How Much Weight Can My Shelves Hold?


It depends on the length of the shelf.

The longer it is, the less support there is to hold heavier items. In other words, a 12-inch shelf will be able to hold more weight without the chance of bowing than a 36-inch shelf.

Tips for a stronger shelf.

  • Add strength to your shelf by adding some decorative support molding to the front of a shelf.
  • Instead of using a cabinet, add open shelf storage with our stylish floating shelves.
