Sustainable Kitchens

Shelving

Shelving is something we get asked to produce a lot of. Sometimes it is as part of a kitchen, or a home office or sometimes as a project in its own right.

Shelves are vital storage and are often purely functional. However, shelves are a great way to display items. Our customers are asking us more and more to produce feature shelving for clients out of beautiful timbers.

We can make shelving out of pretty much any of the materials we offer.  We find more and more of our clients opt for shelves made of timber, whether it’s reclaimed, locally sourced or FSC certified. Feature shelving looks fabulous as you can see in some of these images.

We love these statement shelves made from solid ash which give the entire end of this living room character.

These fitted bookshelves in a client’s living room are designed to blend in discreetly, while providing ample storage for books. They were designed to complement the arts and crafts period of their home.

Recent Shelving Project

Our clients asked us to design a bespoke shelving unit for their books, maps and other items.

This impressive fitted unit spans the length of the wall and has three internal windows to allow light to flow through into the hallway.

All of the shelves are easily adjusted and have drawers to hide away items that are not for display.

The shelves were painted in white and were made to measure. The sides of each unit were drilled to allow the shelves to be easily adjusted to any height. This means that the shelves will always be able to accommodate any size book that the client owns.

The bookcase looks fantastic in situ! The internal windows were knocked through by us, and have spotlights fitted above to maximise the light in the room. The hallway on the other side of the windows had little natural light, so the new openings aid the flow of light throughout both spaces.
