Hi. I have an alcove in my laundry room that measures 43"W x 36"D (right side) x 55"D (left side). My ceilings are 9' high. I have purchased a fridge (not shown in picture) for the left side of the alcove measuring 24" W x 27"D x 74"H.


I would like to add two shelves above the fridge, the full width of the alcove (43"). One shelf just above the fridge (76") and the other around 92". I would like the shelves to be 24"D. If I were to use White Melamine with an MDF core and used 6 shelving brackets ("L" shaped - 12" x 14") (2 on each side wall and 2 on the back wall) would that be enough to hold the shelf?

Or is there a better solution to securing the shelves?

Thank you in advance for your input!
