This wiki has been updated 23 times since it was first published in February of 2017. Whether you bought a piece of furniture at a yard sale that looks perfect except for its dinged up shelves or you've moved into a house with pantry shelves that have seen better days, these liners can quickly and cost-effectively breathe new life into older armoires, vanities, drawers, and more. Some even come in fashionable colors to give interior spaces a bit of a facelift. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

March 09, 2019:

We realize that not everybody needs the same type of shelf liner. Those who are looking to protect kitchen shelves or drawers from damage would probably be best served by a foam option, such as the Con-Tact Grip, Gorilla Grip Original, Duck Select Grip, and HityTech Multi-Functional. The DII Non-Adhesive is also a great option for places that might be at a high risk of spills, since it can be tossed in the washing machine for easy cleaning. Since it is made from a polyester-viscose blend fabric though, it won't provide as much surface protection as the foam options. Both the Macbeth Collection M-79820 and DII Non-Adhesive come in some striking prints and patterns, making them the best options for adding a bit of style to an otherwise blasé interior. If you are looking for something a bit more durable for a tool shelf or utility room rack, consider the Trinity Frosted Plastic and Warp Brothers PM210-C, or the wood-based Quartet Cork Roll.
