Alcove Cabinets & Bookcases
We make alcove cabinets and bookcases to fit all available spaces, and in a variety of materials and styles.
BLACK AND WHITE FITTED ALCOVE BOOKCASES
A pair of fitted alcove bookcases with lower cabinets, made with solid timber shelves that are adjustable on concealed tracks. The whole was designed to be in keeping with the period of the house.
CHINA DISPLAY CABINET
This cabinet is made from a combination of solid timber and moisture-resistant MDF, finished with a satinwood paint. The lower part conceals a radiator cabinet and has a cupboard fitted on either side. The mesh in front of the radiator is made from slats of wood glued together – much stronger than the perforated board often used.
GRAY’S INN LIBRARY
HALF HEIGHT BOOK CASES
These are made using solid oak, and were originally fitted along the length of a corridor. When the customer moved to a larger house nearby, they were removed, and re-fitted in the new house around the back wall of the sitting room.
DINING ROOM ALCOVE CABINETS
Made from a combination of moisture-resistant MDF and tulipwood, this pair of alcove cabinet is fitted with lamps above the top shelves. This was photographed before the paint was applied.
FITTED SIDEBOARD WITH RECLAIMED TOP
The top board was reclaimed from flooring elsewhere in the house, but the lower parts are all made from moisture-resistant MDF, painted with a white satinwood paint.
IRREGULAR SHAPED SHELVES
These are mounted to the wall using long steel bolts secured 150mm into the chimney breast behind. The shelves themselves are made using birch plywood, edged with solid oak, and with oak veneers applied to the outer surfaces. The wall behind at this point was still in need of re-painting.
