    Promising review: "Great shelves that are super easy to install. They came with a paper ruler to mark the screw holes and more hardware than needed. These would fit into modern, minimalist, or maximalist interiors — definitely recommend." —Lyla R. Moura

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in six colors).

    2. A marble floating wall shelf held up with metal brass brackets that exude *so* much chicness you'll have to cycle what photos go on display just to prove you're not playing favorites.

    Promising review: "I love this shelf. It is so solid and the marble slab is beautiful. I put it above our wall-mounted toilet in our remodeled master bath, and it really adds to the luxurious European hotel feel — and provides some much needed storage in our very small bathroom. Due to the placement of our wall studs, one bracket is in a stud and the other is not, so we used the anchor provided. It feels very sturdy and it doesn't seem like it will fall or grow wobbly over time. It looks like I spent a lot more on this shelf than I did! I love it." —Bethany

    Get it from CB2 for $69.95.

It was really easy to install and it's strong enough to hold the box/recorder, and it looks stylish. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a floating shelf." —Terry F

The hand detail is so fun and trendy without being something that will go out of style anytime soon, while the glass shelf helps to make it not too overwhelming or distracting. I used it in my bathroom and have had no issues with it, so far. Plus, it helps add storage to my small bathroom without taking up a ton of room. Would recommend to anyone, and if I had the room, I would have gotten two!" —Mac5

It's versatile and made of natural wood, so it wont disintegrate in your bathroom like other cheap stuff. Easy to install, with smart adjustable holder brackets that you can fix in all directions — including an incline for the shelf. I put these slightly toward the wall so that stuff doesn't slide off it. Highly recommend." —ME
