Ratings and reviews

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
Jrock666Love it! Have to come back and get more.5
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
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
Good storageNice008I am happy with this purchase4
Versatile wall shelfTeaWI bought 3 shelves in total. 2 we use under our wall mount tv as storage for sound system and dvds. The other I use above the bed for lighting and decor. Excellent price point and clean, attractive finish.5

Perfect for dining room and toy room!Elli FanWe have bought six of these shelves, the first one we used for our dining room and we lived the simple and modern look. When we needed a Lego storage solution for the toy room, we put five of them up on two walls to display Lego sets. Multi-function and great look and value!5

Lack wall shelfAiramthMy son likes it a lot, this is the second one we have purchased.4
Display shelfLondon1Star Wars lego has never looked so good. Love my lack shelves. Have many and have never been disappointed. The only thing I might add is a little groove on the upper side to stop pictures from sliding forward.5

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.
