We offer 4"x6" wood samples with the wood types and stains that we use for our floating shelves so you can see in person what your shelf will look like and how it will match your current color schemes.
TOP TRENDING ITEM
The top design trend for floating shelves is a white wall background and a white oak shelf with a natural raw appearance. Our in house nature stain was created to keep your shelves looking as close to raw as possible. While most oak tends to be an intense yellow-orange color, this stain gives your shelves a low saturation of color
TOP SELLING WOOD TYPE
White Oak is known for its grainy texture and is a clean wood with a small amount of knots. It's natural color is a light to medium yellow/brown. We offer it with a "natural" finish, which is simply a clear coat and several stain colors as well. You have the option to buy all the white oak samples in a bundle pack or choose just a single sample. Browse below to see all your options.

Known for it's rich brown tones, Walnut is a fairly clean wood type with a low amount of knots and cracks. We offer it in a natural finish clear coat which gives a beautiful variety of light and dark browns. If you want less contrast in the colors, you can choose one of our stain colors.

Maple is a light toned wood with a low amount of knots and cracks. Maple wood has a fine, uniform texture with a mostly straight grain. Because Maple is a relatively hard wood, it doesn't soak in stain as well as other wood types so we don't offer a lot of stain options although Brazilian Cherry and Smoke does look great on Maple.
Clear coat which creates a light yellow hue.
Similar to Natural but with a milky white finish.
Similar to Cherry and Alder with Brazilian Cherry but with finer grain texture.
Dark gray hue. Our darkest gray option.
Alder is a rustic wood which means it contains more knots and cracks than any of the other wood types that we offer. This rustic wood looks great in cabins and other outdoor lifestyle settings. Alder is a soft wood and stains great which is why we offer a large variety of stains with this wood type. Alder is less expensive than all our other wood types so if you want to save money, Alder is a good choice.
A clear coat that gives a yellow/orange hue. Similar to white oak natural but more orange and more knots.
Similar to Alder Natural but with less color saturation.
A transparent bluish/gray stain applied allowing you to see the warm tone of the wood under the gray top coat.
A dark gray stain similar to Maple with Smoke but with more knots in the wood.
Medium toned brown with a hint of orange.
Dark brown hues with no hints or red or orange.
Red hues similar to Cherry and Maple with Brazilian Cherry but a little darker and with more knots in the wood.

If you're looking for some beautiful red colored shelves, cherry is a good choice although contrary to popular belief natural cherry has a very light tint of red but does get richer in color as it ages so if you want a more intense red without having to wait years, then you'll want us to add a brazilian cherry stain for you.
