    I like floating shelves because there are no obstructions on the shelf below from brackets. I also like a shelf that has a bit of a lip to it so smaller objects would roll off.
    Tools would be a tape measure, screwdriver ( make sure it has the correct tip for the screws you will be using and a level.
    I don't hang anything is a straight line neither vertical nor horizontal so I never worry is everything is perfectly in line.

    Let me know if you have any other questions and goo luck with your project I would love to see a picture when your finished!
