Knox shelf brackets
Beautiful, sturdy and ever so versatile, we think our Knox shelf brackets may just become a new favourite in your storage armoury. Get creative and simply complete your shelves with some scaffolding planks from a reclamation yard, or with a piece of made to measure kitchen worktop from your local DIY store. These brackets have a lovely tale behind them too – keep reading below to find out how they came into existence and where they get their name…
Rewind to 2016 when our very own James and Ally Dowsing-Reynolds moved into their new family home. They don’t like to do things by halves, and so it came as no surprise to us to find out that they’d bought a doer-upper… To say the least.
Their dogged determination, hard work, creativity and keen eye for detail paid off though. Tackling everything but the kitchen, they transformed their house into a stunning home. Having used up all their creative juices on the rest of the house, they decided the kitchen needed the expertise of an interior designer.
Long-term friend of D&R, Karen Knox of Making Spaces, was the obvious choice. She took on the challenge of transforming a room that left Ally and James feeling decidedly ‘meh’, into the fantastic hub of the house that it is today.
One of the biggest niggles for James and Ally was the existing piddly little shelves that looked ridiculous against the 3m high ceilings.
Karen set about designing some more appropriate shelves – James and Ally absolutely loved them. James made the first set himself, teaching himself to weld along the way. They were so happy with the results, that making them available on our website seemed like the obvious thing to do! The beauty of these brackets is that you can place them as close or as far apart together, so they can fit into all sized spaces.
James has laid his welding gear to rest (for now), but has partnered with a local company to make these for us. Crafted from steel, they’re incredibly strong and will certainly stand the test of time.
We’ve paired them with chunky pieces of oak shelving, but use whatever suits your style. The brackets come in two lengths to cater for all ceiling heights.
