One simple trick that we use to assist us in placing floating shelves on the wall, is black painters tape. By cutting the tape into the length of each shelf, you can stick it up on the wall in different places to help visualize exactly where you need them. This method saves a lot of headache, and holes in the wall! You can pick up some black painters tape on Amazon for super cheap. Believe us, it’s better than filling holes and getting out the touch-up paint. We’ve been there too many times.
Installation is fairly straight forward after you figure out where they should go. The main tools you’ll need are,
- A stud finder
- Drill with a screw driver attachment
- Tape measure
- Pencil (do not use a ball point pen or marker!)
- And a level
Obviously you can get away with putting floating shelves up without all of these tools, but they are recommended to help make the installation fool-proof.
