How to Hang Floating Shelves
Get Required Tools
Getting the required tools to hang one floating shelve at your place is essential. And attaching it to the cement wall is a must to avoid unwanted damages.
The tools you will need are power drill, screwdriver, level, drill bit, and the parts of the floating shelve (One shelf board, one metal plate, six anchors and screws, and two short screws).

Place The Backplate
Now, as you have gathered all the tools you will need to put on the floating shelf, you need to identify the location you want it to be.
Place the metal backplate on the wall and mark it with a pencil. Use the level to see if it is placed straight or not.
Install The Metal Plate
As you have measured the place, now you need to make a hole using the driller. Then install the screws of the metal plate to make the installment proper.
Use the anchors for the drywall with no studs. Install all the screws to their position.
The packaging will come along with the instruction guide saying the placements.
Slide The Shelf Onto The Backplate
Lastly, slide the shelf onto the backplate. If the installment of the backplate is proper, then the rack will hold steady.
