The So Simple White Floating Wall Shelf

The So Simple Floating Wall Shelf is one of our most popular sellers, and it's easy to see why. Clean lines, a hidden mounting bracket, and your choice of three colors make this shelf perfect for almost any room and any decor. Floating wall shelves are a great way to bring a pop of personality to your home, and the So Simple Shelf can do almost anything you could ask for.

Perfect For:

  • Low weight electronics and Media Rooms
  • Displaying photos, books, or artwork
  • Fancy Cat perches
  • Bedside tables (careful with the weight capacity!)
  • Towel shelf for bathrooms
  • Media storage for home offices

The Bottom Line:

The So Simple Floating Wall Shelf isn't the strongest floating shelf in the world, so we wouldn't recommend putting extremely heavy or highly valuable items on it--i.e. microwaves, TVs or computers. That isn't meant to detract from the shelf's heartiness, because it can still support up to 20 lbs when mounted in drywall anchors or a stud. The So Simple Shelf is a wonderful way to add storage to a room without taking up any extra floor space. It's also ideal for showing off things like photos, artwork, and knick knacks without breaking the bank on expensive and cumbersome shelving units.

Dimensions:

  • 24" W x 6" D x 2" Thick
  • 24" W x 10" D x 2" Thick
  • 36" W x 10" D x 2" Thick
  • 48" W x 10" D x 2" Thick
  • 24" W x 12" D x 2" Thick


Weight Capacity
20 lbs. when bracket is properly mounted to the wall on studs or with drywall anchors.

Installation was relatively easy but after installing, the shelf is not very stable, it wobbles up and down. I purchased the 12X24 shelf and installed two on my wall.

The second I put something on it, the front of the shelf dipped down and is no longer level. I only put a cable box on it which is well under the weight maximum for these shelves.

Now I have to purchase L brackets to see if that will add some stability and keep the shelves level. This defeats the whole purpose of purchasing "floating" shelves.

DO NOT BUY!

Great value.

By 

from Dallas, TX

Comments about - So Simple White Floating Wall Shelf:

The shelves are an excellent value when you compare them to all shelves from other major retailers. Installation is rather easy, though you have to be sure you install the bracket the right way up as 1 of the 3 we have now dips slightly. Other than that they look great.

Service and delivery comments:

Service is outstanding as always from Smart Furniture.

Good shelf, some design issues though

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about - So Simple White Floating Wall Shelf:

Good solid shelf. It look great. However, getting to that point wasn't easy. The pre-drilled holes in the bottom of the shelf weren't big enough for the 2 screws provided. So I had to drill them out with a bigger drill bit. Once I did that, the screw went through without a problem.

Looks good, cheap hardware

By 

from SLC, UT

Verified Buyer

Comments about - So Simple White Floating Wall Shelf:

I bought four. The shelves look good. Installation would have been easy if the included hardware wasn't so cheap and flimsy. There are two included thin screws which are to be used to screw the shelf to the bracket. Those screws are so weak, it is too easy to bend and break them. Of the four shelves, three broke. I ended up using some other screws I already had. They work fine, but aren't white so slightly visible. Too bad, they are good solid shelves otherwise.

Quality floating shelves and excellent customer service.

By 

from Seattle

Verified Buyer

Comments about - So Simple White Floating Wall Shelf:

Installed 6, 48 inch long shelves. Put three on either side of the fireplace. Installation was easy The only problems encountered were some variations in the flatness and squareness of the walls. Some shims took care of this in short order.

These are well built shelves with excellent support brackets. The screws supplied with the shelves were pretty low grade and a few heads broke off. I just used a better quality screw.

I installed all six shelves in about an hour, and they look really good. (Mama is happy...)

Service and delivery comments:

Received one shelf with some shipping damage. Sent some pics the day these arrived. Customer service addressed the issue within the hour. A replacement shipped the next day. No problem.
Customer service was awesome. I will purchase from Smart Furniture again.

Not as Expected

By 

from Redington Shores FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about - So Simple White Floating Wall Shelf:

I ordered eight of the 6" x 24" shelves. I was able to secure the metal bracket to the wall, and was able to get a screw into stud (as recommended). Unfortunately I could not get the shelves to remain stable on the wall - there was too much 'give' between the metal bracket and the shelf itself, so I am returning all items.

Comments about - So Simple White Floating Wall Shelf:

I bought 2 24 " black floating shelves and it's one of the best on-line purchases I've made. They were easy to installl but it did require 2 people. They arrived well-packaged and in excellent shape. They're sturdy and look quite lovely in my diining room, holding knick-knacks.

These shelves are very easy to install and great value.

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about - So Simple White Floating Wall Shelf:

These shelves are light, good quality and although not wood, they look just as good as very expensive wood shelves. Easy to install. The only thing that was a little challenging is the small screw if not placed properly can easily bend.

These shelves create a great accent to a very large family room wall. I couldn't have imagined it to look any better.

Works okay. Some suggestions for improvement.

By 

from Louisville, KY

Verified Buyer

Comments about - So Simple White Floating Wall Shelf:

These work okay and look great. I wish I had read the specifications better. Instructions say that they can hold 30# max (48in wide).

This could be improved by some simple bracket design changes: a little thicker, better welding or screw-in/bolt-on posts, larger hardware, making the mounting holes on 16" centers. I was especially disappointed with the hardware that secures the shelf to the posts. It was too small and the heads strip easily.

All in all though, I'm pleased with them mounted up and they seem to be holding my old text/reference books fine.

Would just like to see something a little sturdier designed.

Not a happy camper

By 

from Dallas, TX

Verified Buyer

Comments about - So Simple White Floating Wall Shelf:

This really didn't work out for me and therefore have taken both shelves down. The pins used to secure the shelf to the mounting bracket are weak little pins and stripped out immediately. These little pins cannot support any weight so the shelves sagged slightly then when you put something on the shelf, as that is what shelves are for, they sagged even more. Not an attractive look. I am seriously bummed.

Great shelves for the price. Packaged extremely well! I had to return them because I measured wrong then changed my mind and did something different with the space. Sad that I couldn't use them though. If I need floating shelves for another space, I would definitely consider these.

I used espresso shelving in a corner of a room. I ordered 6 shelves & staggered them, butting up into the corner. One shelf on 1 wall, then 1 on the other wall & so on. It's something a little different to do with shelving. Good price too.

More holes in mounting bracket than screws and mollies included in package. Under shelf screws difficult to align. Bracket and shelf went up very easy. Final alignment with interior arm extensions not the easiest task. Look great when up.

Great Shelves at a Great Price

By 

from Verdi, Nevada

Verified Buyer

Comments about - So Simple White Floating Wall Shelf:

I do not understand some of the negative reviews people post about floating shelves, whether they be at websites for the big box stores, here or wherever. Yes, installation does take a little more effort with a level to make certain the bracket is level in both left to right and front to back directions, but that's the same with any shelves. And yes, I did have to add some shims between the wall and mounting bracket to get the bracket perfectly level front to back. But I think the shelves are sturdy and look absolutely great. They were exactly what I hoped they would be.

Good Product!

By 

from Connecticut

Verified Buyer

Comments about - So Simple White Floating Wall Shelf:

We bought 3 shelves for our Grandson's room to highlight his toy truck collection. The installation went smoothly and you can not see the wall brackets holding up the shelves. This shelf system is easier to install than other "floating" shelves which required precise installation of screws to engage slots in the shelves. You can also drill additional holes in the brackets so you can get more screws into studs. I would NOT recommend use of the plastic anchors at all. Better to get at least 4 screws into the studs and/or use molly-bolts.

Nice looking shelves, easy to install

By 

from Boynton Beach, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about - So Simple White Floating Wall Shelf:

The shelves shipped very quickly. The mounting system was better than others, in my opinion as the brace went into the shelf so that it does not just 'hang' off the wall. The screws were of inferior quality so I used pop-toggles instead, and the company refunded me the cost of those. Also had an issue with brackets and the company quickly sent out replacements. All in all, a good value and a great company. And I get lots of compliments on my shelves.

      This shelf can not be cut. The hardware is made for each size shelf, and the center is hollow to allow for the internal bracket system.
