Does the shelving system have to be attached to the wall?

Yes, the shelving system is constructed to be attached to the wall, and can not stand on its own. However, we do have a solution which lets you attach the shelf to the ceiling (no drilling needed). Read more about the ceiling mount here, and check out our friend Christer’s shelf here.

The shelf ladders are attached to the wall with either three or two screws, depending on the height of the ladder.
