A shelf is a flat, horizontal surface used to hold items for display or storage. A shelving unit is a series of shelves which may or may not have cabinet doors. A single shelf is usually anchored to the wall for display purposes, while a shelving unit often rests on the floor and is not connected to the wall. Shelves may be made of wood, metal, plastic, or some combination of materials.
