How to Mount a Glass Floating Shelf

Our shelves look great in your home and easy to install. This is not your conventional shelf as there is no hardware for installation. Installation involves cutting out grooves into the wall to give the shelf support. We guarantee you will love the finished look as there is nothing like it. By following this brief tutorial you will have a clean looking floating glass shelf installed in no time.

If you aren’t familiar with our shelves, this is how the shelves look before the installation. The tabs on the side of the shelves are inserted into the walls, and therefore are not visible when the shelves are installed (One glass piece including the tabs).

Instructions for Installing a Floating Shelf

Installation can be completed in four simple steps, and requires minimal tools to complete the job. You will need the supplied template, a multi-tool or wall saw, and adhesive caulk. Here is the process:

  1. Use the supplied template to mark the areas for grooves to cut out.
  2. Use a multi-tool or wall saw to cut the grooves on the drywall. Use a tile saw with a diamond blade for tiles or other hard walls.
  3. Test fit the glass shelf before applying the adhesive caulking.
  4. Apply solid color paintable caulking and insert the shelf in place. Clean any excess caulking with a damp sponge.
