adjustable shelving options

I'm doing some shelving for someone along a corner section of wall in a hallway which is 900x600x2200

In addition there is enough wall to run shelving overhead above the doorways which are on the same wall.

They need to be adjustable, but I can't think of anything that looks nicer than this gastly stuff:

I put my foot in it a little bit by saying I hate the stuff, but ultimately there is nothing else.

Any thoughts on this ?

In addition, I was thinking about using these for the shelf that runs above the door all the way along the wall:

so a cantilever design.

But how do I work out the maximum width of shelf these brackets can safely take? Keeping in mind they will have books stored on them.

Also, is pine a more sensible choice over melamine shelving for heavier loads?
