Metal shelves offer the greatest amount of flexibility, as they are well equipped to support a lot of weight and may be spaced out in any way that the homeowner chooses. If you do go with this option, self- installation will generally require you to use a drill, a screwdriver and a level. Each of these tools can be purchased relatively inexpensively, and generally require little expertise to operate.
The corner shelf can also be a great place for a small television. You don't want to put a lot of weight on them, but a depending how it was mounted to the wall, some can handle up to 50 pounds. Screwing them directly onto the studs can dramatically increase the amount of weight they can bear. So be sure to follow all the manufacturers recommendations and limitations to avoid a disastrous situation.
Designer Tip: Lower or remove the top shelf on each book case and hang a framed print on the back of the book case... to fill in the back wall of the top shelves. Then place one or two small decorative objects on each shelf. Or remove one middle shelf (this is more ideal for narrow book cases) and display a tall object... like a vase... flower arrangement... scultpure.
