    Customer comments about Mantel 48w 10d 4h Wall Shelf:

    Great shelf for our son's nursery. Lovely maple wood that matches other maple pieces we've purchased from Room & Board. The front lip is a wonderful safety addition - some of his wider books don't fit, but it's a small price to pay for a little extra security. Installation was easy, and shelf seems very secure to the wall. Minus 1 star for the shelf being overpriced in my opinion. But, overall, very pleased.

        I purchased two 48w wall shelves and hung them together to create a space to display photographs and art.

        Although it took some effort getting the shelves aligned, the end result was worth it. I recommend this product for anyone looking for the feel of a gallery wall without putting a ton of effort (or holes in your walls).

        Customer comments about Mantel 48w 10d 4h Wall Shelf:

        I have purchased and entire house of Room & Board furniture and accessories. This shelf was to complete an office that was all Room & Board furniture. The first shelf would not hang as the shelf bracket is set back too far to hang on the wall bracket. They sent me a picture of the shelf bracket and it was different than the one that was attached to the shelf I bought. They apologized and sent a new shelf. Same stupid bracket that is impossible to hang on the included wall bracket.

        We bought two of these and hung them above our sink to display our kitchen mug collection on. They were *really* easy to install and make our artwork look great. My only caveat was that they were a big expensive for what they were, but overall, I am very happy with them!

          Customer comments about Wall Shelf 48w:

          This is a great design for flexible shelving.

          I bought them (2) to install above my desk. The edge on the front is good for keeping items from sliding, and they are sturdy enough to hold a few books. The installation system, using the slot screwed into studs, can support far more than 20 lbs (incidentally, the same system is used for hanging my EV charging unit on the garage wall), but perhaps the construction of the shelf itself limits the rated weight to 20 lbs (I haven't tried to test this limit).

          A nice thing about the shelves is that they can be shifted laterally a few inches, so I could center them above the desk. They are also esthetically pleasing, in my opinion.

          Customer comments about 48" Wall Shelf in Maple:

          I ordered two shelves for my home office. I ended up using one in my office and the other in my child's room for books. The shelves look great in both locations. My husband hung them and had no issues. The shelves also came with a built-in level on the back to help with hanging. The color and design were what I expected. The shelves are sturdy, but would not recommend loading them up with heavy books. They are great for smaller books, plants, and magazines.

            Customer comments about 36w Wall Shelf:

            This is a beautiful, well-designed piece. These shelves allow you to create a customized display/storage area in places where a floor-standing bookshelf is not an option. We use it in a tight corner in our 9 year-old daughter's bedroom that would otherwise be wasted space. The shelf has a small lip that is not mentioned in the description, but which is a nice feature to prevent objects from sliding off the edge. Compared to the Float Shelf from R&B, the Wall Shelf to my mind is a more solid and higher quality product.

            The comment by M from Boston about the plywood construction is well-taken. Veneer on plywood is far more desirable than a one-piece wood board.

            Customer comments about 36" Wall Shelf:

            I finally decided to utilize my wall space, and this shelf is just what I was looking for. I use it as an alternative to an end table because I'm a bit limited regarding space. It's clean and simple, but I was kind of surprised that it was composed of composite material. I was expecting it to be made of solid walnut, as is the rest of my furniture. That's not a fault, I'm very satisfied with the purchase.

            Service and delivery comments:

            The delivery team was very cordial and professional. They were careful and beyond helpful with my delivery, which was about one week early to my pleasant surprise. I didn't need to call customer service regarding set-up of anything that purchased. From what I've experienced with R&B so far, I'm sure customer service wouldn't disappoint if/when I have to call. Thanks!

              Customer comments about 48" Wall Shelf in Maple:

              This shelf holds books, pictures and keepsakes in one of our kids' rooms. I judge floating shelves and ledges by how well they hang once installed. I always check for wobbles or any "give." This shelf is very solid and was quite easy to install and hang. From an aesthetic standpoint, the finish and color look great too. We are very happy with this shelf.
