Fit for an alcove
Alcoves can be a wonderful feature in an older house. They may even be a feature that draws you to make an offer when looking at property.

To make the most of an alcove you really do want something that reaches all the way to the ceiling. This is where built to measure shelving will be your best friend. Whether you choose simple floating shelves that fit seamlessly into the alcove or prefer to add a small cupboard at floor level, done properly, alcove shelving can be truly stylish.
With eco-friendly and recycled products becoming increasingly popular, shelves made from reclaimed wood are a wonderful and incredibly stylish shelving solution. The beauty of reclaimed wood shelving is that no two shelves will look the same. Each will have its own character. Floating shelves draw attention to the materials used. There are no brackets to distract the eye. A simple wooden shelf with a few carefully chosen pieces on display will bring a whole new incredibly stylish touch to your home.
If you are looking to create a real feature with your shelving and want to use it for decorative objects rather than books there are options.
