With standing structures, there is much more room for uniqueness. They have a large base upon which there is plenty of room to decorate. They also leave room on tabletops so that the decorator has more surfaces to work with for picture frames and trinkets. There is also not the burden of worrying if a table is sturdy enough to support the decoration.
Floating shelves dont have traditional brackets that can hinder your efforts to create beautiful wall designs. Instead, they have internal brackets that usually run the entire depth of the shelf. They are installed in such a way that you never see the bracket at all. This is done by sliding the shelving onto the brackets by way of an opening in the back of the shelf. This method creates a cleaner and much sleeker look to the shelves. By using this type of shelving, you have the ability to put your shelves anywhere. Even the smallest places will not look cluttered when you install floating shelves.
