Design YourSHELF

At BluestoneShelves.Com, we want you to be in control of the design process. Only you can decide on the perfect look for your home. That’s why we sell shelves and brackets separately, so you can choose the exact combination of materials and finishes that suits your tastes.

The process is simple...
Just two steps: First you'll choose your shelf, in the size and finish that fits your needs. Then, you'll choose a compatible bracket. It's as easy as that - but there are just a few things you'll need to know, and to keep in mind as you shop.

These details are the key to making sure the process works smoothly for you:

  • Most of our shelves are not packaged with any of the hardware you'll need - so you'll need to choose brackets.
  • The exception to this is our floating shelves - lines like Big Boy and Form Flex. Because they "float" with no visible brackets, they do come with all necessary hardware.
  • To make the process just a bit easier for you, on each shelf page we've listed some of the brackets that work well with it. You can choose one of these brackets, or you can browse our entire selection.
  • Once you've decided on the shelf you want, you'll need to take note of some key dimensions:

    • Height (how thick the shelf is)
    • Depth (the distance from the front edge to the edge that meets the wall)
    • Length (the distance from end to end, which affects how many brackets you'll need for adequate support)
  • Many of our brackets require only that you know the height (thickness) of the shelf. Most can be adjusted to fit many different thicknesses, but please make sure the brackets you choose will work with the thickness of the shelf you've chosen.
  • Some of our brackets actually wrap around the shelf itself. For this style of bracket, you'll have to consider both the height and depth of the shelf you've chosen to find a bracket that is compatible.
  • When ordering brackets, note that some are sold in pairs and others are sold individually. Please check carefully to be sure you order the correct quantity.
  • If you run into problems or have questions, remember we are always here to help! Call our customer service line, toll free at 866-543-1222. Our customer service line is open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central Standard Time.

If you prefer NOT to design your own...
Our selection of merchandise is huge, and we realize that it can be daunting to have so many choices. For those of you who want to keep it simple, we've created an entire line of Shelf Sets that are made up of our most popular shelf and bracket combinations. Shelf Sets include everything you need to install your new shelving at home: shelves, brackets, and all necessary hardware. You don't have to make any additional choices.
