggingJames459These shelves look great, but the bracket system is not very strong. In less than a year they are already sagging! Yes I made sure to only put the recommended weight on them [which isn’t much as all] & Yes I secured them into studs with appropriate screws. And there are many posts online that these shelves sag very easily.2
Received Damage ShelfKerry142The shelf itself is lightweight and looks simple enough to install, however, since I received completely damaged, it won't be going up. I completely understand that things are tricky right now with the pandemic, but the phoneline doesn't work, email isn't an option, and the live chat is always occupied. I'm hoping leaving a review will mean someone will reach out to me.1
Jrock666Love it! Have to come back and get more.5
GoodTam001I bought this last month. It’s pretty sturdy, looks good4
It’s alrightEM501It works as a shelf. But it slopes downward at an angle no matter how tight I make the bracket to the wall. & yes they are in the studs. Also don’t like how the bracket holes aren’t placed 16” apart for standard studs. Little pricey too, didn’t like how it was $5 more for the colour difference from the white shelf. But it works as a mediocre simple shelf.3
Perfect wall shelvesTolitsLooks good on our wall perfect colour match for the cabinet5
Useful ShelfLurch72The only issue I have with this shelf is the fact that the predrilled holes are not 16 on center like all newer home are built in Canada. Other than this the shelf is working great.4
Poor design of wall bracket!macopeSo I am sure that the shelf will look okay when it finally is attached to the wall. But here in Canada the majority of houses are 16 on centre, not 12. They need to add more holes to wall bracket. As others have written, you need to drill extra holes to get it fit. Product is surely designed for other parts of the world with brick or concrete walls.1
Not as sturdy as believedAnonymous reviewerI have three of these throughout my house. They are all affixed to at least one wall stud. I used wall anchors for each other screws not in a stud. One has stuffed animals on it with some picture frames and it’s sagging. One had picture frames and a few books (which I specifically measured to be very much under the weight limit) and it’s sagging badly. So badly that brackets were useless. The other one, I have a few photos on it and it’s fine so far. Based on my one ruined wall, don’t trust these shelves to hold up anything more than photos frames.3
Perfect shelving!123easeLooks amazing! Surprisingly a perfect fit in the cubby where the dining cabinet is suppose to sit... looks built in!!5
Great for maximizing space.Cade01134I installed several around the ceiling to hold books and stuff. Since they come in various lengths they’re quite versatile with where you can mount them. It’s best to find studs (wood in the wall) to hold it instead of relying on drywall anchors. I drilled a few holes in the bracket so I could screw to every stud.5
CaymoIt could be a very nice shelf if it wasn’t made so cheap !! I had to buy fancy brackets to install under it for support. It says it can support up to 33 lbs I wouldn’t trust putting 10 lbs without support under it.1
Great display shelfDalyhHappy with my purchase. Looks great!4
Mounting plate could be better engineeredAnonymous reviewerMost walls are built with the studs @ 16 apart. All the holes on the mounting bracket are @ 12. Makes it imposible to secure on studs. I had to drill 6 extra holes on the metal bracket. so I could capture the studs. With a 18lbs capacity if mounted to drywall and 44lbs if it is fixed to the studs. On such a long shelf. You will want to have maximum capacity.3

Function solution

How much weight can a shelf hold?

Even a strong wall shelf will only be able to bear a little weight if it's attached to the wall with the wrong hardware. For a wall shelf to be practical and secure you must use the right hardware for the wall type. Check if your walls are concrete, plaster or wood. There are hardware for all wall types. If you can, try to determine what part of the wall is load-bearing. The most secure place to mount a shelf is on the bearing part of the wall.


What is constructed board?

We use constructed boards when manufacturing many of our pieces of furniture, such as tables and wardrobes. They are light and resource-efficient, yet still stable and strong. Each board has a frame made of chipboard, fibreboard or solid wood, while the inside is a honeycomb filling structure made of mostly recycled paper, which is extra durable thanks to its special construction. The board is then covered with a protective paint, foil or veneer depending on the style wanted.
