Title: Mediocre Quality, but Decent for the Price
Content: My biggest qualm with it is two major issues: quality of the shelf is pretty poor (feels like plastic) and the installation screws that came with it are absurd. Firstly, the rustic wood shelves have a carbonized black finish, which initially appeared appealing. However, upon closer inspection, I noticed some inconsistencies in the coloring and finish. Some areas appeared darker or lighter, which detracted from the overall aesthetic. Once you feel it, it feels like cheap plastic. I wish they at least polished it or put on a layer of sealant. It's not a deal-breaker, but it does make the shelves look less high-end. The installation process was relatively straightforward, with all the necessary hardware included. However, they included these drywall bases that are huge. It literally tears a hole into the wall. Actually, as I installed them, they tore a hole in the wall which I quickly stopped, repaired and replaced with my own drywall anchors. Once you don't use their anchors, it's actually quite nice. The brackets are easily installed and aren't too flimsy, but the shelf itself isn't too stable. I wouldn't trust more than 10lbs on this despite the description saying 33lbs. On the positive side, the size of the shelves is adequate for displaying small decorative items or lightweight storage. They provide some functional use in smaller spaces like bathrooms, bedrooms, or kitchens. The rustic design also adds a touch of charm to the room décor, which I appreciate. In conclusion, the Floating Shelves set is an average product with some notable drawbacks. The quality and finish could be improved, and the mounting drywall anchors could be easily improved, the brackets could be sturdier. However, considering the price point, they are a decent option if you're looking for simple and affordable wall storage. Just keep in mind their limitations in terms of weight capacity and and need to modify the installation.
