What do you want to do with your alcove space?

Alcove Shelving

Alcove shelving and floating shelves are versatile built-in additions to any room. Whether you want to display loved items, create an attractive centrepiece, or simply add storage, bespoke carpentry offers limitless possibilities.

These shelves can be hand-crafted to match the existing room’s style, or stand out as eye-catching accents. For example, fitting LED lighting under each shelf illuminates and adorns cherished displayed memorabilia. Their floating design creates a sense of space and openness, making even the smallest alcoves feel more expansive.

Alcove Bookshelves

For avid readers and passionate literature enthusiasts, custom alcove bookshelves enhance the overall appeal of the room and transform an ordinary area into a focal point of elegance and practicality. These shelves maximise often-underutilised spaces, integrating into recessed areas, thereby optimising room layout.

Beyond their space-saving attributes, they provide a tailored solution for organising and showcasing books or cherished items, elevating the room’s ambiance while adding character to the space. Picture a bespoke sanctuary where every beloved book finds its rightful place, embraced by meticulously designed shelves. Alcove bookcases, crafted to precise measurements, offer a bespoke treasure trove, offering not just storage but a canvas to display literary collections, transforming a mere nook into a bibliophile’s paradise.

Alcove Wardrobes

In more traditional homes the chimney breast extends up to the bedrooms, so many bedrooms in London have natural alcoves. Fitting bespoke wardrobes floor to ceiling capitalises on this empty space or where clutter can pile up. With a custom design for the interior and exterior, clients can choose the interior storage from shelves, to drawers, to clothing rails and then even to the type of wood, finish, and style of their alcove bedroom cupboards to match their existing décor and personal taste.

Overall, alcove wardrobes offer a practical and aesthetically pleasing solution for utilising unused alcove spaces in a home.

Alcove Cupboards

Built-in alcove cupboards are a smart and stylish way to maximise the often underutilised space on either side of a fireplace or within alcoves in your home. Their usefulness is immediately evident in how they simply merge with the room’s architecture, providing a tailored, built-in look that complements the style of your space.

These cupboards are perfect for storing a wide range of items, from books and decorative objects in the living room to clothing and linens in the bedroom. By making the most of these alcoves, you not only gain valuable storage space but also enhance the room’s overall design.

One of the key benefits of built-in alcove cupboards is their ability to declutter your living space. They are custom-designed to fit precisely into these unique areas, creating a sense of order and organisation. These cupboards offer a sleek and unobtrusive storage solution that keeps your belongings neatly out of sight, helping to create a cleaner, more streamlined environment. Whether you choose to keep them open for display or hide away your possessions behind elegant doors, hand-crafted alcove cupboards are a valuable addition to any home, making the most of every inch of available space.

Chimney Breast Alcove Cupboards

Often, the area around a chimney breast goes underused, but it holds immense potential for bespoke carpentry. Alcove cupboards beside the chimney breast are the ideal solution to declutter your living space while adding an element of sophistication.

These custom-made cupboards can be designed and built-in to blend seamlessly with your room’s decor, offering a discreet yet functional storage solution for items that would otherwise clutter your living area.

Alcove Storage Units

It is wiser to invest in built-in storage cupboards than in pre-made furniture because alcove cupboards can be customised to perfectly fit the specific dimensions of the alcove area, creating a seamless and integrated look. Additionally, alcove units can provide more storage space than pre-made furniture, as they can utilise the full height and depth of the alcove. This saves more floor space to play with.
