Fitted Floating Shelves

We do a few different types of floating shelves, so here are some examples below. All our shelves have to be professionally fitted by us, but if you want to fit them yourself, we are happy to explain how to do it.

The diagram below helps identify what kind of concealed supports will be needed for your floating shelves.

Just like any fitted shelving, floating shelves also need an accurate plan so you can see how many you can fit in the space you have and check if they look balanced before you put them up for real, because once they are up they are up! Empatika provide bespoke scale computer generated drawings with every job.

Floating shelves start at 25mm thick, 38 and 50mm thicknesses are available too. The following shelves are 25mm thick.

Then these are 38mm thick and the white contrasts nicely with the wall, but you can also have them the same colour as the wall.

These shelves are 50mm thick.

These shelves look like they have grown out of the wall and are perfect for ornaments.

This Milo floating shelf is 100mm thick and is made entirely from waste offcuts produced by Empatika in the process of making fitted furniture. I believe we waste too much in this World, so I decided to come up with a design called the Milo series that would use up these pieces instead of them ending up in landfill or being incinerated and polluting the earth. Each shelf is totally different depending on what waste we have.
