I've searched high and low and I need the floating tv unit... it looks pretty simple to find but it's not! Help grin

Bobbycat121 Mon 01-Apr-19 20:32:12

ikea?

FirstNameTiredLastNameAlways Mon 01-Apr-19 20:34:00

I've looked but I can't find anything like that... it does look very Ikea!

Ffsnosexallowed Mon 01-Apr-19 20:34:27

It's not a TV unit, it's a shelf?

FirstNameTiredLastNameAlways Mon 01-Apr-19 20:35:35

I know, but I'm going to use it as a TV unit. Whatever it is, I want it...

ImNotTheDramaLlamaHere Mon 01-Apr-19 20:36:52

It's a floating shelf, there's loads of them if you search it. 🤷🏼‍♀️

FirstNameTiredLastNameAlways Mon 01-Apr-19 20:39:08

There's really not though 🤷🏼‍♀️

The tv is mounted on the wall.

Is the tv not on the wall?

The TV is attached to the wall, and the shelf below is a floating box shelf.

FirstNameTiredLastNameAlways Mon 01-Apr-19 20:51:49

I mean the shelf thing, it's not used as a TV unit in the picture but I'll be using it as one if I can get it smile

Iltavilli Mon 01-Apr-19 20:54:04

I wouldn’t, OP, it isn’t very nice

Samind Mon 01-Apr-19 20:54:54

Could you not contact the site that you've seen it on and ask?

FirstNameTiredLastNameAlways Mon 01-Apr-19 20:56:22

@Samind I found the picture on Pinterest and it doesn't give the link.

I basically have a tiny bedroom but I want a TV somewhere... it may not be everyone's cup of tea but that isn't the AIBU here smile

I don't have much choice unless it's something like that.

IceRebel Mon 01-Apr-19 20:57:06

It looks a lot like this, in which case the poster was correct you need to head to Ikea

I would seriously consider affixing the telly to the wall as here. I knocked mine off a slim shelf and it was only 3 weeks old!!

If it's such a small room why not attach the TV to the wall? Seems daft to add a tv stand when space is at a premium.

WhatToDoAboutWailmerGoneRogue Mon 01-Apr-19 21:03:32

So what is the AIBU?

Any of these any good?

Those types of shelves do not take very much weight.

I agree with a pp, I wouldn't put a substantial TV on a floating shelf like that :S looks like a middle of the night crash waiting to happen.

PurpleCrazyHorse Mon 01-Apr-19 21:47:07

I agree with fixing your TV to wall, even if you put the shelf below. It really won't take the weight and one small knock and your TV will be on the floor.

Our experience with floating shelves (attached with huge screws with specialist rawl plugs), is that they weren't good for anything more than a couple of picture frames! There's a reason why shelves have shelf brackets grin
