Started in January 2019, Oakford Home Furnishings is proud to be a family run small business specializing in floating shelves! If you have any questions about your options, please do not hesitate to reach out. 


Your living space is important, and we encourage you to include us in the conversation early!


We are also happy to send a digital copy of the installation instructions for these shelves, upon request, to help you make the most informed decision. These include photos and are a step-by-step guide to give you the confidence you need to install these yourself!

Each purchase includes one shelf with:
•    Natural Walnut Hardwood (no stains or other color altering products are used)
•    1.75" or 2” Thick Height (please note the profile photo displays a 1.75” shelf example)
•    Chamfered Edge Profile
•    Heavy-Duty Hidden Metal Bracket
•    Mounting Hardware
•    Installation Instructions 
•    Hand Finishing (using a high quality, food safe, solvent free, non-toxic hard wax oil wood finish and stabilizer)
•    * Since each shelf is made to order, the wood grain pattern/color will vary from order to order and exact dimensions may vary slightly


When installed using the bracket provided with each purchase, each bracket can support approximately 55 pounds of additional weight for each wall stud that it is attached to (please note, the wood shelf itself is considered part of the weight that the bracket is supporting). Our brackets include pre-drilled holes at 1/2" intervals.


Estimated installation time per shelf: 15 minutes


These can be used in any indoor living space, including bathrooms!

Other variations that are available through existing listings in our shop:
•    Thicknesses: 1.75” – 2”
•    Widths: 12” – 65”
•    Depths: 6” – 12”
•    Edge Profiles: Square, Chamfered, Round
•    Wood Types: We may at times stock exotic woods such as Purpleheart, Padauk, Wenge, Teak, and unique live edge pieces, but will always have available for direct purchase: Walnut, Sapele, Maple, Ash, White Oak, and Cherry
•    *Samples (3” x 3” x 0.75”) are also available for purchase in the wood type of your choice

Depending on the other specifications of the project, shelves can be accommodated in:
•    Thicknesses: 1.25” – 2.5” in solid wood, up to 3.5” for hollow shelves
•    Widths: 12” – 72”
•    Depths: 4” – 14”
•    Profile Options: Other Edge Customizations (ex: 2 chamfered and 1 squared edge to sit against side of a wall)
•    Additional Hardware: We can pre-install other hardware for you, such as wine glass holders, hooks etc.
•    Wood Types: Contact us with any special requests, including custom colors using stains. Also available: live edge sourcing
•    Commercial order fulfillment


There can be many factors to consider.


For example, are you trying to install a very long single shelf in your kitchen to create the open kitchen of your dreams? 


You will want to consider whether your wall is even slightly bowed. If it is, it may be best to purchase two smaller shelves that can be made to fit flush against one another. This can be done while still creating the look of a single larger shelf on the wall, and will help prevent a drastic gap between the back of the shelf and the wall once installed. 


Do not hesitate to send us photos of your existing space if you are looking for some help! We can help to recommend wood types, and other details. Collaboration is where we thrive.

  •  Nearly all of our products are made-to-order and as such, time must be taken to design and/or create the items that are part of your order. Please allow 3-5 weeks for the processing and shipping of your order, that said we will always make every effort to get you your order as soon as possible!


    Additionally, we offer free UPS Ground Shipping shipping on all orders within the 48 contiguous states of the United States. Please contact us directly for orders to Alaska and Hawaii to confirm the shipping rates for orders placed and being shipped to these states.

  • While the impact of woodworkers is typically considered very low when it comes to sustainable forestry, it is part of our mission to give back and to make sure that future generations are able to enjoy the long-lasting beauty and sustainability that trees provide.  To further this goal, we have partnered with One Tree Planted to plant trees using a portion of our sales!
