Light Grey Floating Shelves Details

Our light grey floating shelves are perfect for trendy grey decors. Ideal for showcasing your photos and ornaments they appear to float on the wall.

Made of MFC Egger, your light grey floating shelf will have scratch resistant properties. The MDF core means you can still sand down as needed to fit uneven walls for a flush finish against a wall or for alcove shelving.

Invisible brackets are supplied with your order, you can choose between adjustable plate brackets with shelves greater than a thickness of 25mm, and standard screw brackets which are available for all thicknesses. Adjustable plate brackets are for plasterboard, masonry or woodwork and can be adjusted for levelling; you’ll need to supply your own screws and wall plugs to suit the wall material. Standard screw brackets are for masonry walls and no extra hardware such as screws are needed. Our customer support team are on hand to advise on installation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can light grey floating shelves hold much weight?

This depends on the size of the shelf, the wall material and the brackets and fixings used.

Unfortunately, we cannot tell you how much weight yours can hold as each one is made to measure and therefore the weight capacity will vary. Whether you are fixing to masonry, plasterboard or woodwork and the size of screws you choose will also affect the max load.

To hold the most weight we recommend fixing to a masonry wall with adjustable plate brackets and at least 50mm screws and wall plugs. It will hold considerably less weight if fixed to a plasterboard wall or studs.

Whatever the wall material or fixings used, it’s important to ensure weight load is evenly distributed to make full use of the weight capacity.

Are light grey floating shelves strong?

Again, this depends on the size, the wall material and the brackets and fixings used.

For example, if it is 1000mm wide x 300mm deep, fixed to a masonry wall with our adjustable plate bracket and 50mm screws, it would be very strong and would likely hold up to 26kg of weight.

Using smaller screws and fixing onto studs in a plasterboard wall will reduce the strength considerably.

Why should I buy light grey floating shelves from Cut My instead of IKEA or B&Q?

As well as being able to buy the exact size you need, our light grey floating shelves are of superior quality, made with FSC Certified Medite MDF. We start with a solid core construction and then route out some of the inner core for weight reduction. Cheaper high street alternatives are a hollow construction made of thin faces with a grid-like structure which is prone to warping and sagging.

Our Medite MDF construction makes them strong and long lasting, it also allows you to sand, plane or cut them at home so that they fit perfectly into alcoves with uneven walls, this isn’t possible with those you can buy in store. 

Can you buy a light grey floating shelf deeper than 250mm?

No, unfortunately, due to the stability, we cannot supply one deeper than 250mm.

Are brackets included?

Yes, brackets are included. If you choose adjustable plate brackets, screws and wall plugs are not included. Please ensure you use the correct size screws and wall plugs for your wall material. For masonry walls we recommend at least 50mm screws and wall plugs.

What brackets should I choose?

Adjustable Plate Bracket:

  • Suitable for woodwork, plasterboard, or masonry walls
  • Screws and wall plugs not included
  • Micro adjustments available for levelling

Standard Screw-Type Bracket:

  • Suitable for masonry walls
  • A simple installation that requires no additional hardware

How many brackets will I receive?

This will depend on the length and depth; we will supply you with the correct number of brackets leaving no more than 600mm between brackets.

Does this product come with screws?

No, if you select the adjustable plate bracket you won’t receive screws or wall plugs. For the standard screw bracket, the screw is a part of the bracket and the wall plug is provided so no extra hardware is needed. If using the adjustable plate bracket please ensure you purchase the correct screws and wall plugs for the wall material.

Can you put light grey floating shelves on plasterboard?

This is not recommended as the load capacity will be significantly reduced. If your only option is to fix to plasterboard, where possible fix to the studs and noggins in the wall for greater stability. If you cannot fix to the studs use specific fixings for plasterboard walls such as spring-loaded toggles or metal self-drill plasterboard fixings. Please choose the adjustable shelf bracket as this is the only bracket we supply that is suitable for plasterboard walls.

Can you put the holes for the brackets exactly where I need them?

If you would like custom bracket holes you must contact us with your requirements before placing your order to make sure we can accommodate your request. Please email info@cutmy.co.uk or call our customer services team on 01903 389024.

How do you attach them to a wall?

Using invisible brackets, these are screwed into the wall and then the light grey shelf slots over the rods to appear as though it's floating.

Is it hard to install light grey floating shelves?

No, not at all, simply attach the bracket to the wall and slide the light grey shelf onto the bracket. Please ensure you check the wall is clear from any electrical cables or plumbing before screwing the bracket to the wall. For best results use a spirit level when determining where the brackets should be fixed to the wall.

Will they warp over time?

This is highly unlikely because we start with a solid core construction and our 38mm and 50mm thick shelves are routed in the middle for weight reduction. Cheaper versions of floating shelves available in high street stores will warp over time as they are just thin faces with a grid-like structure on the inside which creates a hollow interior that is more likely to bow.

Ordered 2 floating shelves. Holes were drilled wrong, there was a ridge inside so that the brackets didn't go into them. Shame about the mess up but they refunded me and handled it well.

Shelf itself was good and well made, but came with adjustable brackets that did not fit into the back of the shelf. Maybe the standard ones do, but I was sent the adjustable ones and they didn't so the shelf would only go back to around 1 cm from flush with the wall. No answer on the customer service phone and the instgructions online arte clearly just wrong. Resorted to routing out the shelf to create space for the brackets to fit - OK if you have a router and don't mind the mess it made routing out mdf! Too much hasstle, no after sales service. Perhaps they are good at plastic, but don't buy the shelves...

Shelf looks great up and is good quality. On the whole I am pleased with this product. However, it is very expensive compared to those you can buy off the shelf. I was also disappointed to find that on unpacking the shelf it was dirty and needed a good clean. This is something that should be checked by quality control before packing. I would like to add that I used your on-line chat service prior to purchase to ask some questions and I found the person I was talking to be very helpful and knowledgeable.
