How to Mount Floating Shelves

Q:I like the look of floating shelves for my kitchen. How do they mount to the wall without shelf brackets?

A: Floating shelves are basically made of flat, hollow boxes that have no visible mounting hardware. Depending on the method of construction, the hollow shelf mounts to either metal rods or a wooden cleat that fit inside the rear of the box and supports it from within. The rods or cleat are fastened securely into the wall studs for the best holding power.
