Glass - Frosted or clear glass shelves are best in contemporary bathrooms, but may also be an attractive contrast to an ornate bathroom. Glass shelving is usually mounted on either two side brackets or hidden wall mounts behind it. Glass shelves are especially attractive when installed as tier shelves, with all the shelves the same size or graduating from large to small as they go up the wall. Frosted glass is best if you want hidden mounts. Glass is the easiest to clean, but also the most prone to cracks. When shopping, look for tempered glass for safety.
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.
Floor-supported garage shelving is another site-built option. One method for constructing these is to form upright supports by running vertical 2x4 boards every 50 inches. Each 2x4 should rest on the floor and be attached to a rafter or ceiling joist at the top. Then, additional 2x4 boards are attached horizontally on edge between the uprights and particle board is used to create the shelf. Dimensions are usually 19-25 inches deep with 25 inches between each shelf. These are only suggested dimensions and can be adjusted to better accommodate the size of the items that will be stored.
