Quirky Shelves for Beautiful Bedrooms
Ikea Mammut Shelf

Ikea Mammut Shelf
Advantages: They look great, good for a child's room.
Disadvantages: A bit narrow.
These shelves are on display in Ikea in the children's section, and they are really good for a child's brightly coloured bedroom. They are nothing like what you would expect from a conventional shelf - they are designed to be mounted on the wall at an angle, and have a curved shape to the edges which makes them taper off towards the outside of the item.
In order to fit the shelf on the wall, you need to mark out two screw holes on the wall for slotting screws into the loopholes on the body of the shelf. Once you've got two screws in the wall, the shelf body slides on and gravity keeps it in place. Simple.
We use our shelves for storing children's books. They work just fine, but many children's books are a lot wider than these shelves, so they hang over the edge quite a bit. But they don't fall off, which is obviously a good thing. That's my only gripe about these shelves, because everything else about them is just fine.
Summary: Practical yet fun piece of furniture. Good value.
