Floating shelves are not only useful as a place to store and tidy up things at home, but also can function well as an item to enhance the appearance of the room in your home. Not only that, the advantage of floating shelves is that they will not take up space in your home because it is hanging on the wall. So, if you have a room that tends to be narrow, it can be one of the best alternatives for storage and decorating your room.

In these floating shelves, you can store a variety of different items, including photos, ornamental plants, flowers, decorations, books, and other items.
