With so many options on the market, it can be tough to decide which DIY shelving is right for you. Some shelving systems suggest that gluing a shelf directly onto your shower wall is a satisfactory installation method. In reality, gluing a shelf can be time intensive and messy. Worst of all, because a glued shelf lacks structural support, your DIY in-wall shower shelf may have a short shelf life. That’s why we designed GoShelf, which is easy to install, sturdy, and stylish.
Why Glue Isn’t Enough
Installing a stone in-wall shower shelf onto your tile wall isn’t a job for glue alone because there isn’t an adhesive strong enough to hold up a shelf without also using supports. In addition to being ineffective, it’s tough to apply adhesive onto such a small area without making a mess. But it isn’t until after the installation is complete that a glued shelf really presents its biggest drawback: you never really know just how much it can hold. What’s the point of having a shelf if you’re scared to use it?
There’s a Better Way
You can gain extra storage and style in your shower with the GoShelf in-wall shower shelf. GoShelf is a stone corner shower shelf that’s designed to be installed on a wall that has already been tiled. As a simple four-step process, installing GoShelf is a perfect DIY project. Here’s how it works:
- First, you’ll remove existing grout with a hand-held grout saw. (Don’t worry, you won’t need any special equipment, the saw is included in your kit.)
- Then, you’ll add a small amount of glue to your anchoring plates and insert them into the wall.
- Next, add glue to the channels of your GoShelf and secure the shelf by sliding it onto the anchoring plates.
- The last step is to let the glue dry and then seal the shelf with either grout or caulk.
The end result is a sturdy stone in-wall shower shelf that you’ll love using for years to come.
