If you wish to add more storage solutions in your home while saving horizontal space at the same time, the best thing that you can do is to take advantage of the available vertical space in your home by installing hanging shelves.
Technique #2: Using Shelf Standards
If you plan on affixing multiple shelves in one location, this may be the technique that you need.
What You Will Need:
- Stud Finder
- Wall Standard
- Wood Screw
- Shelf Bracket
Step #1: Find the studs in your wall.
User the stud finder to locate the studs in your wall. Once you find them, mark their location with a pencil.
Step #2: Attach the first standard.
Place the wall standard vertically over one stud.
Put the level on the edge of the standard and adjust the position of the standard on the stud until the bubble in the level is already in the right spot.
Affix the standard to the stud using a wood screw passing through the round mounting hole.
Step #3: Align the second wall standard.
On the neighboring wall stud, position the second wall standard. Place brackets in the same mounting slots on both standards.
Place a level on top of those two brackets. Adjust the height of the second standard until the level indicates that the brackets are already level.
Remove the level from the standards and check if the second standard is already in line with the wall stud. If it is, you can proceed on attaching the standard to the wall using wood screws.
Step #4: Place the shelf over the brackets.
Put the shelf over the brackets. You can add more brackets and shelves (following the same steps) to the standard to enjoy more storage space.
