This is our most extensive selection of ceramic shelves. Three sizes, technically 10 choices, and dozen of ceramic tile color choices. Primarily for use in the bathtub or shower area.
Mostly rectagular shelves with or without decorative mounting brackets. Lots of sizes. Brackets are decorative mounts. A couple of choices in corner shelves also. For any room of the house.
Rock Solid produces quarter circle and triangular bathroom corner shelves in 4 sizes each, either smooth top or with soap drain grooves, and in a humungous number of solid surface colors.
At one time, we had a full selection of granite shelves and other granite products. But that manufacturer did go out of business. We had kept high stock on the shelves. What we have left is shown on this page. All are brand new. They have just been in our inventory for many years.
The slab drawer front selections from Woodmont Doors can be used as wood shelves. They would be 3/4" thick, the depth and length are controllable factors by you. You can order them in whatever size you need to the sixteenth of an inch. You could get them in oak, maple, or cherry, and then either finished or unfinished. They will be a little more expensive than the typical cheesy vinyl covered particle board shelves you will find in retail stores. Some will have a tiny edge detail to them other than just square. It is a nice way to get a custom size solid wood shelf of high quality. Wood shelves are not the typical toss them in the shopping cart type items. You can call or e-mail us to discuss what you need.
When considering using the wood drawer fronts as wood shelves, this would definitely be for totally custom applications. With the wood drawer fronts, there are several slab choices shown with the various cabinet door styles. They will be solid wood shelves in real maple, red oak, or cherry. You can get them unfinished or finished. The finished options would be limited to the finish choices that Woodmont Doors offers for each wood choice. And then of course, the shelves would be made to the sixteenth of an inch. This is what we mean by totally custom. They will be the exact size you ask for.
Now this of course is a more expensive shelf that what you would find at The Home Depot or Lowe's. They have some premade shelves in a few sizes. One or two sizes do not fit all. But of course theirs would be lower priced. You could also purchase wood planks from either of those stores. They both will have a clear pine or clear fir wood, starts out very blonde, usually free of knots. Can easily be cut to length, a bit trickier cutting them down in depth unless you have a table saw, and then you can sand and stain them the way you would like. You can generally also find oak and cedar planks there too. Oak is a great hardwood. Cedar is an easy to work with wood, but quite often one side is rough cut. Normally you do not find the cedar with two smooth sides. It would take some effort to finish it. But Cedar is a awesome tone wood. Really nice when you just clear coat it, especially Red Cedar.
So when you combine your own wood plank or one made for you with the Expo Design shelf brackets designed to hold the 3/4" thick wood shelves, you can make some interesting and decorative storage or presentation space in your home. Just watch the depth of the shelves that you make, especially if in hallways. The farther they stick out, the easier it is to walk into them. That would go for the glass shelf kits too. Glass pieces are available up to a 12" depth. That is a big shelf.
As time permits and we start to research items, we hope to add some nice designer and decorative shelf brackets to our selections. The shelf standards and knife-bracket style systems can be found at Home Depot and Lowes. Our goal will be to add something fancier. Not a rush project, but something we have in mind.
And we like those floating thick wood shelves we have been seeing that look like steps. If we can find a good source for those, we will add them.
