Buckland Floating Shelf, Painted
What’s it made from?
Tulipwood is always the timber we turn to when we know we’re going to use a painted finish. That’s because, as well as being strong and stable, it also has a very fine, very even grain. Because there’s little in the way of knots and swirls, it’s easy to create a flat, smooth and practically perfect finish using eggshell paint which, later down the line, you can easily repaint.
About our paint finish
Salt is the colour Buckland comes in as standard, but you can also choose from any of our colours using our paint service for a small extra fee. Either way, each is applied in our water-based eggshell using a mix of spray and hand-painting techniques so the finish is perfect as can be. By using eggshell, you can not only repaint easily, but your shelves will have a soft, low-sheen finish that’s tactile and has a great depth of colour.
Buckland fixes to the wall using several brackets hidden at the back. These are attached to the shelf itself through strong rods inserted into the timber. Because the rods are slightly longer than the holes, the shelf sits forward from the wall a little – part of its ‘floating’ look and allowing room for LEDs.
How to fit Buckland
It’s best that these shelves are fitted by a professional – when you buy them in store, we can discuss things like cutting them down to size and installing lighting. It’s also worth noting that you’ll need a strong wall to hang them on.
