Where to buy decorative shelf brackets
Learn our favourite places to pick up DIY shelf brackets
Decorative shelf brackets can transform the look of your home or office. Better yet, they're a DIY project that's surprisingly easy to take on. You don't need any special skills or intricate knowledge of hardware to install a set of decorative shelves - but if you'd like a ready-made reference point, check out our step-by-step guide.
The raw materials you'll need beyond the shelf brackets themselves are likely to be items you already have lying around your tool shed or DIY drawer. They include a tape measure or ruler, electronic or magnetic stud finder, power drill, wood screws, spirit level, and lead pencil.
You can purchase your decorative shelf brackets from a variety of locations. In this post, we'll list a few of our favourite places to buy our products and throw in a bit of advice on how to install your new brackets and shelving for good measure.

At home shows
If you're serious about your love of home renovation and building products, chances are you've attended a home show or expo before. These shows can be a great place to pick up industry-leading products and chat with leading suppliers and trade professionals.
Home shows are an incredible place to get new ideas for renovating your house. Remember to bring your plans and photos along and take any measurements of the household walls in advance.
From online retailers
Don't have time to go to a bricks and mortar store to buy your decorative shelf brackets? Don't worry - these days you can purchase them online and have them delivered right to your door.
While we always recommend going with trusted retailers like Bunnings, a bargain can be appealing, provided you know you're getting a legitimate deal. To ensure you only ever pay what is fair and reasonable for a set of decorative shelf brackets, keep the following cost table in mind.
