Your unique bookcase

There are two wonderful things about purpose-built bookcases. They can be built into almost any space. From the length of a complete wall, to utilising smaller areas such as over the front door, or under a bay window (makes a fabulous seating area/bookshelf).

Not forgetting of course, that you can set the shelf heights exactly. So whether you’re a designer with large art books or a map collector, your bookcase can be purpose-built to your exact requirements.

Bringing your bookcase to life (what we can do)

Here are some of the questions you may want to think about before your initial design consultation:

Have you seen any styles you like? (In magazines, or on Pinterest)
What layout and spaces are you working with?
Any specific finishes you have in mind?
What size of items will you store in the bookcase?

While this may be your first commission, rest assured Colinton Furniture have been designing and building purpose-built bookcases for many years. Read more about how we’ll guide you through the process every step of the way.
